The Phillies would struggle upon Lee's departure, however, as Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez allowed a run in the third and fourth innings. The Astros would maintain control from there, picking up a 6-3 win over the Phillies.
The Phillies would get that run back in the fourth on a double by Cody Asche, but Gonzalez would cough up a home run to Luis Valbuena in the bottom of the frame to give the Astros a 2-1 lead.
The Astros would hit two more solo shots in the fifth off of Phillippe Aumont to extend their lead to 4-1.
Houston would tack on two more in the eighth, including one run on an RBI double by former Phillies prospect Jon Singleton, on their way to a 6-3 win over the Phillies.
The Phillies will be back in action Friday against the Yankees at Bright House Field, as Cole Hamels makes his first appearance of Spring Training.
