Game 25 - 2018 Topps Heritage #306 Odubel Herrera

Phillies 7, Braves 3
Game 25 - Friday Night, April 27th in Philadelphia
Record - 16-9, 2nd place, 1/2 game behind the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Odubel Herrera homered twice and Aaron Nola held the Braves in check in this 7-3 victory.

What It Means:  The Phillies and Mets are matching wins and losses so far this week, meaning the Phillies continue to hold steady at a half game behind the first place Mets in the division.

What Happened:  Nola pitched seven innings on the way to his third win of the season, allowing three runs on seven hits.  All three runs allowed came in a shaky first inning for Nola.  Tommy Hunter and Hector Neris pitched the last two uneventful, scoreless innings.  Herrera hit a three-run in the first to tie up the score and a solo home run in the sixth to give the Phils the lead for good.

Jorge Alfaro went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs, including a two-run home run in the seventh.

Featured Card:  When Herrera goes on these hot streaks, he's a lot of fun to watch.  This is 1969 Topps-inspired card from this year's Topps Heritage offering.
