Pirates 8, Phillies 2

There wasn't much to take out of this one, other than right fielder Geoff Jenkins predicted afterward that Jamie Moyer would pitch until he was 110.

There wasn't much to take out of this one, other than right fielder Geoff Jenkins predicted afterward that Jamie Moyer would pitch until he was 110.

The veteran lefthander started the Grapefruit League opener and threw two scoreless innings, though results are completely meaningless at this point. Moyer threw mostly fastballs, working on his command.

Another notable: Raul Ibanez had his first spring training RBI as a Phillie, driving in Jimmy Rollins in the third inning.

Joe Blanton gave up a run on two hits in his inning of work. Joe Bisenius gave up four earned runs and Scott Nestor followed by giving up three earned runs.

South Philly product Mike Koplove pitched a scoreless eighth with two strikeouts.

John Mayberry drove in the Phillies' other run.

More later.
