2013 Spring Training

Phils Smash Five Homers, Bury O’s 13-4

Chase Utley went deep twice, while Yuniesky Betancourt, Domonic Brown, and Ryan Howard chipped in with a long ball of their own as the Phillies move to 13-13 in Grapefruit League action with a 13-4 win.

The Good

The Phillies took advantage of this advantageous match-up against Chen in a big way with six extra base hits, five of which were home runs. Every starter had a hit in today’s game. Antonio Bastardo threw a scoreless inning.

The Interesting

Ender Inciarte once again came in as a late-inning, defensive replacement and raised his Spring average to .273 with a base hit. Freddy Galvis had a nice play in right field. Yes, Galvis saw the field in right.

The Areas of Opportunity

On a day where Roy Halladay wasn’t quite what we thought he’d be against a minor league squad, Aaron Cook was good but not great against a playoff team who played their entire starting nine against him. In 4 2/3 IP, he had one strikeout, no walks, and gave up two earned.

The Phillies Spring schedule continues tomorrow against the Red Sox at Bright House Field. Cliff Lee, Mike Stutes, Jeremy Horst, and Jonathan Papelbon are scheduled to pitch.
