  11. Botched Base Running, Bullpen Woes Cost Phils Who Can’t Secure Sweep Once Again

    Jul 6, 2011, 11:13 PM EDT

    Dom Brown continued his string of nice games at the plate by ripping was appeared to be a triple in the sixth. But not so fast! After Dom was standing on third for a few moments, someone on the Marlins thought it would be a good idea to appeal to second base umpire Kerwin Danley. They must have seen Brown’s stutter-step before touching the base, because Danley called Brown out. A triple turned into a single and Brown was called out at second. [watch the play here]

  23. Halladay Returns to Ovation and Trash Thrown on Field (And to Top It Off Rauch Got Ejected)

    Jul 2, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay returned to Toronto to face the Blue Jays on Saturday and received a well-deserved, long standing ovation before making his first pitches of the game. Doc gave his former fans a show, thrown yet another complete game win, as the Phillies took game 2 of the series by a 5-3 count.

    The Phillies’ bats gave Halladay some decent support, particularly later in the game. The kind Canadian crowd began to sour after the Chase Utley bopped a two-run homer to get the Phils a 4-3 lead in the seventh. By the time the game was over, Blue Jays reliever Jon Rauch had been ejected, forcefully and with some amount of disrobing (video below, while it lasts), as had manager John Farrell. Long live umpire Alfonso Marquez. One Jays fan ran onto the field, and quite a few threw trash on it.

    Jul 2, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Athletes usually down play their return to the city they spent much of their career bleeding for, and Roy Halladay is no different in his highly-anticipated return to Toronto this afternoon. “I feel like it’s any other start,” Halladay said. “It’s been long enough for me where that’s not really something that’s in the forefront. Obviously it’s the first time back, but I don’t really anticipate anything different than any other road start.”
