Very Late Recap: Twins 6, Phillies 4

March 14, 2012; Clearwater, FL, USA; Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire (35) talks with first baseman Chris Parmelee (27), left fielder Josh Willingham (16) and first baseman Justin Morneau (33) in the dugout against the Philadelphia Phillies at Bright House Networks Field.

The Twins chased Roy Halladay out of the game today in the third inning. Sure, it's only a spring training game, but still...that's pretty cool. Josh Willingham and Chris Parmelee both stepped up with home runs today, and Span went 3-for-4, which is very encouraging (I'm ignoring the caught stealing...this time). Overall, a good game for the Twins today at Bright House Field.

Full recap information after the jump...

So by the third inning, the Twins had 7 hits against Halladay, 2 of them being home runs. Halladay had walked one, struck out three, and had 5 ER. Surprising, but it was definitely nice to see some offensive production against Doc. Josh Willingham took Halladay deep in the first, and then Chris Parmelee hit a three-run homer in the third to give the Twins the lead.

As for the Twins pitching, Jason Marquis pitched 4 innings. He gave up 8 hits and 2 walks, struck out one, and had 4 earned runs on the day. Jeff Manship, Jeff Gray, Samuel Deduno, Casey Fien, and Lester Oliveros also pitched for Minnesota today, giving up a collective 2 hits, 1 walk, and 0 earned runs. Not too shabby.

Studs
-Josh Willingam (2-for-3, HR, 2 runs)
-Denard Span (3-for-4, 1 run)
-Chris Parmelee (2-for-3, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 run)

Duds
-Justin Morneau (0-for-5, 2 SO)
-Ben Revere (0-for-3, 3 LOB)

Overall, good game for the Twins. Soon we'll have real, meaningful baseball to talk about!
