TODAY'S FEATURE STORYPHILLIES BEAT BRAVES, 5-4 A first-inning homer from Ryan Howard and a one-out RBI triple from
Ben Revere gave the Phillies all the needed offense in a 5-4 victory
over the Braves on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The
victory gave the Phillies their second series victory of the season as
they closed out a seven-game homestand. The Phillies also got
6 2/3 innings from starting pitcher Jerome Williams, who picked up
his second straight win. Williams gave up three runs on eight hits
and a pair of walks. He struck out two and is 6-3 with a 3.11 ERA in
13 starts since joining the Phillies last season. Luis Garcia faced
one batter and recorded the final out of the seventh inning before
turning the game over to Ken Giles for the eighth. Giles faced four
hitters, recording a strikeout, to set it up for closer Jonathan Papelbon.
Papelbon gave up a pinch-hit homer with one out in the ninth, but
recovered to retire two of the next four hitters for the save.

The Phillies have become an organization that is complacent, behind
the times with respect to what their counterparts are doing, and an
organization that seems to have no viable business plan. Regardless
of how you look at it, all of this occurred during Ruben Amaro's watch.
When Pat Gillick left the organization as its general manager, both the
Phillies scouting program and player development system had regained
respectability, and were producing talent that was usable at the major-
league level. |
