On this lovely Saturday afternoon, the Phillies and Rays went at it at Bright House Networks Field. Kyle Kendrick took the mound for the Phils, but there was also a split-squad game played against the Pirates in Bradenton in which Vance Worley started.
Some notes: Charlie Manuel received 2 standing ovation's for picking up foul balls, and Ryan Madson struck out 6 batters in 2 innings pitched. There's the excitement of the game.
Final score in Clearwater: Rays 6, Phillies 2.
Final score in Bradenton: Phillies 11, Pirates 4.
Tomorrow, the Phillies will play the Twins at the Lee County Sports Complex in Fort Myers.
