Game 35 - 2020 Topps Big League Flipping Out #FO-13 Bryce Harper

Mets 5Phillies 1
Game 35 - Saturday Night, September 5th in Flushing
Record - 19-16, 2nd Place, 2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The Mets didn't stop chipping away at Spencer Howard and Ranger Suarez, and the Phillies offense went 0 for 6 in this 5-1 loss to the Mets.

What It Means:  The loss ended a five-game winning streak.  That in and of itself wasn't good, but the Phillies also lost two outfielders in the process.  Jay Bruce aggravated a quad injury and Roman Quinn exited after slamming into the outfield wall in the sixth attempting to make a catch.

What Happened:  Howard went four innings and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits.  Suarez made his 2020 debut and gave up 2 more runs in 1 2/3 innings of work.  Rhys Hoskins scored the only run for the Phillies with a solo home run in the first.

Featured Card:  Bryce Harper was ejected in the fifth for trying to ask umpire Roberto Ortiz about a questionable foul ball call.  Harper hardly flipped out (see what I did there?) but his questioning was enough to earn the ejection.  It was Harper's third ejection as a Phillie.  Over his last 11 games, Harper is hitting .135 (5 for 37) with a double and 2 RBIs.
