Kevin Frandsen the hero? Indeed. The Phillies got a huge ninth inning hit from Kevin Frandsen to beat the Royals, 4-3.

Frandsen didn’t do too much and put solid contact on it. Game winner. LANNAN SOLID IN DEBUT -John Lannan was by no means spectacular, but he was efficient and kept the Phillies well within striking distance. Lannan tossed seven innings, giving up three runs on five hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out five. A few untimely hits cost him some runs, but overall, you couldn’t ask for much more out of your rotation anchor. You’ll take 7 inn./3 ER every time. -By no means is he overpowering, but Lannan beauitfully changes speeds.
