Roy Oswalt pitched a dominating eight innings in Game 2 as the Phillies beat Jonathan Sanchez and the Giants, 6-1, on Sunday night at Citizens Bank Park. That victory tied the NL Championship Series at 1-1. The rematch is tomorrow in Game 6 at The Bank. Oswalt and the Phillies will try to do the same things - win the game and tie the series. In Game 2, the Phillies led, 2-1, through six innings before scoring four runs in the seventh. Oswalt was central in that inning, as he singled to lead off and eventually scored on Placido Polanco's single.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Texas Rangers will go into Game 4 of the World Series trailing the San Francisco Giants. They have the option of pitching their ace, Cliff Lee , on short rest in Game 4. But no one was discussing the possibility before Saturday's Game 3. Sound familiar? Once again, it's time to debate the merits of starting Lee on three days' rest. The Phillies decided against it in 2009. Texas manager Ron Washington didn't exactly close the door on the possibility before Game 3. "Well, there's a chance that anything could happen," Washington said.

What we're talking about after the Giants defeated the Phillies, 3-0, to lead the National League Championship Series, two games to one: The Phillies find themselves down, two games to one, in the best-of-seven NLCS and the next two games are at AT&T Park. What makes this a little alarming is that the Phillies' Big Three starters - Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Cole Hamels - were the biggest reason the Phils were widely expected to beat the Giants. But they were outpitched by Tim Lincecum, Jonathan Sanchez and especially Matt Cain in the first round of matchups.

The second baseman needed a few more inches. The centerfielder needed a few more feet. And the first and third basemen would have benefited from even a millimeter of open space. But none of those Phillies measured up to their third-inning challenges. The San Francisco Giants capitalized by scoring a pair of runs to tie the score en route to their 3-2 Game 6 win that gave them the National League Championship Series victory Saturday night. It was a sudden reversal of third-inning fortune for the Phillies, who, in the same frame of Game 5, had taken advantage of poorly executed Giants defense and some good luck to score three times in a 4-2 victory.

Just about the only certainty in the 2010 Phillies' starting rotation is that Roy Halladay will take the ball every fifth day and deliver a performance likely to keep his team in the game. Now even that has failed the Phillies. Halladay allowed five runs to the Giants - one more than his season total entering the game - and the Phillies lost for the third time in four games, 5-1, Monday at AT&T Park. While his team scuffled in Arizona over the weekend, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel observed that his offense was having difficulty scoring after it dominated opposing pitching at will in the first weeks of the season.

The pitchers mound at Citizens Bank Park will be an exclusive neighborhood tonight. Phillies starter Pedro Martinez has three Cy Young Awards on his mantel. San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum has one - and he might pick up another in a couple of months. Though at opposite ends of their careers - Martinez is 37; Lincecum is 25 - the two pitchers have similarities. Both are righthanders with slight builds and whip-like arm action. In his prime, Martinez would heat his fastball up to 97 m.p.h.

Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum asked for a record $13 million in salary arbitration yesterday, while the San Francisco Giants offered their ace $8 million. Lincecum is seeking the richest contract ever awarded in arbitration, surpassing the $10 million that Alfonso Soriano (2006) and Francisco Rodriguez (2008) got after losing cases and Ryan Howard got after winning his in 2008. If Lincecum and the Giants don't settle, an arbitration panel will hold a hearing next month and pick one of the salaries.

  The long-ball whisperer Dodgers leftfielder Russ Mitchell had been 0 for 15 heading into a 10-2 loss late Thursday at San Francisco. Leading off the fifth, he hit a long shot off Jonathan Sanchez that was heading toward the left-field foul pole. If he'd been playing pool, this would have been the time for some exaggerated body English (handy when the spin English on the ball isn't dialed in) to coax the ball inside, but instead he used good, old-fashioned mouth English.

Major League Baseball has suspended Pirates lefty Jonathan Sanchez for six games and fined him an undisclosed amount for beaning the Cardinals' Allen Craig in Friday's 9-1 loss. Sanchez has appealed the suspension, but maybe the Bucs should consider keeping him off the mound. He has allowed 16 runs on 21 hits and five walks in just 111/3 innings this season. And on Friday, he didn't get a single out, and served up back-to-back homers to Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran, and a single to Matt Holliday before he threw at Craig's head.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tony Sipp balked home the go-ahead run with the bases loaded in the seventh inning, giving the San Francisco Giants a 1-0 victory over the error-prone Cleveland Indians on Saturday for their fourth straight victory. Sipp flinched his left arm before even throwing a pitch to Emmanuel Burriss, allowing Miguel Tejada to score from third. Second baseman Cord Phelps made two errors in the inning to spoil a strong start by Justin Masterson (5-6). Matt Cain (7-4) pitched seven-plus innings of four-hit ball in another strong outing for San Francisco.

SAN FRANCISCO - Ryan Vogelsong was still soaking in his first major-league victory in almost five years, humbled and overwhelmed after what felt like a lifetime of trying to re-create the moment. San Francisco Giants teammate Aubrey Huff was standing a few lockers over and asked him what all the fuss was about. "I'm thinking, 'My gosh, time flies doesn't it?' " Huff said. " 'Cause it seems like I just faced you in Pittsburgh.' Vogelsong said, 'Well, maybe for you time flew. Not for me.' " Certainly not. Vogelsong's pitching career had come close to ending countless times.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Pat Burrell walked into the visitors' clubhouse at Rangers Ballpark holding a half-full Bud Light bottle. He saw the mass of reporters and cameras circled around his locker and smiled. "Are you looking for me?" he asked. Burrell put the beer down on a nearby table, stood in the middle of the room, and answered questions about his four-strikeout game as the symbolic offender on a night the San Francisco Giants' offense went back to simply being normal in a 4-2 loss Saturday to the Texas Rangers in Game 3 of the World Series.

Cody Ross admitted he was playing in a lot of pain. He was hit in the right forearm just above the wrist by a pitch in Wednesday's Game 4 win, bruising the bone badly enough to warrant X-rays. He played hurt Thursday and hit an RBI double off Roy Halladay. "Nothing is going to keep me out, but it's swelled up pretty good, and it's bruised up, but it's not broke," Ross said. "I'm definitely going to play. I'm going to fight through it. " Thursday's double might have been his most encouraging at-bat of the series.

San Francisco Giants lefthander Jonathan Sanchez knows the Phillies have a plan for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. He has one, too. "They're taking pitches," Sanchez said of the Phillies. "They're going to wait for me to be in the zone. I'm just going to get up and be aggressive in the zone. " Sanchez's command on Saturday could be the key to the game, the series and the season. The 27-year-old has some of the best stuff in baseball. He struck out 205 during the regular season.

SAN FRANCISCO - The subtle change that took place in AT&T Park on Thursday night, almost lost amid the din and the towel waving and the amazingly clutch 4-2 win by the Phillies, just might have been baseball beginning to turn its back on the San Francisco Giants. These things don't always follow through, and the Phils are still deep in the woods of the National League Championship Series ? their next loss is their last, with two games potentially remaining ? but after a couple days of making the game look hard, things got easier.
