Lee Finally Makes Debut, Phillies Beat Orioles 7-5

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — Derrek Lee went hitless with a walk in his abbreviated debut with the Baltimore Orioles, who lost 7-5 to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.

Signed as a free agent during the offseason, Lee had been sidelined this spring with soreness in his right wrist. He batted third and went 0 for 1 with a run scored against Cole Hamels.

Lee came to the plate in the bottom of the first with two runners on base and no outs. He drew a walk after falling behind 0-2 in the count, and came around to score on Randy Winn’s groundball.

Lee fanned in the second inning on another full count after Hamels got two quick strikes. Jake Fox pinch-hit for Lee in the fourth.

Hamels gave up five runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. He’s got a 6.23 ERA this spring.
