2016 Topps Wrigley Field Celebrates 100 Years #WRIG-21 Cole Hamels

Cubs 6Phillies 2
Game 48 - Friday Afternoon, May 27th in Chicago
Record - 26-22, 3rd place, 2 1/2 games behind the Mets and Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Adam Morgan struggled again, done in by a four-run fourth inning, as the Cubs easily handled the Phillies, 6-2.

What It Means:  Morgan allowed three home runs and his ERA is now up to 6.67.  As much as I like Morgan, I'm curious how much longer the Phillies will leave him in the rotation.  Righty Zach Eflin has made eight starts for the Triple-A IronPigs, and he's 5-0 with a 2.05 ERA.  Alec Asher (3-0, 1.53 ERA) has also looked good for the IronPigs in his four starts.

What Happened:  Morgan allowed six runs on eight hits in his four innings of work.  Maikel Franco drove in both Phillies runs with a sacrifice fly in the third and an infield single in the seventh.

Featured Card:  The last time the Phillies visited Chicago last July, Cole Hamels threw a no-hitter in his final start for the Phillies.  I created a Chachi Highlight card to celebrate the occasion, and Topps also gave Hamels a card in their Wrigley Field Celebrates 100 Years insert set.
