In Cory Lidle's first three starts for the Phillies, many fans wondered why the club's scouts and general manager Ed Wade were so enamored of the veteran righthander. Yesterday, before the 40th sellout crowd at Citizens Bank Park, they found out. Lidle, 0-2 with an 8.16 ERA in his first three starts after being acquired from Cincinnati for three promising minor-leaguers, pitched a four-hit shutout in a 10-0 victory over the sad-sack Milwaukee Brewers, who have lost 11 straight.

Charlie Manuel still hates to lose. That might have been the title of Manuel's autobiography had Larry Bowa not beaten him to the punch, although to be perfectly honest, that title fits the fiery Bowa much better than the affable Manuel. But it's become clear in less than half a season that the Phillies' manager takes some losses especially hard. After a loss Wednesday in Seattle, Manuel remained on the dugout steps and stared into space for several minutes before he returned to the clubhouse.

Every time Kevin Lidle teaches a child to throw a curveball or change-up, he hears his twin brother, Cory. Grip it like this. Throw it like that. "I'll say the same words to these kids that Cory said to me," Kevin Lidle said last week at the Lakeland Baseball Academy, where he is an instructor. "He frequently pops in my head. But that's OK. It's got to be. " Cory Lidle and his flight instructor, Tyler Stanger, died Oct. 11 when Lidle's Cirrus SR-20 crashed into a building in Manhattan.

He isn't particularly big and doesn't throw very hard by major-league standards, but righthander Cory Lidle has quietly made a favorable impression during his brief stint with the Phillies. He did again last night in a 6-2 win over the Florida Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Lidle allowed two runs and nine hits in six serviceable innings, striking out one and walking two in earning the victory. It was the fourth consecutive win for the Phillies (85-75), who clinched second place in the National League East.

The Phillies understood their already dire situation before they arrived at Great American Ball Park on Monday. They needed to run the table. And even then they needed a miracle. In sixth place in the National League wild-card race and 4 1/2 games behind first-place San Francisco, the Phillies were running out of time when they opened this three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds. But time seems to finally have run out after a 7-6 loss to the Reds last night. "We played so well the last week or so before this," Phillies first baseman Jim Thome said.

The San Francisco Giants are a bad team in a bad division, and that only made it more important that the Phillies took care of business this week at SBC Park. No Barry. No problem. The Phillies beat the Giants last night, 7-4, winning two of three in the series and taking a 1 1/2-game lead over the Houston Astros in the National League wild-card race. The Phils, who remained 3 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East, are off today before opening a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

David Bell earned the result of his eight-pitch at-bat yesterday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. He also earned the Phillies a chance. After a 1-0 victory over the first-place Washington Nationals, the Phillies can win the three-game series with a victory today. It would be their first series victory since June 10-12 against the Milwaukee Brewers, consecutive victories for the first time since June 16-17 against Seattle and Oakland and some momentum before they scatter across the country for the all-star break.

The saddest cards Topps was about to print its annual Updates & Highlights set for its 2006 baseball cards when pitcher Cory Lidle lost his life in an airplane accident earlier this month. A card showing Lidle on the Yankees was planned as one of the update cards, which are due out early next month. So Topps redesigned the card to say "In Memoriam 1972-2006. " The only other time the company has done such a card was the 1964 Ken Hubbs. Hubbs, the 1962 National League rookie of the year for the Cubs, died in February before the 1964 season, in a crash while flying his private plane.

With less than four weeks remaining in the baseball season, the Boston Red Sox still aren't sure when their ace will return to the mound. Pedro Martinez, who missed his turn in the rotation last night against the New York Yankees because of an injury, played catch Monday for the first time since starting against the Yankees on Aug. 28. It's not clear what Martinez's injury is. He said his groin is bothering him, even when he walks. But manager Grady Little said the injury is originating in the hip. The San Francisco Giants reacquired infielder Bill Mueller from the Chicago Cubs for minor-league pitcher Jeff Verplancke.

ST. LOUIS - It's official now. Cliff Lee is pitching like the celebrated ace the Phillies signed him to be. Fans may have suspected as much during the last homestand, when he strung together three straight superb performances, allowing one run and 13 hits in 24 innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, and Florida Marlins. But in order for Lee to truly prove he was in domination mode again, he had to duplicate those efforts on the road. Consider it done.

YOU DON'T GET this in the American League, where designated hitters bat for pitchers. On a night when he systematically mowed down the Washington Nationals from the mound, Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels was more excited about the two hits he got rather than the few he gave up. "Oh, most definitely the two I got," said Hamels, who had a triple and a single in the Phillies' 4-1 victory. "Being a pitcher, you're not supposed to be able to hit. "It's been a lot of hard work.

A lawyer has told a jury that New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle would still be alive if the steering mechanism in a small airplane he was flying in October 2006 had not failed, causing him to crash into a Manhattan building. California attorney Todd Macaluso said in Manhattan federal court yesterday that Lidle and his instructor were killed because Cirrus Design Corp., of Duluth, Minn., failed to properly design the aircraft. A federal safety panel concluded that the crash occurred because Lidle and his instructor misjudged a turn.

A dentist to the rich and famous has filed a $7 million lawsuit against the estate of late New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle, claiming his Manhattan home was destroyed when the ballplayer's small airplane crashed into his apartment building. Dr. Lawrence Rosenthal says in court papers that after Lidle's Cirrus SR-20 aircraft crashed into the building where he lived with his wife and teenage son, they had to vacate their 43rd-floor apartment. Rosenthal, whose patients include Donald Trump, Bruce Springsteen and Catherine Zeta-Jones, said his apartment suffered "severe damage, including broken windows, smoke damage, loose bricks and extensive other damage" that forced them out. The plane, with Lidle and flight instructor Tyler Stanger aboard, hit the Upper East Side building on the 30th floor, 13 floors below Rosenthal's apartment, on Oct 11. Lidle, 34, and Stanger, 26, were killed in the crash.
