Brown, Kendrick lead Phillies past Yankees

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown continued his fantastic spring Tuesday at Bright House Field.

Brown hit a solo home run to right field in the fourth inning in a 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees. It was his sixth homer and 12th RBI of the spring as he looks to lock up a spot to be one of the Phillies' everyday outfielders in 2013.

The Yankees took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning. Center fielder Brett Gardner reached on an infield single and advanced to second on Kyle Kendrick's throwing error. Ichiro Suzuki doubled to left-center field two batters later to score Gardner.

Kendrick otherwise threw well. He retired eight of the first nine batters he faced, with the only batter reaching because of a throwing error from third baseman Michael Young. In six innings, Kendrick allowed two hits, one unearned run and struck out three.

Yankees right-hander Adam Warren allowed seven hits, two runs, one walk, one home run and struck out two in 3 2/3 innings.

Young knocked an RBI single in sixth for his 11th run driven in of the spring, while Ryan Howard added his fifth spring homer, a solo shot in the seventh, to close the Phillies' scoring.

Up next: The Phillies have a day off on Wednesday, but there will be some pitchers throwing in Minor League games at Carpenter Complex. The Phillies resume Grapefruit League play Thursday with a 7:05 p.m. ET game (on MLB.TV) against the Boston Red Sox in Fort Myers. Left-hander Cole Hamels drew the unlucky start as the Phils play a rare night game 2 hours and 30 minutes away.
