In a rare Grapefruit League night game, the Phillies will look to turn their late spring luck around as they take on the Yankees in Tampa.
Wins are far from the most important thing in spring training, but for whatever they are worth, the Phillies haven't been getting them lately, having dropped four of their last five contests, including yesterday's 10-6 loss to the Tigers in which question marks exploded around Roy Halladay's horrible outing.
Tonight, it'll be Cliff Lee taking the hill for the fourth time this spring.
In his first three showings, he combined to throw 8.2 innings, allowing five runs and nine hits, three of which were homers. His control has been very solid -- he's struck out 10 and walked just two, and of the 69 pitches he's thrown an incredible 58 have been for strikes (84 percent).
Ryan Howard will get a breather tonight for the second time in three days.
Here is Charlie's starting nine:
1.) Ben Revere, CF
2.) Kevin Frandsen, DH
3.) Chase Utley, 2B
4.) John Mayberry Jr., 1B
5.) Domonic Brown, RF
6.) Darin Ruf, LF
7.) Josh Fields, 3B
8.) Freddy Galvis, SS
9.) Humberto Quintero, C
