BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Kurt Coleman looks ready for real games. On the last day of practice before the Eagles open the preseason, Coleman delivered the hit of training camp, crushing LeSean McCoy. The play came near the end of 11-on-11 drills. Coleman started near the line of scrimmage, darted back at the snap, but quickly read a screen pass to McCoy. He raced forward and leveled the running back as defensive coordinator Juan Castillo and his teammates on the sideline went wild.

THE ATLANTA BRAVES' biggest offseason addition is finally coming up with big hits.

Uggla extended his hitting streak to 20 games and leads Atlanta with 19 homers. He entered July with a .176 batting average but is up to .206 after going 1-for-4 against his former club.

It was a taut pitchers' duel between senior lefthanders who kept tossing zeroes on the scoreboard. One swing changed the Non-Public South B championship game. Gloucester Catholic junior catcher Elliott McCummings drove an 0-1 pitch over the fence in left-center field in the bottom of the fourth inning to snap a scoreless tie and spark the Rams to a 3-0 victory over Holy Cross. "Fastball, right down the middle," McCummings said. "It was the best feeling in the world. " In a game with just four hits total, McCummings' blast loomed large.

The second-largest crowd to ever cram into Citizens Bank Park for a regular-season game came in search of the real Cliff Lee Monday, almost certain that was either Matt Beech or Omar Daal or some other forgettable lefthander who had confiscated Lee's uniform in recent starts. Lee gave the kind of performance that has so endeared him to this city's baseball fans, pitching seven shutout innings with 10 strikeouts and one walk as the Phillies opened a 10-game homestand by scraping past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 3-1. Early on, it was no breeze for Lee. He used his resourcefulness to fight his way out of a couple of early jams before settling into the kind of groove that had been missing in some of his recent starts.

Only moments after defeating the University of Utah, the tournament's defending champion, members of the Army rugby sevens team were refueling with chewy granola bars. Sweating onto the grass just a few yards short of the Delaware River, the Black Knights were multitasking: not only digesting the energy they'd need a few hours later against Dartmouth, but also digesting their impressive come-from-behind semifinal victory over the Utes. But in the championship match of the 2011 USA Sevens Rugby Championships, the Big Green brought more to the table in a 32-10 victory at PPL Park.

Kane Price is a starting outfielder and backup catcher for Council Rock South, but his No. 51 jersey is not a tribute to Phillies backstop Carlos Ruiz. "I've worn that number ever since I was 13," he said. "I was playing junior-legion ball for Northampton, and the coach just happened to give me that jersey. I had a great season, so I decided to stay with it. " Price also has made the most out of the number 8, as in his spot in C.R. South's batting lineup. In Wednesday's PIAA District 1 Class AAAA second-round playoff against Downingtown East, his 3-for-3 effort sparked the Golden Hawks to a dramatic 6-5 victory in Holland.
