2016 Spring Training, March 18th

The Phillies lost their St. Patrick’s Day game against the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-1.  But the offense returned Friday with a 15-12 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The Phillies fell behind 5-0, scored 9 runs in the 4th inning, 6 more in the 5th , and allowed 7 runs over the final 3 innings.  Maikel Franco hit his 7th HR, Peter Bourjos hit his 1st, Ryan Howard blasted his second, a grand slam, over the batter’s eye in center, and Cameron Rupp hit his third.  The Phillies opted to play without a DH and starter Charlie Morton went 0-2 with an RBI and a run scored.  Luis Garcia struck out 3 in 1.1 IP.  The Pirates only brought 2 starters – RF Polanco and C Cervelli.  Freese made the trip as a DH.
