Grapefruiting 2009: Phils Hold Astros For 5-2 Win

It was a solid game for many Phillies, as they derailed the Astros, 5-2.

Carlos Carrasco started with a three-inning, four-strikeout performance, allowing a run on four hits and two walks. Andrew Carpenter fared even better, turning in a four-inning, four-strikeout performance with just an earned run and three hits allowed. Dave Borkowski and Mike Koplove each handed in a scoreless inning.

Offensively, Pablo Ozuna was a star, going 3-for-4 with an RBI in the leadoff hole. Jayson Werth smashed his first home run of the spring, and Greg Dobbs added an RBI double. Matt Stairs — also fighting for a 25-man roster spot, went 2-for-3.

Tomorrow the Phils host the Cardinals at Bright House Networks Field. We’ll have live Twitter updates throughout the day.
