The Texas Rangers won the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes, acquiring the Chicago Cubs ace for two minor leaguers moments before Tuesday's trade deadline. Kansas City reliever Jonathan Broxton also went from an also-ran to a contender, going to the Cincinnati Reds. Matt Garza and Josh Johnson stayed put for now as the window closed for clubs to make trades without having players pass through waivers. Four days after the AL West rival Los Angeles Angels acquired former Cy Young Award winner Zack Geinke, the Rangers obtained Dempster for infielder Christian Villanueva and pitcher Kyle Hendricks.

THE PLAY: As goes Jimmy Rollins, so go the Phillies. And he has them one step closer to going back to the World Series with what has to be the most clutch hit of his 10-year career. THE SETUP: His team trailing, 4-3, with one out in the bottom of the ninth and facing Jonathan Broxton, pinch-hitter Matt Stairs, who killed the Dodgers with a pinch-homer in last year's NLCS, began last night's comeback with a walk. With Eric Bruntlett pinch-running, Carlos Ruiz was hit by a pitch. After Greg Dobbs lined out to third, Rollins took center stage.

Joe Torre said he met with Jonathan Broxton immediately after Game 4 and again yesterday, mainly to reiterate his faith in the young closer. Broxton might have needed the boost, since he now has seen the Phillies score the game-winning runs twice with him on the mound, first in Game 4 of the 2008 National League Championship Series, then again Monday. "This kid, this closing thing, this is something new to him," Torre said. "I did this role last year," said a sullen Broxton, 25, who has logged 50 of the 55 saves to his credit in the past two seasons, and has pitched in 308 major league games.

LOS ANGELES - The Dodgers almost gave 21-year-old Clayton Kershaw the ball for their first playoff start. He'd helped clinch the division a few days before, a six-inning shutdown of the Rockies. But that was not a microscope game. So, they went with veteran lefthander Randy Wolf. "We felt the veteran could handle the hoopla," manager Joe Torre said. Wolf gave up five walks and six hits in less than four innings. He surrendered only two runs and the Dodgers won, but when Kershaw gave up two runs and came within an out from going seven innings the next game, Kershaw had earned the right to become the staff's No. 1 pitcher.

Facing 6-foot-4, 290-pound reliever Jonathan Broxton will not be new for the Phillies. They have seen the 100-m.p.h. fireballer three times this season. He earned a save in the first game, was the winning pitcher in the second, and blew a save in the third.

NEW YORK - Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa are listed on the baseball Hall of Fame ballot for the first time, setting up an election sure to become a referendum on the Steroids Era. The 37-player ballot was announced Wednesday. More than 600 longtime members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America will vote through next month. Candidates need 75 percent for induction, and the results will be announced Jan. 9. Bonds is the all-time home run champion with 762 and won a record seven MVP awards.

Crazy night in LaLa Land At least three stories emerged from Tuesday night's old-fashioned Dodgers-Giants beanball battle. First was the five-game suspension handed down by MLB disciplinarian Bob Watson to Los Angeles pitcher Clayton Kershaw for throwing at our old friend Aaron Rowand in the 7-5 San Francisco victory. Dodgers manager Joe Torre and bench coach Bob Schaefer also were tagged with one-game suspensions. Second was the hit Don Mattingly's impending managerial career took after Torre got the hook.

The stakes were different Thursday night but the setting, for Jonathan Broxton, was eerily similar. In 2009, Broxton blew a save in Game 4 of the NLCS, extending the Phillies' series lead to three games to one. And on Thursday in his first trip back to Citizens Bank Park, Broxton gave the Fightin's yet another memorable moment. Entering the ninth inning with a three-run cushion, Broxton faced five batters, retired none, and was done when Carlos Ruiz doubled to left-center, driving in two runs to give the Phillies a 10-9 victory.

THE PHILLIES handed Jimmy Rollins a pair of suitcases last night, but it's not what you think. They were for a trip to Italy with his wife in the future, hopefully when his 15th year in a Phillies uniform concludes, after he's added to the record he set recently as the franchise hits leader, after he's played all but a handful of games of another season as the team's sometimes revered, sometimes reviled, always electric shortstop. Still, Rollins looked a little awkward, his eldest daughter Camryn in his arms, as team vice president Michael Stiles wheeled the luggage toward the pregame home-plate ceremony.

The Pittsburgh Pirates got by the Reds on Sunday, 5-4 in 11 innings at PNC Park, and the blame for Cincinnati's loss should be squarely pinned on a familiar name to Philadelphia fans: Jonathan Broxton. Ahead by 4-2 in the eighth, the Reds brought in the big guy (who is best remembered around here for giving up a monstrous and decisive homer to the Phillies' Matt Stairs in the 2008 NL Championship Series vs. the Dodgers) to preserve the lead for Mat Latos, who was looking to improve to 6-0. Broxton promptly plunked Starling Marte but then temporarily redeemed himself by getting Neil Walker to hit into a double play.

Ever since ballparks became food courts with dugouts, teams seemingly have competed to sell the grossest items their caterers can concoct. This one might be it. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Lake County Captains of the Class A Midwest League are selling a gigantic fish sandwich they call the "Moby Dick. " The 4,000-calorie beast consists of five quarter-pound fish fillets, eight slices of cheese, six ounces of clam strips, a third of a pound of French fries, a cup of coleslaw, plus lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and tartar sauce.

JOHAN SANTANA AND the New York Mets were amply pleased with his latest outing. The lefthander who missed the entire major league season last year after shoulder surgery pitched 2 2/3 innings without allowing an earned run yesterday in the Mets' rain-shortened 4-2 loss to the Miami Marlins. The game was called after the fifth inning. Miami shortstop Jose Reyes, who left the Mets to sign with the Marlins in the offseason, did not make the trip. "We're still building up pitches," Santana said.

Inside the Phillies CLEARWATER, Fla. - It was late September 2003, and the Phillies were playing Juan Pierre's Florida Marlins at whatever that football stadium in South Florida was called at the time. The Phillies trailed the Marlins by one game in the National League wild-card race when they arrived. After the Marlins won the second game of the series to all but assure themselves of a spot in the playoffs, Pierre glanced into the visitors' dugout and was amused by what he saw. "I forget exactly how we won, but Larry Bowa threw his scorecard, and all these other papers just started flying all over the dugout," Pierre said, a huge smile crossing his face.

Jaime Garcia carried a perfect game into the eighth inning and finished with a two-hitter, dominating the visiting Milwaukee Brewers in a 6-0 victory for the St. Louis Cardinals last night. Garcia (4-0) issued a four-pitch walk to Casey McGehee with one out in the eighth. On the next pitch, Yuniesky Betancourt grounded a solid single to left to end the no-hit bid. Garcia threw a four-hit shutout to beat the Padres in his first start, but hadn't gone longer than six innings in any of his next five outings.

Major League Baseball believes the Los Angeles Dodgers do not have enough money to make their end of May payroll, a person familiar with the team's finances told the Associated Press. The person spoke yesterday on condition of anonymity because MLB's investigation of the team's finances under owner Frank McCourt is ongoing. The Los Angeles Times first reported that the Dodgers lacked the cash to make their May 31 payroll. The person said that if the Dodgers don't have the money, MLB would make payroll.
