Spring Training play has finally concluded for the Phillies, who head back home today.
Finishing with a 12-16 record (who’s really keeping track anyway?), the Phils tied with division rival Atlanta, 7-7, today.
Cliff Lee got the start, allowing a run on five hits and a walk while striking out one in four innings.
Joe Savery pitched two innings of one-run ball, including loading the bases in the 5th and getting out without any harm done.
Carlos Ruiz finished up his spring hitting .500 (22-44) with seven doubles, two homers, nine RBIs and striking out only once. He was 1-for-3 on the day.
The Phils will host the Pirates for a two-game “On Deck Series” before they head out to Pittsburgh for their regular season Opening Day series.
