The Phillies ride a spring-high two-game winning streak into today’s contest, which pits Cole Hamels and the Phils against Matt Garza and Rays. Game time is 1:05 p.m. [Live Boxscore]
After yesterday’s 6-4 win, there are signs the 7-12-1 Phils are flipping the switch, but one guy who hasn't turned it on is outfielder Geoff Jenkins, who's hitting just .136 (6-44) with only 1 RBI for his new team. ... This will be Hamels’ third Grapefruit League start, and it probably wouldn’t hurt to see some positive results as he’s running out of chances to work out the kinks before it counts for real. ... Also on the docket, Travis Blackley and Fabio Castro will see action this afternoon, trying to earn points toward making the roster. Blackley last pitched on Sunday, so they’re definitely giving him a hard look. Ryan Madson is also scheduled.
