2012 Multi-Ad Reading Phillies #20 J.C. Ramirez

Angels 7, Phillies 0
Game 105 - Late Wednesday Night, August 2nd in Anaheim
Record - 39-66, 5th place, 23 1/2 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  A seven-run third inning doomed the Phillies in this 7-0 loss to the Angels.

What It Means:  The bats have once again gone quiet for the Phils.

What Happened:  Only two of the seven runs allowed by Jake Thompson were earned due to a costly error by Cesar Hernandez.  Mike Trout, C.J. Cron and Kaleb Cowart all homered after Hernandez's miscue.  The Phillies offense had six singles.

Featured Card:  J.C. Ramirez pitched eight shutout innings against his former team, earning his 10th win of the season.  Acquired from the Mariners in 2009 in the still-painful Cliff Lee deal, Ramirez appeared in 18 games for the 2013 Phillies, all in relief, racking up a 7.50 ERA.

Transactions:  Drew Anderson spent just one day on the big league roster before being optioned back down to Double-A Reading.  Outfielder Cameron Perkins was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley while Daniel Nava was activated from the disabled list and Edubray Ramos was recalled.
