(6/6/2015) Veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur had an up and down day in Saturday's 7-5 loss by the Phillies, hitting a fourth-inning grand slam off the Giants' Madison Bumgarner but also committing a key throwing error.

With the Phillies down by six runs, Francoeur utilized some of his veteran savvy to take one of the NL's toughest pitchers deep for his fourth homer of the season.

"It was the same pitch he got me out on the first AB, so I tried to kind of get ready a little quicker and stay a little taller," Francoeur said. "I've been kind of diving out over the plate. It was a good pitch to go on and obviously it was at a good time for us."

Francoeur is now hitting .252 on the season, with 18 RBIs.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

In Monday night's 5-2 win over the Braves, Francoeur went 4 for 5 with two RBI. One of those hits was a ninth-inning triple that scored Darin Ruf. Francoeur also had an RBI double in the first that scored Ben Revere. 

Francoeur, who was drafted by the Braves in 2002 and made his major-league debut with Atlanta in 2005, entered the game on an 0-for-19 skid, which included going hitless in 13 at-bats in his team's series against the Cardinals.

"In so many words, I'd like to say I was mentally [messed up] on Thursday," Francoeur said about the Cardinals series, per MLB.com. "I was scuffling. To get some time off this weekend was a big deal for me, man. Anybody that knows me knows that I grind hard, I play hard. I put a lot of pressure on myself. To get that time to really rest and relax, I felt really comfortable coming into today."

Francoeur is now hitting a slash line of .214/.267/.386.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Francoeur launched a three-run home run off Rick Porcello in his first start of the season, leading his club to a 4-2 victory. It was his first home run since June 16, 2013, when he was a member of the Royals. He is hitting .400 (2 for 5) to start the year.

"I hit (15) in El Paso last year," Francoeur said, per MLB.com. "It was nice. It was a lot of hard work last year. It makes you appreciate being back up here and getting those opportunities. And you don’t want to miss them. It’s a lot of fun."

Grady Sizemore the favorite to start in right field for Phillies?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Sizemore started a third straight spring game in right field Thursday against the Rays, which could be a strong indication of manager Ryne Sandberg's plans for right field with Brown on the disabled list.

The other remaining candidates to start in right field are Jordan Danks and Jeff Francoeur.

While Sizemore appears to be the favorite to start in right field, he is not having a strong performance offensively this spring. He is batting just .200 (9 for 45) with no extra-base hits, three RBI, four walks, five strikeouts and six runs in 17 games.

He did not disappoint, smacking two home runs in his first two at-bats.
