• The Phillies' offense continues to struggle through 14 Grapefruit League games, hitting just .186. The Phillies (2-10-2) picked up just two hits in Tuesday's 9-1 loss to the Braves at Champion Stadium. Kevin Frandsen broke up a no-hitter with a single against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel in the seventh, marking the fifth time in the last seven games Philadelphia has been no-hit through at least three innings.
"In some regards, it's not that concerning," Sandberg said of his starters' early-inning struggles. "In other regards, as far as Spring Training games, it sets a tough tone for the rest of the game. I don't remember the last time that we've scored in the first three or four innings."
