Game 141 - Saturday Night, September 7th in Queens
Record - 73-68, 3rd place, 15 games behind the Braves
One Sentence Summary: Drew Smyly threw seven shutout innings and Cesar Hernandez, J.T. Realmuto and Corey Dickerson paced the offense in this 5-0 win.
What It Means: The Phillies are now looking up at the Diamondbacks ahead of them in the race for the second N.L. Wild Card. They're tied with the Brewers at three games behind the Cubs, while Arizona is only 1 1/2 games back.
What Happened: Hernandez led off the game with a home run (9), and he'd score the second run of the game in the fourth with an RBI single. Realmuto followed that with an RBI single of his own before Dickerson brought them both home with an RBI double.
Featured Card: Smyly allowed four hits and struck out six in his winning effort. Smyly may not ever receive a Phillies baseball card, and to date his only 2019 baseball card can be found in the Topps Rangers retail team set.
