Spring Training: Phils get blanked by the Red Sox, 3-0.

Yesterday afternoon, the Phillies were defeated by the Red Sox, as the offense was thrown goose eggs all afternoon, losing 3-0.

Brett Myers, the most likely opening night starter, if the Phils decide to give Cole Hamels extra time to get ready for the season, started the game for the Phils. Myers pitched five innings, giving up two runs in the first on a two-run home run by Mike Lowell, before settling down and blanking the BoSox for the next four innings. He would give up five hits along with the two runs, as he walked five batters (seems like bad Brett wanted to come out yesterday) and a strike out. Robert Mosebach followed him, pitching a shut out inning, giving up only two hits. Chad Durbin pitched next, having a shut out inning, giving up no hits, as he walked one, who was later wiped out in a double play and struck out one. Ryan Madson pitched an inning, giving up a run on two hits, one of them being as solo home run to Chris Carter, as he struck out two batters. Myers took the lost, with his spring training record now being 1-1 with a ERA of 2.63.

The Phillies would only get six hits in the game. Jayson Werth, Raul Ibanez, Ryan Howard, John Mayberry, Jr., Pablo Ozuna and Carlos Ruiz would each get a hit, with Ibanez and Ruiz’s hits being doubles. None of the batters were able to knock in a run.

In other Phillies news, Kyle Kendrick, as I’d expected, was sent down to the minors camp this morning. He will more than likely start the season pitching for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Hopefully, he’ll come back with a better demeaner and a new pitch or two.

The Phils are presently playing the New York Yankees at Bright House Field in Clearwater.

We all are. Oh, by the way, it seems the Phils get at least one more chance at the BoSox before spring training is over. Maybe the outcome will be different. ;)
