Game 150 - 2019 Topps Total #381 Zach Eflin

Phillies 4Braves 1
Game 150 - Wednesday Night, September 18th in Atlanta
Record - 78-72, Tied for 3rd place, 13 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  Zach Eflin pitched one of the best games of his season as the Phillies defeated the Braves, 4-1.

What It Means:  The win meant the Braves wouldn't be able to clinch the N.L. division pennant while the Phillies looked on from the visiting dugout.  (The Braves would eventually clinch on Friday night.)

What Happened:  Bryce Harper put the Phillies ahead for good with a two-run home run (32) in the fourth.  Cesar Hernandez added a solo home run (12) in the sixth and Jean Segura walked with the bases loaded to plate the Phillies' final run.

Featured Card:  Eflin threw seven innings of five-hit ball, striking out four.  Arguably the team's most reliable relievers this season, Jose Alvarez and Hector Neris, pitched the final two scoreless innings.  This is Eflin's most recent card, from the resurrected, and now online-only release of Topps Total.
