The bats came alive in game No. 4. Ryan Howard knocked an opposite field home run, with John Mayberry Jr., Miguel Cairo and Ronny Paulino adding blasts. Howard, Mayberry and Cairo each had two hits, and Eric Bruntlett, Jason Donald, Shane Victorino and Andy Tracy added RBI hits.
Kyle Kendrick pitched a somewhat Kendrickian 2.2 innings, yielding four hits and a run (off a home run), but wiggling out of jams with help from an improved changeup. Relief was much better than previously, with prospect Drew Naylor flashing some stuff, Mike Koplove and Clay Condrey each turning in scoreless frames and Scott Eyre getting work in giving up a run. Jake Woods surrendered two late runs.
Now 1-3, the Phillies will next play in Lake Buena Vista against the Braves. That is at 1 p.m. tomorrow.
