Blue Jays 9, Phillies 6
Spring Training Game 6 - Saturday Afternoon, March 5th in Dunedin
Record - 2-3-1
One Sentence Summary: Aaron Nola got hit hard in his first spring start as the Blue Jays downed the Phillies, 9-6.
What It Means: Nola and Jeremy Helickson seem to be the front runners to get the opening day nod from manager Pete Mackanin. There's still a lot of spring training left to determine which of the two starters comes out on top.
What Happened: Nola gave up two first inning home runs, allowing four runs total in his two innings of work. Taylor Featherston homered for the Phillies.
Featured Card: The "Hendu Flu" is making its way through the Phillies clubhouse as several players and coaches have been sent home sick over the last few days. By all accounts, hitting coach Steve Henderson is patient zero, hence the designation of the wide-spread illness as the Hendu Flu.
Camp Head Count: 66
