2017 Phillies Team Issue #17 Pat Neshek

Mets 7, Phillies 6
Game 79 - Saturday Afternoon, July 1st in Flushing
Record - 26-53, 5th place, 20 games behind the Nationals

Overdue and Unnecessary Post-Vacation Catch-Up, Part 5

One Sentence Summary:  Pat Neshek suffered through his first rough outing with the Phillies as the Mets won, 7-6.

What It Means:  Neshek has been nearly unhittable this year, and he was recently named the team's solo representative at this year's All-Star Game. Checking the box score while on vacation, I had expected to see any other reliever besides Neshek as the culprit in this loss and it was shocking to see he had allowed three earned runs (including a two-run home run to Asdrubal Cabrera) in the seventh.

What Happened:  The comeback from the Mets wasted a four RBI day from Tommy Joseph, who doubled in the fifth to tie the game and hit a three-run home run (14) in the seventh to give the Phillies a temporary lead.

Featured Card:  Neshek has appeared in the Topps Heritage and Gypsy Queen sets this year with the Phillies, but this is his only baseball card to date featuring him in a non-Photoshopped actual Phillies uniform.
