IT'S NO SECRET the Phillies organization expects great things from 22-year-old Domonic Brown. Anticipating this, the Reading Phillies seized an opportunity to cash in on the prospect's popularity. Brown currently plays for the Triple A Lehigh Valley IronPigs. But yesterday, Double A Reading announced it has added a Domonic Brown giveaway, thereby becoming the first team to schedule a promotion for the talented outfielder. Reading will give out a Brown replica jersey to the first 2,000 kids before its game against the Erie SeaWolves on Aug. 8. "Brown has had a great 2010 season both here in Reading and in Lehigh Valley, and we thought, why not be the first to give our fans something to remember his time here," Reading general manager Scott Hunsicker said yesterday.

There was no shame in the Marlins clubhouse. "Look who's pitching," Florida rightfielder Cody Ross told reporters. "It's Roy Halladay. He's the best pitcher in baseball. It's not embarrassing. He's a Cy Young award winner. He did exactly what he needed to do tonight. He executed every pitch it seemed like. " Halladay's complete game was the second thrown this season - Oakland's Dallas Braden also did it 20 days earlier. He did it with relative ease as the Marlins had few hard-hit balls off Halladay.

Wrigley a Cubs problem? In what must sound like blasphemy to Chicago Cubs fans, Gerry Fraley wrote on Foxsports.com that Wrigley Field had contributed to the club's problems this season. "This is no time for sentiment. Wrigley embodies everything that is wrong with the Cubs," Fraley wrote. "The place is a dump, but for some reason it has been turned into a mecca. . . . There are other drawbacks to Wrigley. The irregular starting times prevent players from getting into a routine.

The Phillies have the St. Louis Cardinals' outfield to thank for padding their cushion in the National League East last night. Cardinals leftfielder Matt Holliday and centerfielder Colby Rasmus each drove in three runs and rightfielder Ryan Ludwick had two RBI in an 11-6 victory over the visiting Florida Marlins. With the loss, second-place Florida fell to seven games behind the Phillies. The Cardinals jumped on Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco (11-9) for four runs in the first inning, on two-run singles by Holliday and Ludwick.

Maddon disputes fine The Tampa Bay Rays played better baseball last week than they had all season, and it might be because manager Joe Maddon is a little lighter in the wallet. Maddon was fined $500 by Major League Baseball after a mild blowup with the Cleveland Indians on May 17. Both benches emptied after a couple of close pitches but nobody was hit. The only fine levied was against Maddon, for supposedly inciting the situation. "That's totally unjust," the manager said yesterday.

Joe Blanton and Shane Victorino have explained their recent transgressions differently, in ways that suited their personalities. After every poor outing this season, Blanton stood in the Phillies' locker room and quietly said he expected to improve. Victorino, thrown out attempting to steal second with none out and Matt Stairs batting in the ninth inning of the Phils' 5-3 loss Monday, bounced around the clubhouse that night and the day after, chirping amiably at reporters and attempting to explain the play to skeptical teammates.

Just before the bottom of the 11th inning, Cody Ross turned to teammate Dan Uggla on the bench and gave him a few choice words. "This is the inning," Ross said he told him. "I feel it. I usually don't say stuff like that. " Uggla did his part to make the prediction come true, hitting a game-ending RBI single that gave the Florida Marlins a come-from-behind, 9-8 victory over the visiting Houston Astros last night for their fifth straight win. Chris Coghlan started the inning with a walk off Wesley Wright (2-2)

Todd Helton received a lengthy standing ovation from fans and his teammates after smacking his 500th career double. That was simply a warmup act. Helton followed up the milestone double by hitting the go-ahead homer in the eighth inning, propelling the Colorado Rockies to a 4-3 win over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday. "It was a good day," he said. A good day, indeed. Yet the ever-modest Helton downplayed the landmark hit. The homer was a different story.

ALTHOUGH Marcell Ozuna's 16-game hitting streak was snapped on Saturday, Miami's 22-year-old rookie outfielder bounced back in a big way yesterday. Ozuna had three hits, including a double and a triple, and drove in four runs to help the Marlins complete a three-game sweep over the visiting New York Mets with an 11-6 win. "I'm feeling great," Ozuna said. "Everything is going good. Whenever I cross the [white] line, I am trying to help the team. " Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer, and Ed Lucas and Chris Coghlan each had four hits and two RBI for the Marlins, who tied a season high with 16 hits and swept the Mets in Miami for the first time since May 28-30, 2004, outscoring the Mets by 24-8 in the series.

