Grapefruit Game 25 - 2017 Topps Heritage High Numbers #667 Aaron Altherr

Red Sox 6, Phillies 5
Spring Training Game 25 - Monday Afternoon, March 19th in Ft. Myers
Record - 9-15-1

One Sentence Summary:  Drew Hutchison impressed with five solid innings and Aaron Altherr drove in four runs in this 6-5 loss to the Red Sox.

What It Means:  The Phillies and Red Sox will next meet in late July, then again in mid-August and finally in the 2018 World Series.

What Happened:  Hutchison has been mentioned as a possible fifth starter, and this appearance certainly didn't hurt his chances.  He allowed a run on three hits while striking out three.  Nick Williams was responsible for the non-Altherr run, doubling home Andrew Knapp in the third.

Featured Card:  Altherr will start the season as the team's fourth outfielder with Rhys Hoskins, Odubel Herrera and Nick Williams slated to be the three regulars.  I wouldn't be surprised however if Altherr eventually sees just as much action as Herrera and Williams.

Camp Head Count:  47

Shall I assume that the results of all the meetings between the two teams will be like this one?
