Game 67 - 2019 Topps Now Road to Opening Day #OD-273 Scott Kingery

Phillies 7, Diamondbacks 4
Game 67 - Tuesday Night, June 11th in Philadelphia
Record - 38-29, Tied for 1st place, 5 games ahead of the Mets

One Sentence Summary:  Paced by a three-run home run from Scott Kingery, the Phillies defeated the Diamondbacks, 7-4.

What It Means:  At least until Wednesday night's loss, the Phillies still held a share of first place at this point.

What Happened:  The offense produced, with Kingery's homer followed by RBI doubles from Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto.  Jay Bruce and Rhys Hoskins added RBI singles providing some insurance for the later innings.  Jake Arrieta battled through six innings and Hector Neris pitched a perfect ninth to secure his 14th save.

Featured Card:  It's rare that a player gets the featured card two games in a row, but Kingery's current hot streak earned him that honor.  I'm sure this means a lot to him.
