Halladay throws fifth complete game to beat A’s

June 27 CSN Philly:

The Phillies are seeing both ends of the American League spectrum on this homestand. The are the best pitching team in the AL. The Boston Red Sox are the best hitting team in the AL.  If the Phils have as much success against the Sox as they did the A’s, they will be a happy bunch when they board their charter flight to Toronto on Thursday night for yet another interleague series.

Halladay excites more than just the fans

June 27 Allentown Morning Call:

When Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times, Bad Times” starts blaring over the sound system at Citizens Bank Park, Ryan Howard gets a little added adrenaline rush.  No, it’s not because he loves the song that much.  It’s because that song means the guy who is considered one of baseball’s best pitchers is on the mound.

Struggling? Rollins will have none of that

June 27 Allentown Morning Call:

When a big leaguer fails to reach base in 15 consecutive plate appearances, there’s bound to be talk of a slump.  Jimmy Rollins begs to differ.  “I wasn’t struggling,” the Phillies leadoff hitter said. “I hit some balls hard. Just didn’t have any hits in my last 15 at-bats. That’s not struggling. It’s only three games.”  That’s easy to say, but the spoken word isn’t always convincing.
