Game 41 - Friday Night, September 11th in Miami
Record - 22-19

One Sentence Summary:  Aaron Nola recorded his first career complete game shutout, albeit at only seven innings, in this 11-0 Phillies victory.

What It Means:  I just wish the Phillies had saved some of these runs for the second game.

What Happened:  Nola was in complete control, limiting the Marlins to three hits, walking none and striking out 10.  He needed 106 pitches for his effort.  The offense backed him up with Andrew McCutchen (two-run home run, RBI single, double), Rhys Hoskins (three-run home run), Adam Haseley (RBI single, RBI double) and Alec Bohm (RBI double) all having big games.

Featured Card:  Of course it's Nola, and he earned a Topps Now card for his efforts too.

Transaction:  In a flurry of roster moves, Ronald Torreyes (inf) had his contract selected from Lehigh Valley and Neil Walker (inf) was designated for assignment.  Adam Morgan (lhp) was activated from the injured list with Connor Brogdon (rhp) optioned back down.  Finally, Ramon Rosso (rhp) was added as the 29th man for the double header.
