Bradenton

Two games tomorrow.

Well, sort of.  We have 31 pitchers in camp and the Pirates have 38.  So, the two clubs will play a 9:30 a.m. “B” game in Bradenton and then a 1:05 p.m. game in the afternoon.  Bus time for the 44 minute trip south for the “B” game players is 7:45 a.m.; the other bus is 9:30 a.m.

Brett Myers and J. C. Romero will be in the early game.  J. D. Durbin, Shane Youman, J. A. Happ and Joe Bisenius are listed for the afternoon game.  We all know Myers and Romero are on the staff but the afternoon crew needs to face the Pirates’ “A” lineup.

Bowling Buddies
A two-team bowling challenge was held last night with Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Brett Myers, hitting coach Milt Thompson, non-roster invitee Brandon Watson, former Phillie Robert Person, third base coach Steve Smith, minor league catcher Tim Gradoville and Shane Victorino.

The last two NL MVPs (Howard/Rollins) and the last two Phillies to have 7 RBI in a game (Howard/Person).

Sold Out
The Phillies return to Bright House Field on Saturday, hosting the Yankees at 1:05 p.m. (CW Philly 57 TV game).

But, 500 tickets to the outfield berm area will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning at the ticket office windows.

Elsewhere
Brad Lidge was in uniform again and played long toss in the morning . . . Kris Benson faced hitters for the first time in batting practice and threw very well.
