2012 Topps Heritage #161 Ryan Howard

Phillies 10, Braves 5
Spring Training Game 6 - Thursday Afternoon, February 28th in Clearwater
Record - 2-3-1

One Sentence Summary:  The Phils banged out 13 hits and Cole Hamels had another strong outing as the Phils won easily, 10-5.

What It Means:  The offense lives!

What Went Right:  Hamels worked three innings, striking out five.  Ryan Howard and John Mayberry, Jr. both homered and knocked in a pair of runs.  Michael Young had two RBIs as well.

Through the first six games of the spring, Howard (hitting .533) and Domonic Brown (.417) own the hottest bats on the team.  Howard, Brown and Mayberry are the only three Phillies to have appeared in every spring game so far.

Featured Card:  I'm in a Heritage-ish mood these days as we await the release of the 2013 Topps Heritage set.  This is Howard's card from last year's 1963-themed set.
