2016 Phillies Team Issue 2 Update #19 Tommy Joseph

Phillies 8White Sox 3
Game 152 - Wednesday Night, September 21st in Philadelphia
Record - 69-83, 4th place, 20 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies stunned Chris Sale and the White Sox with an offensive barrage and an 8-3 win.

What It Means:  This was very unexpected.  Sale had his worst outing of the season, allowing six runs on seven hits in just four innings of work.

What Happened:  Tommy Joseph went 2 for 5 with three RBIs, including a two-run home run (21) off Sale in the first inning.  Maikel Franco and Cameron Rupp also drove in a pair of runs a piece. Jared Eickhoff won his 11th game, limiting the White Sox to three runs - all on solo home runs.

Featured Card:  Joseph is now one home run behind Ryan Howard and Franco (22) for the team lead.

Field Report:  I attended this game as part of a work function, so that does that even really count?

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