Phillies Crush Reds in Chase Utley's Return

The Phillies' bats were in the zone against Bronson Arroyo and the Reds last night in their 10-3 victory. as Chase Utley made his long-awaited return. While he didn't get a hit (the only starter to not record a hit) his presence was felt in other ways and he breathed some life into the team. As "Wheels" said before the game, Utley's return was akin to getting a player in a trade. Utley went 0-5 in his first major league game since the Phillies' disastrous game 6 loss to the Giants in the NLCS. I think it's safe to say Utley deserves a pass, considering it's just his first game back. Let's give him a couple weeks to get acclimated and up to game speed before passing judgment.

Tiger Woods Coming Back To Philadelphia in AT&T National

This is good news for Tiger Woods fans in the Philly area who are hoping to get a glimpse of the world's greatest golfer. Since the U.S. Open is played in mid-June he should be good to go for the AT&T National, which kicks off on June 29th. For tickets to go the official AT&T National website.
