Phillies Beat Yanks in Grapefruit League Opener
Baseball is back, Spring Training style.
The Phillies beat the Yankees today at George M. Steinbrenner Field, 5-4. Cole Hamles allowed on unearned run in two innings. Vance Worley, Justin Feierabend, Brian Schlitter, Mike Zagurski and Jason Grilli also pitched.
Charlie Manuel had only a few words after the game, but really there wasn’t much to say. It was the first Grapefruit League game, which means there are 30 more days before the Phillies board a flight to Philadelphia to finish the exhibition schedule with a couple games March 29-30 against the Pirates at Citziens Bank Park.
Chase Utley is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Yankees.
