Spring training game thread: Phillies at Braves

The Brock Stassi Hype-Train pulls into Lake Buena Vista

MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Detroit Tigers Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

After a comfortable 11-6 win over the Detroit Tigers yesterday, the Phillies continue their road trip with a game at Champion Stadium against the Atlanta Braves. Jeremy Hellickson takes the hill after a much stronger start than in his ST debut. Last week he went 3 innings, gave up 4 hits, 1 run (solo HR), walked 1 and struck out 4. He will oppose the immortal Bartolo Colon. No surprises in the lineup today, but it is great to see Brock Stassi getting a start in LF after manning 1st yesterday. ICYMI Mr. Stassi hit a grandslam yesterday, bringing his ST HR total to 3 and is 9 for 16 in eight games. Game will be on MLBN locally, with the Braves radio feed via the MLBtv.
