Opening Day 2014 was a bit of anomaly: it was the first time the team ever began a season in an American League ballpark. They scored 14 runs, the most since 1900. Despite Cliff Lee’s struggles, the Phillies were able to hang on and beat the Texas Rangers in Arlington. Jimmy Rollins notched his 200th career home run, a grand slam in the second inning to give the Phillies a 6-0 lead.
