The 30-year-old Slowey, who came to Phillies’ camp on a minor league deal, tossed three perfect innings on Sunday in his second start of the spring to help the Phillies pick up a 5-4 win over the Rays.
It was the Phillies’ second win in the first week of Grapefruit League play – both of which have been credited to Slowey – as they improved to 2-3-1.
The Rays took two runs back in the eighth, but the Phillies would tack on a run in the top of the ninth.
That extra run prove to be the difference in the end, as the Phillies held off the Rays for a 5-4 win.
Galvis went 2-for-3 at the plate on the afternoon with one RBI.
Slowey would continue to make his early case for a spot in the back of the Phillies’ starting rotation, recording three perfect innings of work and striking out two batters.
