The lone hit off Hamels was a two-out double in the second by Francisco Cervelli that tied it 1-1. The left-hander struck out two, walked one and hit a batter during his 33-pitch outing.
"It's fun anytime games start," Hamels said. "It's a lot better than practices. Getting the hitters in there, getting the game rolling. That's something that's very hard to simulate. It was good."
"I'm fortunate," Hamels said. "You never have enough baseball knowledge. We're always trying to learn. You have guys that have success, you'll probably learn a little bit more."
Yankees starter Bartolo Colon gave up one run and two hits in two innings. The right-hander threw 23 of 36 pitches for strikes.
"It's a great sign for me," Chamberlain said.
Dane Sardinha put the Phillies ahead 5-4 in the eighth with a two-run bloop single to left.
Mark Teixeira, who was hit on the top of the right big toe by Hamels in the first, hit a fifth-inning RBI triple. The first baseman expects to have a toe bruise, but added he was OK.
"I get hit all the time," he said. "That's part of the game."
Teixeira played the final month last season with a broken right pinky toe, which was caused by a pitched ball.
"I thought it was a good first step," Colon said through an interpreter. "I'm going to continue working hard and see what happens."
The 37-year-old right-hander was released by the Chicago White Sox in September 2009 after going 3-6 with a 4.19 ERA in 12 starts. Colon went 21-8 for the Angels in 2005 and won the AL Cy Young Award, but he is 14-21 since.
The Yankees held a pregame ceremony to honor former team owner George Steinbrenner, who died last July at the age of 80. This marked the Yankees' first spring training game at George Steinbrenner Field since his death.
Steinbrenner's wife, Joan, and the couple's two daughters - Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal and Jessica Steinbrenner - placed roses on the interlocking N.Y. behind home plate. Steinbrenner's granddaughter, Haley Swindal, sang the national anthem.
"Since his passing last summer, the support and compassion shown to us by countless others has brought us great comfort, and today was another example of it," the Steinbrenner family said in a statement.
Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner also took part. Co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner, George Steinbrenner's oldest son, missed the event because of an illness.
