1994 Collector's Choice #662 Jeff Juden

Diamondbacks 9, Phillies 2
Game 73 - Late Saturday Night, June 24th in Phoenix
Record - 24-49, 5th place, 20 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Ben Lively couldn't single-handedly defeat the Diamondbacks as the much better team beat the struggling team, 9-2.

What It Means:  The modest two-game win streak is over.

What Happened:  The only offense generated by the Phillies came courtesy of Lively, who hit his first big league home run in the fourth with a runner on base.  The rest of the line-up managed five singles.

Featured Card:  At 25 years and 111 days old, Lively became the youngest Phillies pitcher to hit a home run since Jeff Juden in 1995.  Also of note is that Lively is the seventh Phillies pitcher to homer as a rookie, with Tyler Green being the most recent on August 23, 1995.

Phillies Debuts:  Hoby Milner became the eighth player to make his major league debut with the Phillies this season, and 16th player overall making his Phillies debut.

16.  Hoby Milner (lhp) - Entered in relief in the sixth inning for Lively, allowed an inherited runner to score and a run of his own in one inning pitched.  His run scored when he loaded the bases and then hit David Peralta with a pitch.  Milner faced one batter in the seventh, striking out Jake Lamb.
