Game 63 - 2018 Phillies Team Issue 2 #56 Zach Eflin

Phillies 4, Brewers 3
Game 63 - Sunday Afternoon, June 10th in Philadelphia
Record - 33-30, 3rd place, 3 games behind the Braves and Nationals

One Sentence Summary:  Zach Eflin battled the Brewers and rain through 6 innings, striking out 9,  and Rhys Hoskins drove in a pair of runs in this 4-3 win.

What It Means:  The win snapped a four-game losing streak as the team heads into an off-day before opening a three-game set with the Rockies on Tuesday night.

What Happened:  Eflin did what Vince Velasquez and Jake Arrieta couldn't, by keeping the Brewers' offense in check and limiting them to three hits.  The bullpen made it interesting with Luis Garcia recording the first two outs in the 9th and Tommy Hunter recording the last out (and notching his first save) with runners on second and third.

Featured Card:  This is the second game in a row in which Eflin has turned in a stellar performance, and I consider it to be a good problem to have that I'm running out of his cards to feature in these game summary posts.
