2016 Topps Phillies #PP-5 Cesar Hernandez

Brewers 6Phillies 3
Game 56 - Saturday Afternoon, June 4th in Philadelphia
Record - 27-29, 4th place, 6 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies plated three in the second and then shut it down for the rest of the game, as the Brewers won 6-3.

What It Means:  The Phils have lost 10 of their last 12.

What Happened:  Second inning home runs from Tommy Joseph (4) and Cesar Hernandez (1) accounted for all the Phillies offense in this game.  Jeremy Hellickson allowed three runs and seven hits in his five-inning start.

Former Phillie farmhands Jonathan Villar (3 for 5 with a solo home run) and Domingo Santana (2 for 4 with a solo home run) continued to punish their original team.

Featured Card:  After losing some playing time recently, Hernandez was inserted back into the line-up and went 3 for 4 with a then big two-run home run in the second.  This is his Topps card from the retail team set.
