One Sentence Summary:  Braves starting pitcher Tyrell Jenkins earned his first Major League win, limiting the Phillies to four hits in this snooze-fest.

What It Means:  The Phillies fell to 15 games behind the Nationals in the N.L. East, the furthest out of first place they've been all season.

What Happened:  Vince Velasquez labored through six innings, allowing two runs on seven hits. Surprisingly, Velasquez finds himself the subject of a trade rumor that could have him potentially going to the Rangers. The offense managed five hits, including a double from Cody Asche.

Featured Card:  Posting a card for Maikel Franco is more about trying to send him good vibes more than his performance in this particular game.  Since July 15th, Franco is hitting .150 with one home run and seven RBIs.  In this game against the Braves, he saw a total of four pitches, making four outs in the first swing of each of his four at-bats.
