Padres 3, Phillies 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.
