DUNEDIN, Fl. — With one week separating the Phillies from the start of the 2017 regular season, it offers one last chance to tune up ahead of Opening Day. Three Phillies used Monday night's game to show they were warming up.

Vince Velasquez threw five solid innings on the mound while Tommy Joseph and Freddy Galvis each had multi-hit games and drove in two runs each in a 7-1 win for the Phillies over the Blue Jays.
