Game 50 - 2010 Topps National Chicle #21 J.A. Happ

Blue Jays 5, Phillies 3
Game 50 - Sunday Afternoon, May 27th in Philadelphia
Record - 29-21, 2nd place, 1/2 game behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Former Phillie J.A. Happ held the Phillies offense in check while reliever Tommy Hunter had another rough outing in this 5-3 loss.

What It Means:  The Phillies were in first place for less than a day as the Braves won on Sunday.  They'll hope to get back to the top spot during a four-game series in Los Angeles.  The Braves are back home against the Mets.

What Happened:  Nick Pivetta started and allowed two runs while striking out seven in his five innings of work.  Hunter managed just two outs in the sixth before being pulled having allowed a pair of Jays runs to score.  The only Phillies offense came in the sixth when Maikel Franco, Carlos Santana, Aaron Altherr and Nick Williams strung together four straight singles to score three runs.

Featured Card:  Happ has been tough on the Phillies since they traded him to the Astros in the July 2010 Roy Oswalt deal.  In his five starts against his former team, Happ is 5-0 with a 1.45 ERA.
