Phillies 5, Braves 3
Spring Training Game 22 - Tuesday Afternoon, March 24th in Lake Buena Vista
Record - 11-10-1
One Sentence Summary: Top prospect Severino Gonzalez made a cameo in big league camp, helping the Phillies defeat the Braves, 5-3.
What It Means: Aaron Harang remained behind in Clearwater to pitch (and get hit hard) in a minor league game, so Gonzalez got the spot start in Disney World.
What Happened: Ryan Howard and Darin Ruf hit back-to-back home runs in the third inning. Brian Bogusevic added another hit (to raise his average to .393) and drove in two runs.
Featured Card: Gonzalez pitched three scoreless innings, allowing four hits while striking out two. He's ranked as the club's 15th top prospect by MLB.com. To date, the only cards of his that I have are his 2013 Clearwater team issue, his 2014 Reading team issue and this autographed card from last year's Bowman Chrome set.
