Aumont Struggles in 13-6 Win

As seen on Phillies Nation.

The Phillies cruised to a 13-6 victory in their exhibition game against Florida State University.

In the process, Phillippe Aumont, the team’s number one pitching prospect, struggled. Aumont, who was acquired in the Cliff Lee trade, surrendered five runs in 2/3 of inning. But let’s not call it a career for him just yet. Aumont admitted feeling pressure from the trade, and said he wanted to make a good first impression. He’s only 21 and it was his very first outing. Heck, Tim Lincecum allowed three runs during an inning of work today.

The Phillies did receive stellar performances from J.A Happ (2 IP, 0 R), Drew Naylor (2 IP, 4 SO), and Joe Savery (1 IP, 2 SO). Domonic Brown also drove in a run.

No sweat. He'll be okay. Simply trying to work on mechanics...

Boy, it's great to have baseball back.
