Spring Training Game 11 - Monday Afternoon, March 4th in Bradenton
Record - 5-5-1
One Sentence Summary: John Lannan and a trio of relievers combined for the shutout and Michael Young drove in a pair of runs as the Phillies defeated the Pirates, 5-0.
What It Means: It was another good showing for the Phillies and their pitchers. Lannan, the presumed fifth starter, improved his spring record to 2-0 and lowered his ERA to 1.13.
What Went Right: Lannan pitched well, but the Phillies radio team was very impressed with Mike Adams' perfect inning in the fourth. Adam Morgan and Raul Valdes pitched the final five scoreless innings.
I'll look to track down all the Philllies cards in the set, and the Beatles card in the News Flashback set will be added to my collection as well. One small quibble about the Beatles card - Couldn't Topps have found a picture of the Beatles from 1964 with George Harrison included?
