It's started

First pitch 11:59 a.m. 73 degrees. A bit overcast. Perfect weather and baseball has begun.

Ryan Freel flied out to right for the first out of the intrasquad game. Chris Denorfia followed with a hit. Bronson Arroyo got the next two.

Now we're on to Homer Time.

Brandon Phillips hit Homer Bailey's first pitch right at Paul Janish for a routine 6-3. Alex Gonzalez followed with bloop single to center on an 0-1 pitch. Adam Dunn works a walks. Bailey missed high and outside on 3-2 pitch.

Jeff Conine takes a ball. Bailey then drops in a nice curve for a strike. 6-4-3 double play on the next pitch. So went Bailey's spring debut. Will update after talking to the phenom.

Brandon Phillips made an absolutely spectacular play in the third inning. He went deep into the hole to field a ball off the bat of Chris Denorfia, then beat him with a rainbow throw.
