CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer and Jonathan Papelbon pitched a perfect inning in his Philadelphia debut before the New York Yankees rallied for an 8-5 victory over the Phillies Saturday.

Pence connected off New York right-hander Ivan Nova. Kevin Frandsen also homered for the Phillies.

New Phillies reliever Chad Qualls gave up a two-run homer to Cole Garner in a three-run seventh.
Yankees All-Star Curtis Granderson also homered for New York.

Cole Hamels gave up a run on two doubles in the first inning, but was sharp in a scoreless second.
Nova allowed two runs in the first before retiring five of his final six batters.

Papelbon pitched a 1-2-3 fifth. He left the Boston Red Sox as a free agent, signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Phillies.
