Hideki Matsui hit one of four New York home runs, offsetting consecutive long balls by Chase Utley and Ryan Howard and leading the Yankees to a 10-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Utley hit his second home run in two games and Ryan Howard connected for his seventh of the spring, but the World Series champions dropped to 10-13-2 in Grapefruit League play.

Cody Ransom, Nick Swisher and Melky Cabrera also homered for New York.

Joba Chamberlain gave up just one other hit - a double to Ronny Paulino - in 4 1-3 innings. The 23-year-old right-hander walked three and stuck out three.
