Phillies 11, Tigers 6
Spring Training Game 12 - Tuesday Afternoon, March 7th in Lakeland
Record - 6-4-2
One Sentence Summary: The Phillies overcame a shaky start from Aaron Nola to defeat the Tigers, 11-6.
What It Means: A crazy busy week at work means I was almost completely in the dark as to recent Phillies happenings. I'm spending my Friday night catching up with a few game summary posts and reliving the week that was for the Phils. (Spoiler alert: It seems as if not much happened.)
What Happened: Nola was scheduled to pitch three innings, but he only made it through two, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk. This was his second start of the spring.
Brock Stassi hit a grand slam in the sixth inning, his third home run of the spring. Bryan Holaday (1) added a two-run home run off former short-time Phillie Daniel Stumpf.
Featured Card: I always like looking back to see the first card I have in my collection for a particular prospect, especially when that player is poised to potentially make the opening day roster. The first Stassi card in my collection is from the 2011 Williamsport Crosscutters team set, a set that also features cards of Hector Neris, Cody Asche, Maikel Franco and Aaron Altherr.
Camp Head Count: 62
