Ibanez Gets His, Pitching Gets Clocked To Start Spring

Raul Ibanez collected his first RBI of the spring in the Phillies’ 8-2 loss to the Pirates to open the exhibition season. Ibanez stroked a single through the infield in the third inning.

John Mayberry Jr. collected the second RBI with a single in the ninth. Scoring on that play was Jeremy Slayden, who had the best game with a 2-for-2 effort, including a double. The bullpen had the worst game – probable 2009 non-factors Joe Bisenius and Scott Nestor looked horrendous in their inning each. Otherwise, Jamie Moyer threw a solid two to start, Joe Blanton surrendered a run and the group of Joe Borkowski, Jake Woods and Mike Koplove pitched hitless ball in their innings.
