Phillies Kick Off Exhibition Schedule with Florida St. – Phillies Nation

Phillies Kick Off Exhibition Schedule with Florida St.

In what has become a right of passage in Spring Training, the Phillies will start their exhibition season with a visit from the Florida State Seminoles baseball team today at 1:05 pm.

Here is today’s starting lineup for the Phillies:

  1. Shane Victorino CF
  2. Placido Polanco 3B
  3. Raul Ibanez DH
  4. Ryan Howard 1B
  5. Ben Francisco LF
  6. Domonic Brown RF
  7. Carlos Ruiz C
  8. Pete Orr 2B
  9. Wilson Valdez SS

The starters will likely get a couple of hacks and then make way for some of the backups. Chase Utley is fine, Charlie Manuel will give him a few days off because of body soreness, according to Dave Murphy of the Daily News. Manuel told the media Utley had been doing some heavy lifting and a lot of extra work in the field. Jimmy Rollins is at a White House function today celebrating Motown. Not a bad day off for J-Roll.

Here is today’s pitching schedule:

Thursday vs. Florida State

  • SP: RHP Drew Naylor
  • LHP Juan Perez
  • RHP Mike Stutes
  • RHP Mike Schwimer
  • RHP Justin DeFratus
  • RHP Scott Mathieson

    I can’t find Gameday (or At Bat), and Gameday Audio doesn’t seem to be available, but my Harry Kalas program is working! (albeit a bit delayed). We’re in the bottom of the first, and Polanco got the Phils’ first hit of the season. Ibanez also got a hit. We’re off to a good start this year!

    @Pat: You can also get a play-by-play in XML format that’s not too terribly hard to read:
    The main trick is figuring out which team is at bat!
    Still 4-0 Phils, going into the top of the 4th.
