The Phillies minor league squads now have a combined spring season record of 5-6-1 after Saturday's action. Lou Marson launched a two-run homerun and Brad Harman also had a big day at the plate in the minors.
Teams at the minor league complex are divided in to AAA, AA and A teams, but players on those teams won't necessarily be playing at that level. For instance, Mike Costanzo is slated to start the season at Clearwater, but is playing for the AA team in camp.
Team 1: AAA
The AAA squad beat the Yankees AAA squad 6-4 on Saturday for their first win of the spring season.
Seung-Hak Lee, who is coming off an injury plagued season, threw two perfect innings. Nick Mattioni, who came over to the Phillies from the New York Mets organization, finished off the game with a perfect ninth inning.
Tim Moss and Carlos Leon each homered for the AAA squad.
Team 2: AA
The AA squad lost to the Devil Rays AA squad 6-5 and is now 1-2 this spring.
C.J. Woodrow threw three shutout innings, striking out two and Matt Sweeney added a perfect inning. Sweeney retired the three hitters he faced on just nine pitches.
Brad Harman had a homerun and two doubles.
Team 3: A
The High-A squad finished their game with the Yankees in a 4-4 tie.
Mike Dzurilla and Aaron Cheesman each had two hits. Alex Gonzalez skipped the Phillies game against the Pirates to play left field for the AA team, in his quest to learn the position.
Team 4: A
The Low-A squad beat the Devil Rays 6-5 and are now 2-1 on the season.
Pete Henyan threw 2 1/3 shutout innings and Aaron Rawl added one scoreless inning.
