Game 92 - 2018 Phillies Team Issue 2 #38 Jorge Alfaro

Phillies 5, Orioles 4
Game 92 - Thursday Night, July 12th in Baltimore
Record - 52-40, 1st place, 1/2 game ahead of the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  In a make-up game attended mostly by a few thousand Phillies fans, Nick Pivetta had a decent outing and Jorge Alfaro drove in 3 runs in this 5-4 win.

What It Means:  The Phillies were back alone atop the division in first place following this game.

What Happened:  Pivetta didn't allow a hit through the first four innings, ultimately going 6 2/3 innings and striking out seven.  Seranthony Dominguez pitched a perfect 9th to record his 9th save.  Cesar Hernandez, Scott Kingery and Alfaro all enjoyed 3-hit days.

Featured Card:  Alfaro's three RBIs came on a two-run double in the 4th and a solo home run (6) in the 6th.  This is his second series, team-issued card autographed during the recent Phillies Phestival.
