The Phillies had an offensive outburst on Sunday, getting 13 runs on 14 hits. 

With the Phillies trailing 4-2 in the bottom of the fourth, Domonic Brown hit a solo shot to right field off of Blue Jays' lefty, Aaron Loup, to get the Phillies to within a run, 4-3.

Again, with the Phillies behind  4-3 in the bottom of the fifth, Ryan Howard took the Blue Jays,' Brett Cecil, deep on a three-run shot to go ahead for good, 6-4.

On the Mound:  Aaron Cook struggled, giving up four runs, three earned, and seven hits in four innings of work ...  Justin De Fratus picked up the win in relief while throwing one scoreless inning ...  and Joe Savery prevented any comeback attempt by striking out three and walking one in 1 2/3 innings.

At the Plate:  Yuniesky Betancourt went 2-5, and drove in three ...  Kevin Frandsen went 2-4, scoring four times, and drove in one ...  and Ender Inciarte started Sunday in center field, going 2-3 and scoring twice.

Up Next:  The Phillies will travel to McKechnie Field in Bradenton, Florida to take on the Pirates.  Left-hander John Lannan will make his second spring start on Monday.
