The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with closer Brad Ziegler by agreeing to a two-year, $10.5 million contract with the righty reliever.

BALTIMORE - Citing club policy, the Phillies declined to comment Monday on a CSNPhilly.com report that the organization is targeting longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail for a front-office position. The report indicated it is unclear what role MacPhail would assume if he joined the team. Pat Gillick became the Phillies' president on a permanent basis in January but has said he doesn't envision himself in the role in two or three years. Gillick, 77, is in charge of baseball operations.

Baseball once again looks like the national pastime on television. For the first time ever, a baseball league championship game drew more television viewers than "Monday Night Football" head-to-head. Game 4 of the AL Championship Series between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox got an 11.6 rating and 18 share on Fox on Monday night, 38 percent higher than the 8.4 rating for ABC's coverage of the Atlanta Falcons against the St. Louis Rams. The rating for the Rams' 36-0 victory was the lowest ever in the 34-year history of "Monday Night Football.

Syd Thrift, a former general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates who spent nearly a half century in baseball, died at 77. He underwent knee replacement surgery Monday in Milford, Del., and died that night, said the Baltimore Orioles, one of many teams for whom he worked. An autopsy will determine the cause of death. "He was a great baseball man - both on and off the field - who dedicated his life to the game," commissioner Bud Selig said. "He was a personal friend of mine and I will miss him. " Thrift became GM of the Pirates in 1985 and gave Jim Leyland his start as a major league manager.

BALTIMORE Orioles slugger Chris Davis is currently sitting out a 25-game suspension for using Adderall, a banned substance. Usually a drug that helps people with attention deficit disorder improve their focus, it is categorized by Major League Baseball as a stimulant, thus the suspension. Maybe Davis can use what happened Monday on a Maryland highway as Exhibit A that, indeed, the drug has made him more alert and focused. Traveling on I-295 on his way to pick up friends at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport, Davis saw a tire blow out on a big pickup truck, causing the vehicle to flip and pin a man underneath it. Davis, whose nickname just happens to be "Crash," was the first to arrive at the accident scene and began waving to passers-by to stop and help.

The Phillies' best run output in eight games was still not enough to snap their skid. Their losing streak reached nine, the franchise's longest since 1999, with a 6-4 defeat Wednesday night against the Baltimore Orioles at Citizens Bank Park. Kevin Correia was charged with all six Baltimore runs, although only two were earned. Freddy Galvis' 10th fielding error of the season kick-started the Orioles' crucial four-run fourth inning. "I don't think he's a guy that should have 10 errors at this stage of the game," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - Tootie Eutzy bleeds Phillies red. A 69-year-old retired corrections officer, she has scored Phillies games on homemade scorecards for 30 years, even attending her son's 1987 high school graduation with a portable radio and earplugs to chart strikeouts, walks, hits, and runs. "Pete Rose won the World Series in 1980, and I was hooked," she says of her infatuation with the Phils. But Eutzy won't get to watch more than about a dozen Phillies games this year on television at her home here near Harrisburg.

Pat Gillick returned to baseball yesterday as general manager of the Baltimore Orioles, one of the few jobs that could prod him out of retirement. Gillick was general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays from their initial season in 1977 through 1994, producing World Series champions in 1992 and 1993. He was elevated to executive vice president in September 1994, serving in an advisory capacity. "When I backed off 14 months ago, I kind of figured I had enough," he said. "But I was kind of idle, not really doing too much, and my wife gave me a major league, 'Yes, you did retire too early.

The Baltimore Orioles crossed an item off their trade-deadline to-do list, bolstering their bullpen by acquiring reliever Francisco Rodriguez from the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league infielder Nick Delmonico. Rumors had it that the man known as K-Rod was a target of the Detroit Tigers - who, Phillies fans may note, are presumably still searching for a possible closer. Rodriguez was once one of the best relievers in the game, saving a major-league-record 62 games for the Los Angeles Angels in 2008.

Matt Klentak had no trouble dispelling the notion that the Phillies hired solely an "analytics guy" as their new general manager. In his first day with his new organization, Klentak stressed balance as crucial to the team's ongoing rebuilding process. "Teams that lean too far in one direction, whether it's analytics or scouting or free agency or whatever it may be, those are teams that tend to get in trouble," he said. "I want to make sure that we are looking at all avenues, all pieces of information, and [we]

Three-plus years of travel and books couldn't sever a lifetime's bonds, so last June, lured by the Humpty Dumpty challenge of reassembling the Phillies, Andy MacPhail came back to the family business. Yet as eager as the reeling franchise's new president is to tackle this daunting task, there is first, he knows, a nightmare to confront. Early on Feb. 18, 1969, MacPhail's oldest brother, Lee III, the Reading Phillies' new general manager, was returning home after speaking at a Wyomissing banquet.

SAN DIEGO - On the last day that Adam Loewen had played in the major leagues, the Phillies won their 102d game of the 2011 season. The last time Loewen had pitched in the major leagues, Randy Johnson and Greg Maddux were still part of big-league rotations. But there was the 6-foot-6 lefthander on Friday afternoon at Petco Park, settling into a locker stall in the visitors' clubhouse. A circuitous route back to the majors surely made the call the 30-year-old Canadian received on Thursday from the Phillies all the more rewarding.

AS I WROTE last week, there is plenty of reason to be skeptical about the Phillies' reported interest in bringing aboard longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to eventually replace club president Pat Gillick. That skepticism has less to do with MacPhail himself than it does the process that would have landed him. Gillick's comments in interviews with the Inquirer and MLB.com over the weekend suggest he is intimately involved in picking his replacement. Given the organization's ownership structure, with no majority owner imposing his or her vision, it isn't clear who else would spearhead such an effort.

If you need a reason for why the Phillies have reportedly targeted longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to join their much-maligned front office, look no further than Citizens Bank Park's visitors' dugout last week. MacPhail's biggest triumphs came in 1987 and 1991, when he was general manager for two Minnesota Twins world championships, and he followed them by spending 12 less-successful years as president and CEO of the Chicago Cubs. But the Baltimore Orioles' recent success - their 2012 wild-card berth and last year's American League Championship Series appearance - wouldn't have happened without moves made by the now-62-year-old MacPhail.

THE BOTTOM of the fourth inning started off promising. Maikel Franco singled and Ryan Howard followed with a double down the rightfield line. But then Domonic Brown was caught looking at a (high) called third strike. Cameron Rupp went down swinging at strike three. Cody Asche stared at strike three. The trio of strikeouts brought boos to Citizens Bank Park, but since a large percent of the park's population was made up of fans adorned in orange, the boos weren't overpowering.

BALTIMORE - Jerome Williams tumbled over in a heap, facedown, just outside the batter's box. An awkward leg split while covering home plate left the Phillies' struggling righthander in agony, ending a miserable 30-pitch outing that gave up six Baltimore Orioles runs. But that was just the beginning of the Phillies' most embarrassing performance of a dismal season. Baseball's worst team hit rock bottom Tuesday night in a 19-3 defeat at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, in 3 hours, 11 minutes redefining the meaning of the oft-used sports term "rebuilding.

BALTIMORE - Chase Utley, who has failed to emerge from an offensive funk 10 weeks into the season, took ground balls at first base before Monday night's game against the Orioles and was slotted at designated hitter in manager Ryne Sandberg's lineup. Heavy with corner outfielders but not much else, Sandberg decided to use the DH slot with Utley, one of the least productive hitters in baseball in 2015. Utley's batting average (.184) and OPS (.553) both ranked 159th out of 161 qualifying big-league hitters entering play Monday.
