Carrasco, Happ Shine In 6-2 Loss

Carlos Carrasco and JA Happ kicked off the Fight For Fifth with gusto Thursday. The rest of the Phillies, however? No gusto.

The Phillies lost 6-2 to the Blue Jays. The story was Carrasco and Happ, who each pitched scoreless two-inning outings. Carrasco yielded no hits and struck out three; Happ struck out one and surrendered a hit.

Elsewhere, the Phillies struggled again both on the mound and at the plate. Justin Lehr gave up back-to-back home runs, and Blaine Neal let up four of his own. Gary Majewski, however, turned in a solid two innings of work, striking out two and surrendering no hits. Jimmy Rollins drove in Jason Ellison with a single in the third inning; Greg Dobbs drove in John Mayberry Jr. with a single in the sixth. The Phillies are now 0-2 on the spring and will play the Reds tomorrow in Sarasota. Andrew Carpenter and the three setup relievers are scheduled to pitch, among others.
