LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Louisiana State's athleticism was too much for St. Joseph's Thursday night in the nightcap of the Old Spice Classic at ESPN's Wide World of Sports. Add that to LSU's red-hot start, and it was all the Hawks could do to keep this one close, falling to the SEC Tigers, 82-65. St. Joe's itself has a reputation as an athletic team, but head coach Phil Martelli disputed that notion. "Because we have a guy that jumps really high, we have a lot of people that think we can match," Martelli said.

For the first two innings of Friday's baseball game, West Chester East's bats were asleep, trailing Ches-Mont rival Avon Grove, 4-0. The alarm went off in the bottom of the third when the Vikings scored five runs, lifting the hosts to a 6-4 win. Pat Kelley drove in a pair of the Vikings' runs in the inning, thanks to a double. Tom Luckner started the game on the hill for West Chester East, surrendering four runs, but still earned the victory. Ben Foti took the mound for the Vikings in the fourth and tossed two innings of shutout ball to shut the door on any potential comeback that the visitors had planned.

As Germantown Friends baseball coach Tim Gunn handed his boss a championship plaque Saturday, the dramatic end-of-the-season words didn't quite flow. "Tim, I . . . uhhh . . . need to talk to you about one thing," GFS athletic director Katie Bergstrom said, searching for the right words. "I needed to ummm . . . let you know that . . . uhhh . . .

ST. LOUIS - A.J. Burnett and the Phillies have had quite a turnaround since the righthander's last start. With Burnett pitching his first complete game since August, the Phillies defeated the Cardinals, 5-1, Friday at Busch Stadium in a game delayed 50 minutes at the start due to rain. The Phillies (34-38) have now won five in a row, all on the road. The last loss was Sunday's 3-0 defeat to the visiting Chicago Cubs, with Burnett the losing pitcher. Since then, the Phillies have enjoyed their best stretch of the season, sweeping the Atlanta Braves and now winning the first two of a four-game series in St. Louis.

Rookie coach Dave Hakstol selected Michal Neuvirth to start the Flyers' latest critical game, but the goalie was unable to play Saturday against Pittsburgh because of a mysterious illness or injury. Neuvirth played brilliantly on Wednesday in a 3-2 win in Chicago; it was his first game since he missed a scheduled March 12 start because of a stomach virus. Oddly, general manager Ron Hextall, when asked if Neuvirth was sidelined Saturday because of an injury or illness, replied, "we will know [Sunday]

The Flyers, coming off two straight one-goal losses, will face one of the many teams they are chasing in the wild-card hunt, Boston, on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. "We've got to be better than we have been the last couple games," winger Wayne Simmonds said Sunday after practice in Voorhees. "We've been out of sorts a bit. We haven't been playing 60-minute hockey. We've been playing here and there, but not the full games. " Before losing to Toronto and Pittsburgh, the Flyers were on a 5-0-1 run. In the last two games, they were outscored at even strength by a combined 5-1 margin, and they allowed a total of 80 shots.

AFTER THE Flyers got off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate - ahead of their game with the Buffalo Sabres - Sean Couturier made his way to his locker stall a little bit later than most of the group. He was straggling behind after doing a little more skating since he remained out of Tuesday's lineup. Couturier was on the ice for only the second time since being struck by Boston's Zac Rinaldo last Wednesday. He had also practiced Friday. The Flyers listed him as day-to-day with an "upper-body" injury since that night in Boston, but Couturier revealed Tuesday afternoon that he was indeed concussed, the first time in his career.

Knowing how to say goodbye to Chase Utley would be a lot easier if he ever really said hello. In that case, there would be stories to tell from his 13 seasons, and insights from across the years that would help put his place in franchise history into perspective. There would be emotions and feeling and the poignant sense that someone we knew so well was moving on. That wasn't the deal Utley made with Philadelphia, however, and, hometown or not, it's not the one he will make with Los Angeles, either.

Brandon Staub painted a quiet masterpiece. The Cinnaminson High junior lefthander didn't pop his catcher's glove with a loud fastball. He didn't power his way through the Holy Cross lineup. "He did what he does," Cinnaminson coach Kevin Merrill said after Staub led the visiting Pirates to a 5-0 victory over Holy Cross on Tuesday in a key Burlington County League Patriot Division baseball game. Staub pitched a complete game, allowing just four hits with one walk as Cinnaminson won the battle of neighborhood rivals and teams in The Inquirer's Top 20 rankings.
