In the top of the second, the Phils took the lead as Jeff Larish hits a one-out, two-run double, knocking in Ben Francisco, who had earlier got on base with a single, then moved up to second base on a Stolmy Pimentel’s balk, then moved on to third on a John Mayberry, Jr., single, and Mayberry, Jr., who had earlier singled.

But, Perez would then get out of the inning, as he would first get pinch hitter Daniel Nava to foul out to the thrid baseman for the second out, before ending the game by striking out Josh Reddick on three pitches.

Cole Hamels gets the win (1-0, 0.00 ERA) as he pitches four shut out innings, giving up just one hit, while striking out three and walking one.

Stolmy Pimentel took the lost (0-1, 9.00) as he pitches two innings, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk, while striking out one. Dan Wheeler, Andrew Miller, Bobby Jenks, Jason Rice, Rich Hill, Michael Bowden and Blake Maxwell each pitch a scoreless inning, as they combine to give up four hits (Wheeler (2), Miller (1), Jenks (1)) and three walks (Rice (1), Bowden (2)), while combining for six strike outs (Miller (1), Rice (2), Hill (1), Bowden (1), Maxwell (1)). Phils pitching had an easy time, as the BoSox hitters were very aggressive at the plate, hitting into a lot of one pitch outs.

The Phils had seven hits in the game, with Ben Francisco leading the team with two hits, both singles, as he increases his spring training batting average to .375, as he scores one of the two Phils’ runs. Shane Victorino follows with a double, Ross Gload, with a single, John Mayberry, Jr., also with a single, as he scores the other Phil run, Jeff Larish, who hit a two-run double, and Dane Sardinha, who had a single. Dom Brown is still struggling at the plate, as he went 0 for 3, with a walk, as he struck out once.

The first game of spring training is done…

And the Phils have defeated the Florida State Seminoles by the score of 8-0, after adding a pair of two runs in both the sixth and the seventh innings, after taking a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first. FSU had a total of four hits and no errors, as they scored no runs, while the Phils scored eight runs on eleven hits, with no home runs, while committing two errors, which the Seminoles were obviously unable to capitalize on.

The Phils winning pitcher is Drew Naylor, who’s spring training record is presently 1-0 with an 0.00 ERA, while the Seminoles losing pitcher is Tyler Everett, who’s record is now 0-0 with a 36.00 ERA.
