Phils Tie, Lose In Split Squad Games

The Phillies split up Sunday, playing to a tie in Clearwater against the Orioles and losing in Lakeland to the Tigers. Roy Halladay got the start in Clearwater, and he pitched a solid 6.1 innings, giving up two runs and striking out nine. Antonio Bastardo relieved him in the seventh and made quick work of the Baltimore hitters with two strikeouts. Jose Contreras pitched the eighth, and gave up a run on a two out, RBI double by Trent Mummey and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a scoreless ninth.

On the offensive side of things, Freddy Galvis continued his hot streak as he went 3-4 with a run scored. Jim Thome hit a RBI double, and Carlos Ruiz had another multi-hit game, going 2-4.

In Lakeland, the Phils had faced Justin Verlander, although they did get two runs off of him. Shane Victorino, Ty Wigginton, and Tuffy Gosewisch hit doubles, while Cody Overbeck hit a home run. Juan Pierre was able to tally two knocks, while his competition Scott Podsednik wen’t 0-4.

On the mound, Scott Elarton got the start, going four innings while giving up a run on just two hits. David Herndon gave up a run over two innings, and Michael Stutes gave up a run in his only inning. Joe Savery gave up a three run home run in the seventh to Tyler Collins, meaning that every Phillies pitcher in the game gave up at least one run.

The Phils welcome the Red Sox to Bright House Field tomorrow at 1:00 PM in what will be the final week of Spring Training action.

    I’m sorry, not even a mention of the fact that Thome played first base in a spring training game?
