Evan Mecham, who was impeached and removed from office by the GOP-led Legislature. Arizona does not have a lieutenant governor.

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.

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.

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'.
