Rollins, Mayberry back solid outing for Halladay
Duo combines for five RBIs; Doc allows one run, three hits, fans three in 2 1/3
TAMPA, Fla. -- Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run double and John Mayberry Jr. drove in three runs on Friday, leading the Phillies to a 10-5 Grapefruit League victory over the Yankees at George M. Steinbrenner Field.
Philadelphia touched up Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda for four runs -- one earned -- in 1 2/3 innings of work. Kuroda scattered three hits in his first start of the spring, walking one and striking out two.
"Early in the Spring Training [game], there were a few pitches that were good and a few pitches that were not," Kuroda said through an interpreter. "The main thing was to make sure that I throw strikes, to put the ball in the zone, and to work on my breaking balls, which are not there yet."
Rollins scored in the first, when first baseman Kyle Roller booted a Chase Utley grounder for an error, and Ryan Howard knocked home Ben Revere with the second run of the inning on a double-play ball.
A Kevin Youkilis error at third base kept the second inning alive for Rollins' two-run double, chasing Kuroda. Mayberry hit a two-run single off Joba Chamberlain in the third inning.
Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay held the Yankees to one run on three hits over 2 1/3 innings in his second start of the spring. He walked one and struck out three.
Francisco Cervelli hit a third-inning double off Halladay, who then exited, and Robinson Cano cashed the run in with an RBI single off reliever Cesar Jimenez.
Addison Maruszak touched Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon for a two-run single in the fifth inning. Ronnier Mustelier added a solo home run for the Yankees in the sixth, and Melky Mesa clubbed a solo shot in the seventh, his second of the spring.
The Phillies put together a four-run seventh inning, capped off by Freddy Galvis' RBI single.
The Yankees committed four errors in the contest.
"I think we're capable of fielding it better," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "We had four errors today, which led to a lot of runs for them. There's a lot of young kids out there, and what we probably need to do is get them to relax a little bit."
Up next for the Phillies: Left-hander Cliff Lee will make his second start of the spring Saturday afternoon against former NL East foe R.A. Dickey (0-1, 9.00 ERA) and the Blue Jays at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium in Dunedin, Fla., live on MLB.TV at 1:05 p.m. ET. Lee was nearly perfect in his Grapefruit League debut, walking one batter and striking out two in two scoreless innings. He'll be followed on the mound by right-handers Tyler Cloyd, Mike Stutes and Chad Durbin.
