Lannan hoping to move past dismal outing

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The line did not look pretty for Phillies left-hander John Lannan on Monday at Florida Auto Exchange Park.

He allowed 12 runs on 14 hits, including two home runs, with one walk and two strikeouts in four innings.

"I made some good pitches, but most of the day I was up in the zone and they took advantage," he said. "I got my butt kicked and I've got to move on."

Lannan had a pretty good spring to this point, entering the afternoon with a 3.21 ERA in his first four starts.

"You've got to kind of look at it like getting it out of the way, I hope," he said.
