2015 Topps Phillies #PHP-14 Jerome Williams

Cardinals 9Phillies 0
Game 125 - Sunday Afternoon, August 21st in Philadelphia
Record - 58-67, 4th place, 16 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Vince Velasquez suffered through his latest poor outing as the Cardinals demolished the Phillies by a score of 9-0.

What It Means:  It's not going well.  As Jayson Stark pointed out here, the Phillies have now trailed by a combined score of 19-5 at the time Velasquez has exited his last three starts.  That's not good.

What Happened:  Mike Leake, Matt Bowman and Jerome Williams combined for the shutout.    The Cardinals hit four home runs - two off Velasquez and two off Frank Herrmann, whose Phillies ERA is now 15.00.

Featured Card:  Yes, that Jerome Williams.

As discussed in this post, I'm taking a poll on how collectors track baseball card collections. 

Please vote in the poll on the sidebar if you haven't already.  Thanks!
