Game 34 - Monday Night, May 6th in St. Louis
Record - 19-15, 1st place, 1 1/2 games ahead of the Braves
One Sentence Summary: Miles Mikolas shut the Phillies down and Vince Velasquez struggled again in this 6-0 loss to the Cardinals.
What It Means: Velasquez has made six starts so far this season and has pitched six full innings only once. If you go back to August 1st of last season, he's made 16 starts and pitched at least six full innings twice. This isn't sustainable.
What Happened: Velasquez lasted four innings, giving up three home runs. The Phillies offense had five singles and only once had a runner in scoring position.

Transactions: Enyel De Los Santos, who had pitched two scoreless innings in the series finale against the Nationals on Sunday was optioned to Lehigh Valley to make room for Garcia.
