Game 56 - 2020 Topps Pro Debut #PD-125 Alec Bohm

Nationals 8
, Phillies 7 (Game 2 - 8 Innings)
Game 56 - Tuesday Night, September 22nd in Washington
Record - 27-29, 3rd Place, 6 1/2 games behind the Braves

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies battled back and sent the game to extra innings, only to have Brandon Workman's performance lead to another brutal loss.

What It Means:  This is most likely the back breaker.  The team's chances of reaching the postseason in 2020 are now slim as this loss dropped them to 10th place in the National League rankings, with only the top 8 teams making the play-offs.

What Happened:  With the score tied 6-6, the Phillies took the lead in the 8th when Phil Gosselin (the ghost runner to start the inning) came around to score on a Roman Quinn bunt and a throwing error from Nationals' third baseman Brock Holt.  Workman allowed a two-run home run to rookie Yadiel Hernandez in the bottom of the inning to give the Nationals the win.  

In his 14 appearances with the Phillies, Workman has been a nightmare.  He's now 1-4 with a 6.92 ERA, having allowed 11 runs on 23 hits and 9 walks over 13 innings pitched.  

Featured Card:  In an otherwise very frustrating season, Alec Bohm has at least provided some promise of the future's potential.  He had two more hits in this game to raise his average to .333.  He leads the entire National League in hits for the month of September.  Bohm is currently first among all N.L. rookies in RBI (22) and average, and second among all N.L. rookies in doubles (10), OPS (.884) and runs scored (23).
