Game 59 - 2017 Bowman Platinum Top Prospects #TP-DC Dylan Cozens

Cubs 7, Phillies 5
Game 59 - Wednesday Night, June 6th in Chicago
Record - 32-27, 3rd place, 2 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Dylan Cozens' first career home run in the 9th was all for naught as Jason Heyward hit a walk-off grand slam off Adam Morgan to deliver the 7-5 win for the Cubs.

What It Means:  I really didn't want to go back, look at the box score for this game, and compose a post.  This is an example of a game I'd rather just skip.

What Happened:  Cozens' blast (1) gave the Phillies a momentary, euphoric 5-3 lead heading into the bottom of the 9th.  Seranthony Dominguez showed he was human allowing a walk and a single before he was lifted in favor of Morgan.  With the bases loaded, Heyward didn't miss the meatball Morgan put on a tee for him to launch into right-center field.

Aaron Altherr hit a 2-run home run (6) in the 6th and Aaron Nola allowed 3 runs on 4 hits over 6 innings pitched.

Featured Card:  I'll still give Cozens the card since the Phillies should have won this game.

Transaction:  J.P. Crawford was activated from the disabled list and Mitch Walding was sent back down to Lehigh Valley.
