2017 Topps #348 Jeremy Hellickson

Phillies 3, Marlins 2
Game 20 - Thursday Afternoon, April 27th in Philadelphia
Record - 11-9, 2nd place, 4 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Jeremy Hellickson had another solid outing and Brock Stassi contributed a key RBI triple as the Phillies sunk the Marlins, 3-2.

What It Means:  The Phillies have a six-game win streak going and they'll open a three-game series late Friday night in Los Angeles.

What Happened:  Hellickson has now won four games.  He scattered seven hits in his six innings of work, working out of jams in both the fourth and fifth innings.  Stassi's first career triple scored Michael Saunders who masterfully avoided a home plate tag to score a crucial inusurance run. Hector Neris worked a quick ninth for his third save.

Featured Card:  Hellickson has been fantastic so far this season and his four wins ties him for the top spot in the league in that category with Wily Peralta and Clayton Kershaw.  This is his card from the Topps series one release.
