Phillies 11, Orioles 4
Spring Training Game 30 - Sunday Afternoon, March 24th in Clearwater
Record - 13-14-3
One Sentence Summary: In their second to last game of the spring, the offense unloaded for 18 hits in this 11-4 win over the Orioles.
What It Means: The Phillies will play one last time in Clearwater this afternoon before making the trip north to start the season on Thursday.
What Happened: Aaron Altherr and Odubel Herrera each had three hits, including home runs for each. Cole Irvin got the start, allowing a run over his four innings of work.
Featured Card: Altherr's performance raised his average to .267 and solidified his spot on the bench to open the season. The outfielder is out of options so a tough decision could be looming once Roman Quinn (who is also out of options) is eligible to come off the Injured List.
Camp Head Count: 30. I think the opening day roster is all but set at this point, with Quinn and Tommy Hunter destined for the Injured List and the 3 remaining non-roster invitees (Sean Rodriguez, Rob Brantly and Josh Martin) possibly sticking around to play for the IronPigs.
