Scott Podsednik ended the game with a two-out solo homer in the ninth inning. He went 2-for-2. Podsednik and Juan Pierre are competing for a roster spot. Podsednik is hitting .362 this spring while Pierre is batting .289. "We'll make the decision," Manuel said. "Podsednik hits the ball a little bit harder. He gives you more juice. Pierre is on base more. He has a high on-base percentage. Both of them hit lefties OK."
Lee allowed three hits, struck out three and walked one. The left-hander also hit for the first time this spring and doubled in his final at-bat. The 33-year-old Lee will make one more spring start on Sunday before taking the ball in the second game of the regular season on April 7 in Pittsburgh.
"I'm pretty happy with where everything is right now," Lee said. "One more start and then the regular season, so it's time to get after it."
NOTES: The Phillies re-assigned RHPs Scott Elarton and Brian Sanches to minor league camp. Additionally, they optioned LHP Jake Diekman to minor league camp. The 25-year-old Diekman didn't allow an earned run in five spring appearances, striking out nine while walking one in five innings... Philadelphia reliever Justin De Fratus threw a bullpen session for the first time this spring. De Fratus complained of elbow soreness when camp began last month. He'll throw again on Friday.
