CLEARWATER, Fla.–Phillies 2B Chase Utley (right knee) goes 2-5 with a homer (picture below),  a double,  a walk and a strike out in his second extended spring game, this one against a Blue Jays squad.  With threatning skies,  the game was played at Bright House Network Field the spring training home of the Phillies.  Utley was joined by Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard who made his first appearance in a game when he grounded out. Teammates asked Howard why he was on his way back to the dugout, he replied, “I did it out of habit.”
