Carpenter Can't Escape In 10-3 Loss

This time Andrew Carpenter looked terrible as the Phillies dropped a 10-3 game to the Reds Friday in Sarasota.

Carpenter couldn’t record an out. His line: 0 IP, 3 H, 3 BB, 4 ER. That won’t help you make an impression in camp. After Carpenter, things remained tortured: Antonio Bastardo pitched a fine two innings, letting in an inherited run. JC Romero also surrendered a run while walking three in his first work in 2009. The other major blunder was Sergio Escalona, who did himself no favors with a four-run outing in an inning and a third. Ryan Madson had a nice first outing, while Joe Borkowski continued to show promise at the back end.

Raul Ibanez continues to have a strong spring, knocking an RBI double in the first inning. That scored Shane Victorino, who went 2-for-3 with two doubles the day he was elected to the U.S. World Baseball Classic team. Pablo Ozuna made the most of his first game, notching two hits, including a home run.

Tomorrow the Phillies host a rematch of the 2008 World Series when the Devil Rays … and Pat Burrell … come to town.

    Don’t forget about the On Deck series at CBP in April. I have tickets for the fourth and I plan to give him a lusty standing “O”. Since its an exhibition game, I hope Burrell jacks three over the left field wall. I’ll cheer the hell out of him, than maybe I’ll boo the hell out of him.
