It took just five minutes on Monday afternoon for a 3-1 loss to Arizona to be decided at Citizens Bank Park. Jeremy Hellickson threw 10 pitches, which resulted in three quick hits. The first three batters scored and the Phillies were in a hole. Scoring more than three runs in a single game again proved to be quite an arduous task for baseball's lowest-scoring team. The Phillies have scored three runs in their last 35 innings. It has been a week since the Phillies provided their starting pitcher with more than two runs of support.

Maikel Franco worked a hitter's count in each of his three at-bats Saturday. Each of those at-bats ended in disappointment as Franco's difficult month continued in a 4-1 loss to Arizona. Franco never looked comfortable against Arizona ace Zack Greinke. Even when he found himself ahead of the count. He popped up twice after working a two-ball, no-strike count. He struck out in the seventh after being ahead, 3-0. The slumping slugger is hitless in his last 12 at-bats. He is batting .208 in June with a .255 on-base percentage.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Flyers have had many pleasant surprises during their surge toward the playoffs, but none has been bigger than the offense provided by Radko Gudas. After failing to score in his first 57 games this season, the burly defenseman went into Saturday with five goals in the last 10 games. "To tell you the truth, I was surprised when he couldn't buy a goal," winger Jake Voracek said before the Flyers faced Arizona on Saturday night. "When you see him in practice and see him in the games, he finds a way to put the puck through.

If you're looking for a midwinter break with a twist, consider a dude ranch in southern Arizona. With sunny days and cool clear nights, the area offers glimpses into the Arizona Territory of years gone by, when the likes of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were becoming legends. Dude ranches have evolved from the days when working cattle ranches hosted a few paying guests from back East to help with ropin' and ridin'. Modern guest ranches still raise cattle, but they offer comfortable lodging, gourmet meals, and as much (or little)

Toeing the foul line with less than 30 seconds remaining, and a win over a national power on the line, is a tall order for any high school basketball player. But on Thursday in Mesa, Ariz., Archbishop Wood's Matt Cerruti never capitulated. The junior connected on a pair of free throws with 20 seconds remaining to lift the Vikings to a 56-54 win over Mountain Ridge (Ariz.) in a Visit Mesa Challenge boys' basketball game. Mountain Ridge is the top-ranked team in Arizona and the 20th-ranked team in the nation, according to Maxpreps.

A MONTH AGO, Jaylen Watkins was an uncomfortable reminder of a really poor Eagles draft. He was toiling on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad, after having been selected by the Birds in the fourth round in 2014, then cut before the start of this season. On Saturday, Watkins might be lining up opposite DeSean Jackson or Pierre Garcon as the Eagles try to keep their playoff hopes alive against Washington. Watkins ended up playing 49 defensive snaps Sunday night against Arizona, after both Eagles starting corners, Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe, left the game in the first half with injuries.
