Hellickson pitches 5 hitless innings, Phillies top Astros

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Jeremy Hellickson threw five hitless innings and Cesar Hernandez drove in three runs in the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-4 win Sunday against the Astros.

Hellickson struck out six and walked three in his first Grapefruit League start since March 4.

Hernandez homered, doubled and singled. Pinch hitter Cedric Hunter also drove in a run, doubling off former Phillies reliever Ken Giles in the fifth.

Giles allowed two runs in one inning.

Hernandez hit a tying double in the seventh and scored the go-ahead run on a perfect suicide-squeeze bunt by Freddy Galvis.

Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer off Hector Neris in the sixth, part of a four-run inning for the Astros. It was Rasmus' third home run of the spring.

Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez gave up one run and two hits in four innings. He didn't walk anyone and struck out five in his second start of the spring.
