The Phillies' offense scrounged up just six hits in a 5-3 loss to the Blue Jays. Cliff Lee looked good, though.
Byrd's 2-for-3 night raised his average to .385, and in the small sample size of spring training, he's one of only three players thus far with 10 or more at-bats whose average is above .214. Ben Revere (.333) and Darin Ruf (.308) are the others.
Is it time to worry that Chase Utley, Domonic Brown, Bobby Abreu, Ryan Howard and Cody Asche are hitting a combined .113 (6 for 53)? It likely wouldn't be if it weren't for the Phillies' well-known offensive woes...
Cliff Lee, on the opposite end of the spectrum, was impressive in three innings, allowing just one run on three hits and walking none.
In his first outing, Lee gave up one run and two hits in two innings and similarly walked none.
He might even be ready for opening day, which he's likely to start for the first time since 2009 with the Indians.
"I think so," Lee said, per Jim Salisbury on CSNPhilly.com. "I don't think I could throw the whole game. But I think I could throw six or seven innings pretty -- well, not easily, but physically I think I'd be able to do it."
