2014 Topps Chrome Refractor #95 Cole Hamels

Blue Jays 6, Phillies 3
Spring Training Game 19 - Saturday Afternoon, March 21st in Clearwater
Record - 9-9-1

One Sentence Summary:  Cole Hamels had another mediocre outing, allowing two first inning home runs in a 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

What It Means:  It means nothing but Hamels ERA is now up to an un-Hamels-like 7.59.

What Happened:  Perhaps the most interesting thing to come out of this game was that Ben Revere started in left while Odubel Herrera started in center.  Both outfielders threw out runners at home and I honestly can't remember seeing Revere ever throw out anyone at home.

Featured Card:  How about one more card from the recent package I received from Section 36?  I don't actively collect parallel cards, but I'll gladly add parallel Phillies cards to my collection whenever they come along.  This is the shinier refractor version of Hamels' 2014 Topps Chrome card.

Camp Head Count:  45 - 1 = 44.  Prior to the game, catcher Tommy Joseph was optioned to minor league camp.
