2017 Topps Now Road to Opening Day #OD-273 Freddy Galvis

Braves 5, Phillies 2 (Game 2)
Game 132 - Wednesday Afternoon, August 30th in Philadelphia
Record - 49-83, 5th place, 32 games behind the Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Julio Teheran held the Phillies to five hits and Ender Inciarte combined to go 8 for 10 in the double header as the Braves won game two, 5-2.

What It Means:  Things I'm looking forward to as a Phillies fan, in no particular order:

- September call-ups
- A second series team-issued photo card set (hopefully)
- Working on the 2018 Chachi set
- Freddy Galvis winning a Gold Glove
- Following the roster overhaul this offseason
- Counting down to pitchers and catchers reporting to Clearwater

What Happened:  Mark Leiter, Jr. had a good day, allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings.  Hyun Soo Kim had a multi-hit game for the Phillies.

Featured Card:  In what was seen as an effort to keep Freddy Galvis in the line-up when J.P. Crawford is recalled from the IronPigs on Friday, Galvis started this game in center field.  It was his first career game professionally at that position and fortunately he had an uneventful game.

Transaction:  Ricardo Pinto was added to the roster as the 26th man given the double header.
