Hunter Pence hit his first home run of the season on Sunday and drove in two runs for Philadelphia, but it wasn't enough. The Phils blew a three-run lead, losing 5-4 when Andrew McCutchen singled home pinch-runner Josh Harrison with two outs in the ninth inning.

McCutchen finished with three hits, none bigger than his smash off the center-field wall against reliever David Herndon (0-1), allowing Harrison to waltz home from third.

The Phillies face the Marlins tomorrow at 1:05 p.m. for the Home Opener at CBP.
