2012 Topps Heritage Minor Leagues #128 Adam Morgan

Phillies 3Yankees 0
Spring Training Game 15 - Sunday Afternoon, March 13th in Tampa
Record - 10-3-2

One Sentence Summary:  Adam Morgan continued to make his case for a rotation spot, throwing four shutout innings against the Yankees in a 3-0 victory.

What It Means:  It was just another Phillies spring win.  Hopefully they're saving some wins for April too.

What Happened:  Cesar Hernandez and Ryan Howard both drove in runs in support of Morgan's efforts.  Brett Oberholtzer relieved Morgan and threw three scoreless frames of his own.

Featured Card:  I don't like to repeat the use of Phillies cards on this here blog, but Morgan is forcing my hand.  He was clearly the star of this game, but I've previously featured all 10 of his cards that I currently have in my collection.  This 1963 Topps-inspired card was first featured back in January 2013 when Morgan, Cody Asche and Justin Friend were added to the list of 2013 non-roster invitees.

Camp Head Count:  61
