Rollins, Blanton do their share as Phillies beat Giants

Blanton limited the Giants to two solo home runs, pitching into the seventh inning. In 61/3 innings, Blanton scattered eight hits while striking out seven and walking none.

The strikeout and walk numbers are very encouraging, the two solo bombs not so much.

Phillies' Howard returning Monday?
Um, yes?

Phillies Notebook: Minus Howard, Phillies offense turns to small ball
Personally, I blame THE YEAR OF THE PITCHER!!

John Smallwood: Phillies' Polanco quietly makes push for NL batting title
It would be a cool accomplishment, but have you noticed how the batting title has become more and more of a curiosity over recent years?

Blanton survives another rough start

Players appreciate intensity of fans
I'm amazed they didn't ask Billy Wagner for his thoughts.

Phils set for 100th sellout in a row

May Stars Again For Lakewood While Reading Rallies By Akron

May [6-2] fanned 12 and won for the fifth time in six starts. It marked the second time in as many outings and third time overall that he has reached double digits in strikeouts with Lakewood. May has 79 strikeouts in 54 South Atlantic League innings.

Even more encouraging: No walks.

The Zo Zone: Savery Picks Up A Bat
Joe Savery gon' hit. I'm skeptical. As far as I know, first base is his only (likely) position, and first base prospects have to be really, really, really, really good hitters. Not just "really good for a former pitcher."

Please to observe the death of a baseball here, at the merciless hands of Domonic Brown (warning: Autoplay).
