Michael Saunders hit his first homer Sunday to help a Phillies split-squad beat the Tigers 8-5.
Saunders was the Phillies' No. 5 hitter today, and that figures to be his spot during the season, putting a lefty in between the team's right-handed bats in the middle of the order. One thing that does remains to be seen is how much Saunders will play against lefties. The Phillies are leaning towards keeping Aaron Altherr as a bench player, and if that happens, it'd make sense to start him over Saunders versus southpaws. Mar 5 - 4:31 PM
