2012 Spring Training

Phillies Win Exhibition Opener Over FSU, 6-1

If you had Hector Luna hitting the first home run of the spring for the Phillies, then you’ve won something. The well-traveled infielder slapped a 2-run jack in the Phillies 6-1 win over Florida State University.

During the game, Domonic Brown went 0-for-1, but was hit by a pitch on the same hand he broke during Spring Training last year. Brown says it’s fine. He stayed in the game a while longer and even stole a bases, so everything sounds good there.

Catcher Erik Kratz knocked in a run, as did prospect Tyson Gillies. The speedy outfielder went 1-for-2 with two runs scored. He also stole a base.

Austin Hyatt got the start and fanned three in two innings, looking sharp. Lefty Jake Diekman also looked good, striking out two and walking one.

Guys like Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, and Hunter Pence got in and out with a couple of plate appearances. Jim Thome walked and struck out in two PA’s.

Outfielder Scott Podsednik, who is vying for that 25th man spot, singled home a run.

Next up, the Grapefruit League opener on Saturday against the Yankees.
