Grapefruit Game 4 - 2018 Topps Now Offseaon #OS55 Jean Segura

Phillies 12, Tigers 7
Spring Training Game 4 - Monday Afternoon, February 25th in Clearwater
Record - 3-1

One Sentence Summary:  The Phillies out-hit the Tigers in this 12-7 win.

What It Means:  It's early, but it's nice to see the offense hitting the ball even if all but one of their 13 hits were singles.

What Happened:  The Phillies had a big fifth inning, scoring 7 runs.  Five straight singles from Jean Segura, Andrew McCutchen, Rhys Hoskins, J.T. Realmuto and Maikel Franco started the big rally with Shane Robinson adding a two-run single to cap it.  Franco enjoyed a four-RBI day.

JoJo Romero got the start and allowed a run in his two innings of work.  James Pazos worked a scoreless top of the fifth to pick up the win.

Featured Card:  This is Segura's first official Phillies card, even though he's pictured in a Mariners uniform.  Only 175 of these Topps Now Offseason cards for Segura were produced.

Camp Head Count:  61.  I guess Sean Rodriguez's knee isn't as bad as everyone thought as he pinch-hit in this game.
