    This is the last thing the Phillies wanted to see: another left-handed pitcher. The Phillies are batting only .182 against left-handed pitchers this year; their left-handed hitters are even worse (.136). And get this --- the Phillies are one of......
  • Howard unlikely to move from clean-up spot in near future; Roster move made

     
    Ryan Howard's numbers are hardly that of a clean-up hitter, especially in the last five weeks. From May 8 to June 12, Howard hit .218 (22-for-101) with one home run in 111 plate appearances (29 games, 26 starts). His slugging......

  • Howard sitting with groin tightness; Ruiz hit by pitch on wrist

  • Utley admits it will be a slow process; Victorino touched by tribute video

  • After five stolen bases Thursday, Manuel calls for his pitchers to hold runners on better

  • Brown had a game plan; Manuel on why Mayberry left on contact

     
    Pirates pitcher Jeff Lockewas foreign to most of the Phillies hitters. Not to Dom Brown, though. Brown had faced him in the minors several times and knew the lefty would be attacking the Phillies with fastballs. The knowledge, and experience,......
