Post Game Notebook, Phillies 6, Florida State 1

Hyped by on February 29, 2012 Website:

Hector Luna's two-run home run in the seventh inning helped the Phillies pull away from Florida State in Wednesday's spring exhibition in Clearwater. The Phillies defeated one the NCAA's top baseball teams by the score of 6-1 after being held scoreless by Seminoles pitching through five innings.

Tyson Gillies scored the first run of the game when Scott Podsednik's infield single in the sixth inning gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead. The lead would be short-lived when J.C. Ramirez ran in to some trouble in the top of the seventh inning and Florida State scored their first run. Some poor control, including a wild pitch, was the story of the inning for Ramirez, but one run was all he allowed. Pete Orr, who bobbled a grounder to allow Florida State to make some noise, scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the seventh inning to make amends. The Phillies continued to tack on some runs, benefiting from a balk against Florida State to force in a run before Luna's blast over the wall.

Here are some other notes from the exhibition win...
