This is perhaps the biggest reason these Phillies might not be flukes: When they need a well-pitched game, there's a fine chance they will get one. Last night, the Phils were coming off an ugly loss on Tuesday and anticipating a three-game weekend series in Atlanta, which can leave any team badly chopped. So Tommy Greene, despite a late-inning salvo of line drives, threw nine strong innings, limiting the Pittsburgh Pirates to five hits and a single run in a 4-1, rain-delayed Phillies' victory.

The Phillies have survived the losses of several key players and enjoyed what to this point has been a surprisingly successful season. Now comes the biggest challenge of all. One month to the day after starting for the National League in the All-Star Game, Curt Schilling was placed on the disabled list last night with inflammation in his right shoulder. The 32-year-old righthander, who has been plagued by this problem for more than a month, will return to Philadelphia today for concentrated therapy.

The Eagles casually announced yesterday that Corey Simon's trip to the foot doctor in Maryland on Monday revealed that the starting defensive tackle has plantar fasciitis and that he will not play in tomorrow's exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. An ominous development for a team already decimated by injuries? Not according to Mark Myerson, the foot specialist who treated Simon. "His foot was very inflamed," Myerson said last night by cell phone. "He'll be back in training next week.

Question: What causes my urine to have a lot of foam? Is it serious? Answer: Have you ever had lemon meringue pie? Those tall peaks of frothy white that make up meringue are made from two simple ingredients: sugar and egg whites. When whipped, egg whites will at first foam, and then stiffen into white peaks with continued beating. That's a result of the unique properties of the albumin protein of egg whites. It's normal to have a trace of protein in standing urine, which foams like meringue as the urine mixes with the water in the toilet.

Tim Lynch has a theory about why he beat the brutal brain cancer glioblastoma. Even with intensive treatment, the average survival is about 15 months. As the tumor grows, it destroys the very abilities that define people as human - thinking, feeling, communicating. Brittany Maynard, who at age 29 became the face of the right-to-die movement, was so determined to cut short the inevitable horror that she ended her life with a lethal prescription this month in Oregon, 10 months after her glioblastoma diagnosis.

Auggie, a 11/2-year-old male Jack Russell terrier, presented to our clinic with muscle tremors. The owners first noticed the tremors the previous evening, when the dog appeared to have tripped on the stairs. Fine muscle tremors, primarily in the buttocks, were apparent on physical exam. The neutered dog showed no pain upon palpation of his spine and manipulation of his neck and limbs but seemed somewhat stiff. He was well hydrated and pulse was normal. "This is the calmest Jack Russell I've ever seen," I said several times, perhaps ominously.

Patients with eczema tend to start itching before they see a rash, rather than the other way around, leading some to call it "the itch that rashes. " So what is this invisible agent that causes the itch? Herbert B. Allen has been scratching his head over that one for years, but recently the Drexel University dermatologist achieved a measure of intellectual relief. He and a team of colleagues at Drexel's College of Medicine report that the culprit is a slime-like substance called biofilm, produced by Staphylococcus bacteria on the skin.

HE HASN'T PITCHED in his first professional game yet. The Phillies spent a 17th-round draft pick to select him out of the University of Nebraska in 2010 even though his career earned run average was 4.72, his mechanics were a mess and, oh yes, he had just had Tommy John elbow surgery. Righthander Mike Nesseth, who has been working out ever since signing last summer, started an extended spring game earlier this week. As it happened, his catcher was Carlos Ruiz, playing himself back into shape after sitting out with lower back inflammation.

Dajuan Wagner says he never frets over the misfortune that followed him once he left Camden High School as perhaps the best basketball player in New Jersey history. From the stomach aches during his one year at the University of Memphis - omens of a life-threatening condition that would require radical surgery - to the bladder infection to the twice-torn knee cartilage to the inflamed liver and pancreas to the ankle ailments to the hip injury, Wagner sometimes seemed as cursed in his post-scholastic career as he was blessed during his prime time with the Panthers.
