2017 Donruss #21 Maikel Franco

Cubs 5, Phillies 4
Game 26 - Wednesday Night, May 3rd in Chicago
Record - 12-14, Tied for 2nd place, 5 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  The Phils held a 3-1 lead heading into the sixth, but Jerad Eickhoff faltered and the Cubs came back to win the ballgame, 5-4.

What It Means:  Eickhoff remains winless on the season at 0-3, despite a respectable 4.00 ERA.

What Happened:  Maikel Franco provided the bulk of the offense for the Phillies in this game, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Featured Card:  Not much doing in this game from a Phillies perspective, so here's Franco's Diamond Kings card from this year's Donruss release.  This is a Diamond King in name only, as it bears little to no resemblance to the Diamond King cards from the Donruss glory years of the 1980s.
