The Phillies minor leaguers were at it again on Thursday, as they faced minor league players from the Tigers organization. The Double-A squad dropped their second-straight contest — falling by a score of 4-3. Let’s take a look at the highlights!
Ryan Edell -
Edell, a native of Boston, MA, tossed three scoreless innings for the Double-A team in a 4-3 loss to the Tigers Double-A club on Thursday. The 27-year-old left-handed pitcher split the 2010 season with Akron and Midland — both Double-A teams.

Over two spring appearances (one Major League, one Minor League), Edell has tossed 4.2 IP without allowing a run.
