2017 Topps #66 Aaron Altherr

Phillies 5, Rays 5
Spring Training Game 6 - Wednesday Afternoon, March 1st in Port Charlotte
Record - 3-2-1

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies came back in the ninth to tie the Rays, thanks to an RBI double from Hector Gomez.

What It Means:  There haven't been a lot of exciting stories for the Phillies after a week of exhibition play.

What Happened:  Aaron Altherr had the big hit, with a bases-clearing triple in the fourth inning. Vince Velasquez pitched two shutout innings in his spring debut, and the Rays did most of their damage off Alec Asher who allowed three runs in his two innings of work.

Featured Card:  Our closest Target had no new Topps Heritage for sale today, so this remains the only 2017 Altherr baseball card in my collection so far.

Camp Head Count:  62
