Game 14 - 2019 Topps Opening Day #162 Jean Segura

Phillies 3, Marlins 1 (14)
Game 14 - Sunday Afternoon, April 14th in Miami
Record - 9-5, 1st place, 1/2 game ahead of the Braves and Mets

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies won 3-1 in 14 innings following Jean Segura's first home run of the season.

What It Means:  The win bounced the Phillies back into first place, a half game ahead of the Braves and Mets.  They'll open up a three-game series at home against the Mets on Monday night.

What Happened:  Segura's big hit came after Andrew McCutchen had tripled to lead off the 14th.  Cesar Hernandez accounted for the other Phillies run with a solo home run (1) in the fourth inning.  Vince Velasquez no-hit the Marlins through 5 1/3 innings and seven Phillies relievers followed him, keeping the Marlins off the board.  The recently recalled Victor Arano pitched two perfect innings, striking out all six batters he faced.

Featured Card:  Segura has already appeared on six Phillies baseball cards, including the team-issued photo card set and the Topps Opening Day card shown here.  To date, only his team-issued photo card shows him in an actual Phillies uniform and not a computer generated version.
