ATLANTA - Adam Morgan held his glove to his mouth for what must have felt like an eternity. The pitcher walked off the mound during the seventh inning of Friday's 2-1 loss to the Braves. He turned and watched Juan Uribe's arching home run sky past him. Morgan did not lower his glove until the ball finally landed. The rookie's homecoming had been spoiled. Morgan grew up 20 miles north of Turner Field. He and his friends used to tailgate in the stadium's Blue Lot and buy $5 tickets when they were in high school.

Chanting "black lives matter" and the names of the victims of the fatal shootings in Charleston, S.C., about 80 protesters braved the wind and rain Saturday in a two-mile march along Broad Street. After the Rev. Mark Tyler of Philadelphia's Mother Bethel A.M.E. led a prayer for the nine victims, the group walked in the southbound lanes from Broad and Erie to Cecil B. Moore Avenue under a police escort as traffic crept behind. The marchers carried nine posters with photographs of the victims, but the demonstration went beyond the June 17 incident at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Williamstown's first three batters in the sixth inning reached base with singles. Williamstown's first three batters in the seventh inning also reached base with singles. It was way too little, way too late for the Braves. Millburn was comfortably in command, and would cruise to an 11-3 victory over Williamstown in the Group 4 state championship game Saturday at Toms River South. But those two late rallies still meant something to the Braves, to their coaches and to the legion of blue-clad fans who made the long drive on a hazy and humid day to see the program's first appearance in the state finals.

ATLANTA - The worst of Jerome Williams' 15 starts in red pinstripes created a hole out of which the Phillies could not dig. On a night when their offense managed 12 hits, four for extra bases, the game's result still mirrored much of the previous week's. A 7-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday capped the Phillies' first 10-game road trip of the season, a three-city jaunt that produced only three wins. They have yet to win a road series this season and have lost each of their last nine dating to September.

ATLANTA - The day after eclipsing five runs for only the second time this season, the Phillies managed a season-high 14 hits Monday night. They combined them with another quality start on the mound and mostly effective bullpen work, a formula that, although seldom seen this season, typically translates to success. Their 5-2 win against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field earned them back-to-back victories for just the third time this season. Tuesday offers another chance for the Phillies (10-17)

Denny Bentley didn't know he was going to pitch for the Williamstown baseball team Friday afternoon at Clearview. He also didn't know he would be at bat in the top of the eighth inning. Both ended up being pleasant surprises. He worked four scoreless inning of relief, and drove in the go-ahead runs in the top of the eighth as the Braves topped the Pioneers, 7-4. With the win, the Braves moved closer to securing the Tri-County Royal division's automatic berth to the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic.

NEARLY A MONTH into the season, nobody besides the Mets seems interested in winning the National League East. Yesterday, the Atlanta Braves left Citizens Bank Park having squandered an excellent opportunity to build on their surprising start, with two losses in three games against the last-place Phillies. Meanwhile, the Phillies actually moved themselves into a tie with the Nationals, who entered the season as the heavy favorite to claim the division title. Like the division itself, yesterday's game felt like a matter of who wanted to lose it more.

Is the Big Piece a Big Tease? Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard has been written off more than a billionaire's tax exemptions. And while nobody is claiming he will ever recapture his MVP form, Howard is known to go on a brief tear that shows there may be something left. After the roughest of starts this season, the 35-year-old first baseman is slowly starting to come around. Howard hit a three-run homer in the first inning Sunday and then had nothing to show for three hard-hit outs in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park.

RYNE SANDBERG walked out of his office, through the tunnel to the dugout and right onto the field about a half-hour before the Phillies took regular pregame batting practice yesterday afternoon. Ryan Howard was peppering the catchers with strikes from the mound, letting them practice throwing down to second base. Outfielders were working on their throws into the infield. Later, Larry Bowa shot sharp ground balls with a fungo bat to infielders. "Basic fundamentals of catching the ball, throwing the ball, routine plays, hitting the cutoff men," Sandberg said shortly after the extra work - and after addressing his position players, too. "Not asking for any miracles, just make the routine plays and make it a priority.

David Buchanan cruised through the first six innings Saturday night against his hometown Atlanta Braves. The Phillies' second-year righthander expended only 25 pitches to get through three innings. He didn't allow a hit until the fifth. But a shaky seventh doomed Buchanan and the Phillies in their 5-2 loss. A pair of two-out walks chased the starter from the game, and he watched from the dugout as consecutive Atlanta hits off Jake Diekman turned his one-run lead into a one-run deficit.
