CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Freddy Galvis homered and drove in three runs to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the Tampa Bay Rays 10-1 Tuesday.

Galvis, who hadn’t played an inning in the outfield in six professional seasons, made his first start of spring training in left field, a position where the Phillies do not have a set opening-day starter. The 23-year-old Galvis, usually a shortstop, went 2 for 4 with two runs scored.

Galvis hit a two-run homer off Robert Hernandez with one out in the fifth inning, his third of spring training, and added an RBI single against Hernandez during a five-run sixth. Hernandez allowed nine runs and 11 hits in six innings.

Domonic Brown went 3 for 4 with two doubles, and Ryan Howard and Humberto Quintero had two hits apiece.
