If for whatever reason you don't happen to follow Phillies beat writer extraordinaire Jim Salisbury on Twitter, you missed one heck of a showing this morning down in Clearwater, Florida where Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hit in an extended spring training game.

Both Utley and Howard had solid days at the plate according to Salisbury, who live tweeted the happenings with 140-character gems as seen below.

Expect a full report from Sully later in the day, but if you needed your Utz fix, you can read all of his tweets from the morning here.

Chase deposited a ball into the empty berm at Brighthouse Field.

Welcomed news on a slow Wednesday.

Poetry:

Utley's HR off a lefty.... Swing was nice and smooth... Ball sitting out on berm. Lonely.

OK, finally tally: Howard 2 for 4 with 2 singles and 2 BB.... Utley 2 for 5 with double, HR and walk
