Game 150 - 2018 Topps Big League #285 Jorge Alfaro

Phillies 5, Mets 2
Game 150 - Tuesday Night, September 18th in Philadelphia
Record - 77-73, 2nd place, 5 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Backed by RBI pinch-hits from Wilson Ramos and Justin Bour, along with a three-run home run from Jorge Alfaro, the Phillies rode a 5-run 6th inning to a 5-2 win over the Mets.

What It Means:  The Braves continue to lose, and the Phillies are now 5 1/2 back in the East following this game.

What Happened:  Aaron Nola allowed two runs on six hits in his 5 2/3 innings of work and came away with a no decision.  One of the runs he allowed came on a solo home run to opposing pitcher Steven Matz.  Hector Neris pitched a scoreless 9th inning to record his first save since June 16th.

Featured Card:  Alfaro earns the card for his huge 6th inning blast.

Transaction:  Aaron Loup was activated from the disabled list prior to the game, giving the Phillies 40 active players on their roster.  Hard to believe, Harry.
