Tuesday's Minor League Camp Update

Action continued at the minor league complex on Tuesday. Pitcher Derek Griffith was dazzling in his outing for the High-A team. There were other highlights throughout the day and we've got them detailed in our minor league camp update.

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 Devil Rays 7-6 on Tuesday to move to 2-4 this spring.

Allen Davis gave up three earned runs over four innings, while Nick Mattioni and Travis Minix each surrendered one earned run in two innings of work each. Ryan Cameron gave up a walk in the ninth, but kept Tampa Bay off the board.

Michael Bourn stole a base, tripled and drove in three runs.

Team 2: AA
The AA squad pounded on the Devil Rays 8-2 and are now 3-3 on the season. It didn't hurt that the D' Rays made five errors in the game.

Scott Mathieson struck out seven over four innings of work, allowing one earned run. Mathieson's velocity was generally in the low-90s throughout his 64 pitch outing.

Matt Edwards homered and drove in three runs while Zach Norman doubled and drove in three runs for the AA squad.

Team 3: A
The High-A squad edged Tampa Bay 2-1 and are now 3-2-1 on the season.

Tampa Bay's only run was unearned as five Phillies pitchers combined to allow just two hits. Derek Griffith threw five shutout innings, giving up two hits and two walks while striking out four. Ben King, Ronald Hill, Nate Johnson and Brett Harker needed just 15 pitches to cover the final four innings of the game.

Phillip Quevas had two hits, including a homerun for the Phillies.

Team 4: A
The low-A team played to a 2-2 tie with the Devil Rays and are now 3-2-1 this spring.

Kyle Kendrick gave up two runs over four innings of work. Mike Zagurski, Alex McEnaney and Pete Henyan shut out the Devil Rays over the final five innings, giving up just two hits. Phillies pitchers didn't issue a walk on the day, but struck out eight.

Mike Durant and Jeremy Slayden each doubled for the Phillies squad.
