Pierre, a speedy outfielder, had two hits, two RBIs and scored twice - all in the first two innings for the Phillies. Pineiro started for Philadelphia, allowing a run on two hits and a walk in two innings. He struck out two. Tampa Bay right-hander Wade Davis gave up four runs - three earned - and eight hits in four innings. He struck out three. Domonic Brown, who was scheduled to hit fourth as the Phillies' designated hitter, was a late scratch due to neck stiffness.
