Then again, before his late June demotion to Triple-A last season Myers was leading the Majors in homers allowed by a wide margin.
But unlike his first two frames, Myers stayed away from trouble. After the double, the pitcher whiffed Chipper Jones, got Brian McCann to pop out and Garrett Anderson to ground out to end the frame unscathed.
Nevertheless, Charlie Manuel got J.A. Happ up in the 'pen.
Meanwhile, Derek Lowe made it once through the Phillies lineup and finally got the first hit of the season. The honor goes to Carlos Ruiz whose ground-rule double inside the third-base bag.
So far the Phillies are 1-for-10 this year.
