  • Sizemore's first time at first base an eventful one April 17, 2014
    Scott Sizemore had been told to "be ready for anything," and so that was the mantra he followed while preparing to play his first career game at first base on Thursday. He certainly wasn't counting on completing a triple play in his second inning of action.

  • Hamels likely to face Dodgers on Wednesday April 19, 2014
    When Cole Hamels comes off the DL, he is most likely to start Wednesday against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium because it would allow the Phillies to split up left-handers Cliff Lee and Hamels with right-hander A.J. Burnett.
