2017 Stadium Club #174 Aaron Nola

Phillies 6, Braves 1
Game 130 - Monday Night, August 28th in Philadelphia
Record - 49-81, 5th place, 30 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Rhys Hoskins' home run streak ended at five straight games, but the rookie still had a key RBI to support Aaron Nola's strong effort in this 6-1 win.

What It Means:  With 32 games to play, the Phillies will have to go 14-18 to avoid a 100 loss season.

What Happened:  Hoskins' double in the sixth scored the go-ahead and eventual winning run. Cameron Rupp (14) added a solo home run in the seventh.  Nola won his 10th game, allowing just a run on five hits over seven innings of work.

Featured Card:  Nola has been one of the few bright spots during this dismal Phillies season, and he'll be pencilled in as one of the top of the rotation starters for 2018.
