1985 Topps Glossy All-Stars #1 Paul Owens MG

Yankees 6, Phillies 2
Spring Training Game 18 - Wednesday Night, March 13th in Tampa
Record - 7-10-1

One Sentence Summary:  Cliff Lee became the latest starting pitcher to suffer a shaky outing as the Yankees defeated the Phillies, 6-2, under the lights in Tampa.

What It Means:  Another day, another struggle.

What Went Wrong:  Lee allowed five runs (two earned) on six hits in 2 2/3 innings.  The Phillies defense committed four more errors.

Featured Card:  No matter what the outcome of tonight's game was, I decided at some point this afternoon I was going to feature a card of former Phillies farm system director/general manager/manager Paul Owens.  Nicknamed "The Pope" due to his resemblance to Pope Paul VI, I couldn't help but think of Owens throughout the past few days during the papal conclave in Vatican City.
