1982 Donruss #354 Pete Mackanin

Twins 6Phillies 5
Game 73 - Late Wednesday Night, June 22nd in Minneapolis
Record - 30-43, 4th place, 13 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Adam Morgan had another mediocre outing and the Twins edged the Phillies, 6-5.

What It Means:  The free fall continues and the Phillies now have a nine-game losing streak.

What Happened:  Home runs from Cameron Rupp (6) and Andres Blanco (3), RBI singles from Blanco and Ryan Howard and a big error from Twins right fielder Max Kepler gave the Phils a 5-2 lead in the fifth.  The Twins battled back though with the big blow being a two-run triple from Eduardo Escobar that Peter Bourjos probably should have caught.

Morgan gave up 11 hits and five runs (four earned) in his five innings of work, and he's most likely IronPigs-bound once Vince Velasquez is activated from the disabled list.

Featured Card:  I'm at a complete loss, so here's another card of manager Pete Mackanin with the Twins.  This card comes from of my all-time favorite sets - 1982 Donruss.
