Of all the decisions Pat Gillick made over the winter the acquisition of Jason Werth has to be up near the top. Werth can flat-out play, and last night his pinch hit three run home run in the seventh cut Washington's lead to 6-5. Chase Utley and J-Roll followed with clutch  hits to put the Phillies over the top, 7-6.

With nine left to play, every game is a must-win. With the Mets losing last night, the Phillies are a game and a half behind them in the NL East and two and a half behind San Diego in the Wild Card.

Let's hope Adam Eaton has five or six innings of shutout in him tonight. It seems if the Phillies can get to the sixth or seventh, they've got a shot with J.C. Romero, Tom  Gordon and Brett Myers, who picked up his 18th save last night.

It appears that Penn State might have it's first test of the season when the Nit's travel to the Big House tomorrow to face a 1-2 Michigan team.

Michigan Coach Lloyd Carr may need a win to hang on to his  job. You recall the Wolverines being embarrassed by Appalachian State, then knocked off by Oregon before beating the Irish, 38-0.

Teams like Michigan and Penn State fatten up the front of their schedules with weaklings to pave the way for a bowl invitation. Well, Michigan got 'licked' by one of those weaklings.

Tomorrow we'll see if Penn State is good, or have they fattened up by 'licking' the weaklings?

You know the Golden Boys of North Broad Street should be 1-2 but we won't go there. Let's see how well Coach prepared the Owls after they had a win snatched away from them last week at Connecticut. It must be frustrating to a coaching staff trying to revive a program without a pulse by being cheated by a bad call. Tomorrow's game against Bowling Green (last year's only win for the Owls) is on local television.

Last night an old friend offered me two tickets to the Penn State-Temple game in November so Denise and I will be there in our cherry and white. Everybody knows that Temple is going to upset Penn State, 24-21.

Just when I was saying Hollywood doesn't make good cowboy movies anymore, we saw 3:10 to Yuma. I never thought I'd say this but my favorite actor is an Englishman.  He was great in the Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, and Master and Commander. Russell Crowe is the man. 

 3:10 to Yuma is a great  movie: "Kid, I have to be rotten as hell to ride with this gang." But why didn't he take the kid and go back to get the woman instead of getting on the train? We'll never know. Fear not, I didn't ruin it for you.

Tonight the Mechanicsburg Wildcats travel across the Susquehanna River to take on the Middletown Blue Raiders at Memorial Field. This is the 'Cats first league game of the season. Both teams are 2-1 so a  win will put the 'Cats in the playoff picture.  

Middletown is that bedroom community nestled in close to the Harrisburg Airport settled by German immigrants from the Black Forest and less than five miles from the nuclear power plant, Three Mile Island. As you may remember, Three Mile Island suffered a partial meltdown in 1979, causing Governor Dick Thornburgh to evaculate the area. Let's hope the  Blue Raiders experience a different kind of meltdown tonight. Kickoff is at 7. 

And oh yes the Eagles.

Ron,
I'm scouring the Phillies site and Comcast sports site...
DID THE PHILS FINALLY FIRE GILLIGAN?!
