Phillies 5, Pirates 5
Spring Training Game 33 - Tuesday Afternoon, March 27th in Clearwater
Record - 13-17-3

One Sentence Summary:  Jake Arrieta looked rusty in a lengthy first inning, but the Phillies battled back as their final spring training game ended in a 5-5 tie.

What Happened:  Arrieta allowed four runs on seven hits in his three innings of work.  Aaron Altherr hit his fourth home run of the spring.

Featured Card:  Zack Coppola was one of the many minor leaguers added to the line-up card for this final game and he made the most of it with a two-run single in the fifth.

Camp Head Count:  Still at 30, and final roster moves will be made prior to Thursday afternoon.  Play ball!
