Halladay, Howard lead Phils to fifth straight win

September 10 CSN Philly 

Chase Utley is home recovering from a concussion. Jimmy Rollins hasn’t played in nearly three weeks because of a groin strain. Ryan Howard is playing on a painful ankle and Placido Polanco is only a few weeks back from a trip to the disabled list for a sports hernia.  The Phillies can’t afford to lose another infielder, but that’s what almost happened in the middle of the sixth inning Friday night when Pete Orr, filling in for Utley at second base, was nearly run over by a speeding bratwurst in Milwaukee’s famous Sausage Race.

Utley may miss entire trip; Rollins 4-5 days away

Chase Utley has a concussion and probably won’t play for the remainder of this roadtrip, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said on Friday morning.  “He’s going to be re-examined on Saturday,” Amaro said. “If the test goes well, he could go ahead and meet the team in Houston on Monday. But I don’t expect him to play the next two series just so we can be cautious. That’s my guess.”

The Phillies’ Chase Utley, who suffered a concussion on Wednesday, will be out longer than anticipated.  “He’s going to be re-examined on Saturday,” GM Ruben Amaro Jr. told CSNPhilly.com. “If the test goes well, he could go ahead and meet the team in Houston on Monday. But I don’t expect him to play the next two series just so we can be cautious. That’s my guess.”
