2017 Topps #352 Cameron Rupp

Phillies 3, Rockies 2
Game 109 - Sunday Afternoon, August 6th in Denver
Record - 40-69, 5th place, 25 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Cameron Rupp hit a clutch, two-run double in the ninth off Rockies closer Greg Holland to give the Phillies a 3-2 win.

What It Means:  The Phillies will rest up on Monday before a quick two-game series with the Braves in Atlanta beginning on Tuesday night.

What Happened:  Aaron Nola turned in another impressive outing, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out seven.  A questionable ball call in the seventh preceded a double from Charlie Blackmon to give the Rockies a 2-1 lead.  Maikel Franco started the scoring for the Phillies with a solo home run (17) in the second.

Featured Card:  It's been a rough year so far for Rupp, as evidenced by the fact this is the first time one of his baseball cards has been featured in a game summary post this season.
