Game 61 - 2015 Topps Heritage High Numbers #506 David Buchanan

Brewers 12, Phillies 4
Game 61 - Friday Night, June 8th in Philadelphia
Record - 32-29, 3rd place, 3 games behind the Braves and Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Vince Velasquez was hit early and often in this 12-4 shellacking from the Brewers.

What It Means:  The Phillies are 1-6 so far in June, with their visit to first place back on May 26th now a distant, but pleasant, memory.

What Happened:  Velasquez gave up 10 runs in his 3 2/3 innings of work.  Ryan Braun hit a pair of home runs and the Brewers banged out 13 hits.  Carlos Santana hit his 10th home run and Cesar Hernandez had a three-hit night.

Featured Card:  Velasquez became the first starting pitcher to allow 10 runs in a game since David Buchanan accomplished the feat on August 11, 2015 against the Diamondbacks.
