Revere helps Phillies avoid sweep by Braves
Ben Revere
The Phillies beat the Braves 1-0 in the finale of a rain-shortened four-game series.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Revere's RBI single in the eighth inning lifted the Philadelphia Phillies to a 1-0 win over the Atlanta Braves in the finale of a rain-shortened four-game series.

Domonic Brown opened the eighth with a base hit and moved to second on Wil Nieves' sacrifice bunt. After Ryan Howard walked, Revere slapped a humpback liner to shallow center to bring Brown around. B.J. Upton's throw to the plate was offline allowing Brown to score easily.

Jonathan Papelbon worked a perfect ninth to earn his fourth save of the season. Starter A.J. Burnett scattered three hits and two walks while fanning five over seven scoreless innings.  continue>>

Future starts now for Astros
By Chris Ruddick, MLB Editor
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kudos to the Houston Astros.

You won't hear that often this season, but the Astros made the right move on Wednesday, recalling super outfield prospect George Springer in an effort to not only jumpstart their woeful offense, but perhaps draw some interest in a team that is probably headed toward a fourth consecutive 100-loss season.

By calling up Springer now, he'll likely qualify for Super Two status and be eligible for arbitration one year earlier than he would have if he were called up after the Super Two eligibility date (usually not too long after Memorial Day).

Nobody would have blamed the Astros for waiting. Plenty of teams do it. It's not as if they are going anywhere this season. In fact, after losing a league- high 111 games last season, they are already tied for the worst record in the American League.  continue>>
