What It Means: Jeremy Hellickson threw the last complete game victory for the Phillies back on September 17, 2016.

Featured Card: If he keeps pitching like this, I'm going to need some more Eflin cards for these game summary posts! He has two Topps cards so far this year, found within the retail team set and the Topps Heritage set.
