|2014 Donruss No No's #7|
Phillies 6, Orioles 5
Spring Training Game 15 – Wednesday Afternoon, March 12th in Sarasota
Record – 3-10-2
One Sentence Summary: The offense came to life led by Domonic Brown's three-run triple, as the Phillies defeated the Orioles, 6-5.
What Happened: Four Phillies had triples in this game – Brown, Ben Revere, Freddy Galvis and Bobby Abreu. Abreu also added a double for good measure. Starting pitcher A.J. Burnett got roughed up a little in his four innings of work, allowing three runs on four hits. Perhaps the most interesting development in Florida is the fact that Galvis has started two days in a row at short over Jimmy Rollins, who is seemingly perfectly healthy. Manager Ryne Sandberg has made direct reference to Galvis' "energy and his positive influence," while offering a "no comment" when asked the same about Rollins.
Featured Card: Other than the game action, the most interesting Phillies-related news yesterday was the positive confirmation that former pitcher Roy Halladay had joined Twitter. Maybe if I post one of his cards, he'll follow me on Twitter? Pitcher David Buchanan re-tweeted me yesterday, so maybe Halladay will today? (Seriously though, I'm a grown man with kids, but having Buchanan re-tweet a link to my post yesterday was pretty cool.)
This is one of his insert cards from the recently released Donruss set, which pays homage to the original 1986 Donruss set and Doc's no-hitter against the Reds in Game 1 of the 2010 N.L.D.S.
