The Phillies offense came alive in an 8-3 win over the Yankees at Bright House Field.
Eric Bruntlett, an offensive star this spring training, went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. Two of his hits were doubles as he raised his Grapefruit League average to .340. Raul Ibanez went 3-for-3 with an RBI, while both Matt Stairs and Miguel Cairo belted two-run home runs. Cairo has emerged as a favorite for the final roster spot on the major league club.
JA Happ pitched OK in his five innings. He allowed one earned run (two total) on five hits and three walks. He also struck out three. Clay Condrey, Brad Lidge and Scott Eyre each pitched scoreless frames (as a whole the Phils set bullpen has been sparkling this spring) while Mike Koplove dangled a run in the ninth.