MIAMI - On the day Roy Halladay told the world he would need shoulder surgery, the Phillies lost to the San Francisco Giants. It was the first of three straight defeats. Things haven't necessarily gotten any easier lately. Carlos Ruiz also was placed on the disabled list and could be out for another month. Ryan Howard needed an MRI for a pesky left knee injury and Chase Utley will get his own MRI today on a rib cage injury that may punch him a ticket for a trip to the DL. Despite the sky falling around them in the last 2 weeks, the Phillies, remarkably, have come to life.

There's more to it than just Jack McKeon. There's the timely hitting, the stingy pitching, the proper execution with runners on base. Now matter how anyone tries to explain it, though, the Florida Marlins simply look like a new team under their old manager. Clay Hensley came off the disabled list to win his first major league start in three years and the visiting Marlins beat the New York Mets, 4-1, last night for their ninth victory in 10 games. "We're interested in winning," McKeon said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Anibal Sanchez threw a five-hitter for another complete game in San Francisco, leading the Florida Marlins to a 1-0 win Thursday over a Giants team still stunned by the loss of cleanup hitter Buster Posey. A day after the star catcher sustained a broken lower left leg when Scott Cousins crashed into him at the plate, the Marlins finished off a three-game sweep. Cousins, who lives in the Bay Area, did not play. "The sweep here against a good team is great," Florida manager Edwin Rodriguez said.

MIAMI - Logan Morrison hit a game-tying home run in the fourth inning and doubled in Florida's two-run eighth to help the Marlins beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 5-3, on Friday night. Morrison scored Florida's final run from third on a sacrifice fly to the first baseman. The Marlins fell behind, 2-0, but rallied for their 14th come-from-behind win, which tied them with Colorado for the most in the majors. Mike Stanton hit his 10th homer for Florida. Chris Coghlan, who had been in a 3-for-33 slump, had two hits and scored a run. Leo Nunez needed only seven pitches in a perfect ninth for his 16th save, the most in the major leagues.

MIAMI - Even a Gold Glove shortstop is going to make an error every once in a while. "That's going to happen," Charlie Manuel shrugged. Even a perfectly located cutter is going to fall in for a base hit from time to time. "It was a good pitch," Roy Halladay shrugged. But when a lineup is facing one of the top pitchers in the majors, it must take advantage of the few opportunities it gets. At least that was the feeling in the Phillies' clubhouse after a dramatic, 2-1 loss to Josh Johnson and the Florida Marlins last night at Sun Life Stadium.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - When Jimmy Rollins released the ball in the eighth inning, he did not know it would pull Ryan Howard off first and put the winning run on base. Before the 2-1 Phillies loss to Florida began Tuesday night, the shortstop measured the pitching matchup and this unspoken fact in both dugouts: The tiniest mistake could alter everything. It did not take much to know this - if it weren't for an error last May 29, Roy Halladay and Josh Johnson could have pitched until the sun rose at Sun Life Stadium.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - The pitching duel that fulfilled its hype was not decided on the mound. Roy Halladay and Josh Johnson experienced their hiccups but navigated this game to a tie in the eighth inning. That's when Omar Infante stepped in against Halladay and hit a 91-m.p.h. cutter to shortstop. Jimmy Rollins, one of the finest defensive shortstops in the game, bobbled the ball. He recovered but then threw wildly to first. The winning run had reached base. Every mistake, as expected, was magnified in Tuesday's 2-1 Phillies loss to the Florida Marlins at Sun Life Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - Untouchable in April, Marlins ace Josh Johnson was battered for five runs Thursday in his first start of the month as the St. Louis Cardinals beat Florida, 6-3. Matt Holliday had two hits and two RBIs, and Albert Pujols singled three times against Johnson (3-1), the National League pitcher of the month who had an 0.88 ERA in April. Holliday fought off an inside pitch for the tying hit with one out in the eighth, chasing Johnson after 114 pitches, and Lance Berkman greeted Mike Dunn with a three-run homer.
