Game 124 - 2019 Topps Total #114 Jean Segura

Padres 3Phillies 2
Game 124 - Sunday Afternoon, August 18th in Philadelphia
Record - 64-60, Tied for 3rd place, 9 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies offense couldn't get anything going against Joey Lucchesi and four Padres relievers, as they lost the game, 3-2.

What It Means:  Any momentum earned from the four-game win streak and Charlie Manuel's return to the dugout as the hitting coach seems to have dissipated.  After an off day Monday, the Phillies have a quick two game series in Boston beginning Tuesday night.

What Happened:  Jason Vargas kept the Phillies in the game, lasting 5 2/3 innings and giving up only two runs on six hits.  With the score tied at 2-2, Jared Hughes allowed a solo home run to Austin Hedges in the seventh to give the Padres the lead.  Bryce Harper exited the game in the fourth due to dehydration.

Featured Card:  Jean Segura accounted for both Phillies runs with two RBI doubles.
