Phillies Spring Training 2012: Freddy Galvis Drives In Winning Run Over Pirates

The Philadelphia Phillies won the first of two exhibition games against the Pittsburgh Pirates before the two teams face off for real on Opening Day on Thursday. Freddy Galvis hit an RBI triple in the seventh inning to put the Phillies up 4-3 for good.

The Phillies had to juggle the top of their lineup around with Chase Utley and Ryan Howard out. Jimmy Rollins was moved into the No. 3 slot, hitting a sacrifice fly in the first inning and a line drive RBI double in the third. Juan Pierre took over leadoff duties and did well, scoring two runs.

Joe Blanton started for Philly, allowing two runs and and three hits in 4 2/3 innings. The Phillies took a 3-0 lead into the fourth inning, but Andrew McCutchen hit a solo run in the sixth to tie the game at 3 runs apiece.
