Kendrick Solid in Spring Debut for Phillies in 4-3 Win Over Yankees

Kyle Kendrick made his spring debut on Tuesday, allowing one run over two innings of work.

Kendrick's sole blemish was a two-out RBI double surrendered to Mark Texeira in the first inning.

"It was nice to get out there," Kendrick said. "I was excited, a little amped in the first. The body felt good and I was throwing mostly strikes.

On the Mound: Zach Miner surrendered two runs on three hits in two innings of work ... Cesar Jimenez and Chad Durbin each picked up a scoreless inning in relief ...  and Jeremy Horst picked up the save.

At the Plate:  Dominic Brown hit a solo shot in the seventh ... Tommy Joseph hit a two-run homer in the seventh ... Kevin Frandsen added an RBI double.

Up Next:  The Phillies travel to Hammond Stadium to take on the Twins Wednesday ... The Phillies will send lefty John Lannan to the mound ... The Twins will counter with Kevin Correia.
