Joseph Walks Off Again; Ben & Doug Celebrate!

2017 Chachi In Action #2
Phillies 4, Reds 3
Game 47 - Saturday Afternoon, May 27th in Philadelphia
Record - 17-30, Tied for 4th place, 12 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Tommy Joseph enjoyed his second walk-off hit in three games as the Phils won against the Reds, 4-3.

What It Means:  This was an exciting, enjoyable game!  Imagine that!

What Happened:  Solo home runs from Cesar Hernandez (5), Michael Saunders (6) and Joseph (8) accounted for the first three Phillies runs.  With the score tied in the ninth, Aaron Altherr singled and went to second on a wild pitch.  Joseph singled him home to start the on-field celebration.

Featured Cards:  Joseph earns an In Action card and Tommy Greene (see below) joins the Fan Favorites set.

Field Report:  And we were there!  We enjoyed the game from Section 115, Row 8, which is prime pre-game autograph territory.  Here are the highlights from our day:

  • Doug staked out a spot at the corner of the Phillies dugout and scored autographs from Mickey Morandini, Brock Stassi and Vince Velasquez.  
  • Ben and Jenna walked around the ballpark prior to the game and got to talk to Greene (again) up on the rooftop deck.
  • This seemed like a quickly paced game and it was generally a high-energy crowd.
  • Following the game, we waited in line for about 20 minutes so that both our boys could run the bases.
