Grapefruit Wrap: Phillies 2, Braves 2

Philly.com recap
Box score

ONE UP
Bobby Abreu reached base two more times and scored a run. He is just 2 for 10 at the plate but has a .444 on-base percentage because of five walks and one hit-by-pitch in 18 plate appearances. Abreu turns 40 next week. 

ONE DOWN
The game ended in a tie because pitcher Brad Lincoln botched a rundown in the ninth inning. He tagged out Jose Constanza between third base and home, but threw the ball into left field when he attempted to nab Matt Lipka at third. "That was a different kind of play," Ryne Sandberg said.
