Red Sox Held To One Hit In Loss To Phillies
Hamels pitches Phillies over Red Sox 2-0
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) – Cole Hamels pitched one-hit ball over
four innings, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Boston Red Sox
2-0 Thursday in a spring-training matchup of teams favored to reach
the World Series.
Hamels, the winner, struck out three and walked one, throwing 29
of 50 pitches for strikes.
Loser Stolmy Pimentel, starting because Josh Beckett was hit on
the head while shagging flies during batting practice Monday, gave
up two runs, three hits, a walk and a balk in two innings.
Reliever Bobby Jenks, in his first season with the Red Sox, made
his spring training debut. He gave up a leadoff double to Shane
Victorino in the fifth.
