Phillies Beat Giants 8-2

On paper this appeared to be a mismatch when Joe Blanton went up against Matt Cain and it appeared the Phillies would have their hands full against the Giants. Blanton was 4-6 this season with a 5.69 ERA - barely enough to qualify as a major league pitcher. Matt Cain on the other hand was 9-9 with a 3.11 ERA heading into tonight's matchup. Thanks to Jimmy Rollins the pitching mis-mtach was a non-factor. Rollins nearly hit for the cycle tonight and the Phillies won 8-2.

Eagles Break Camp at Lehigh

The Eagles had a light workout this morning and broke camp at Lehigh. What's most important is that Jamaal Jackson and Todd Herremans have returned to practice and they haven't suffered any serious injuries in camp. That's always a good thing.

87-year-old World War II Vet Shot in Yard

An elderly man was shot in his yard yesterday afternoon in West Oak Lane. Afterwards, a man and woman in Muslim garb were seen running from the scene. - who apparently broke into a home in the area earlier. The man who was killed was a "fixture" in his neighborhood and a World War II vet. It really makes you wonder if people like this have any concience or souls for that matter. 

Arrest Made in Assault of Philadelphia Cop

Perry Martin, a 42-year-old thug who was shoplifting from a Rite Aid was arrested for assaulting Lt. Douglas Stanford yesterday. Martin was confronted by Officer Stanford Tuesday, after he was caught shoplifting from the store. Instead of conceding, Martin decided to bodyslam Officer Stanford to the pavement outside the store.
