Intrasquad Game

The Reds traditionally start off the spring training schedule with an intrasquad scrimmage. Today, they played home vs. vistors...with some very loose rules.

Andy Phillips started out DHing in the last spot in the lineup of the Visiting Reds. But in the second inning, he switched to the other team, becoming the second baseman of the Home Reds and batting cleanup.

Andy had a pretty good day. He went 2 for 3 (a flyout and two singles). Or maybe that should be 0 for 1 and 2 for 2. The Home Reds won, 8-2.

Rice alum Paul Janish (SoftJ, as Trent calls him) had a good day, too. He had a single and a walk, and made three plays on defense that impressed the reporters and manager Dusty Baker.

John Fay's blog has the lineups and the play by play.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune has a writeup of the game.

Maybe 2B makes him hit better. He played 2B most of the time while in Triple-A last year (while Shelley played 1B).
