The Phils look for two in a row with Cole Hamels taking the hill for the Fightins. Dom Brown (3-12, 2 XBH, no Ks) gets his first start since injuring his thumb, while Scott Podsednik, Michael Martinez, and Freddy Galvis keep their Spring Training consecutive games streak alive at 12.
Notes: The Vanimal threw 4 innings of no hit ball yesterday with 8 Ks in a dominating performance. Pat Misch followed with 2 more innings of no hit ball. The Pirates did not achieve their first hit until the 7th when David Herndon gave up an infield single to Gorkys Hernandez. Hector Luna hit his second home run of the spring and continues to surprise. Luna can plan third base and, with Pete Orr, is an option should Placido Polanco miss time. Luna has played in every spring game to this point and is hitting .211 with 2 HRs and a 2B.
