Game 139 - 2004 Donruss #323 David Bell

Reds 4Phillies 3 (11)
Game 139 - Thursday Afternoon, September 5th in Cincinnati
Record - 72-66, 3rd place, 13 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Phillip Ervin hit a walk-off winning home run off Nick Vincent to send the Phillies to an extra-inning 4-3 loss.

What It Means:  What a disappointing series.  The Phillies could have come away having won three out of four, or even sweeping, but they come away with a series split.  They'll head to Citi Field next for a weekend series against the Mets, who remain a game behind them in the standings.

What Happened:  J.T. Realmuto hit a solo home run in the eighth to tie the game at 3-3.  The Phillies offense went 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position, with a big clutch hit eluding them for most of the afternoon.

Featured Card:  There are 22 games remaining, I'm frustrated by the Phillies and I'm running out of steam.  Here's a card of current Reds manager David Bell.

Transactions:  Maikel Franco was recalled from Lehigh Valley, bringing the active roster to 34 players.
