Phillies 5, Yankees 5
Spring Training Game 1 - Tuesday Afternoon, March 3rd in Clearwater
Record - 0-0-1
One Sentence Summary: Ryan Howard had two hits and an RBI, but Mario Hollands allowed four Yankee runs in the top of the ninth as the game ended in a stalemate.
What It Means: It means I got to listen to Phillies baseball today while there was sleet/freezing rain in Philadelphia. Scott Franzke did his best to not rub it in, but I counted at least three times that he noted it was a gorgeous day for baseball in Clearwater.
What Happened: David Buchanan drew the start for the Phillies, pitching two innings and allowing the game's first run in the first. Aaron Altherr had an RBI single in the seventh.
Featured Card: I'm really hoping Howard turns things around this season and I've read nothing but positive accolades concerning his first few weeks of camp. I recently acquired this Howard bat relic card from last year's logo-less Donruss set.
