Lehigh Valley won the most lopsided championship game in the 13-year history of the Carpenter Cup baseball tournament yesterday. Lehigh Valley got 17 hits, Berks County made seven errors, and the final at Veterans Stadium was 14-1. The previous largest margin in a title game was the Catholic League's 14-4 triumph over the South Jersey South in 1987. This was only the third time in tournament history that both finalists were from Pennsylvania. Berks was making its second championship appearance, having lost to Ocean-Monmouth, 10-5, in the 1994 final.

ALLENTOWN - Olympic Colonial bowed out of the Carpenter Cup with an 8-4 loss to Lehigh Valley in the quarterfinals Friday at Coca-Cola Park. The game was to be the first of a quarterfinal doubleheader at the home of the Phillies' triple-A affiliate, but when heavy rains and wind rolled through at 1:07 p.m., umpires ushered players off the field in the middle of the eighth inning. The game was called, and the result was final, per tournament rules. Lehigh Valley advanced to Monday's semifinals at Citizens Bank Park.

RIGHTHANDER B.J. Rosenberg cleared waivers yesterday and was outrighted to Triple A Lehigh Valley. The move leaves the Phillies with 38 players on their 40-man roster. Additional space will come within the week, when eligible players file for agency following the conclusion of the World Series. Righthanders Kyle Kendrick and Mike Adams are eligible to become free agents, along with veteran backup catcher Wil Nieves. Outfielder Grady Sizemore and righthander Jerome Williams, who both were eligible to be free agents, signed 1-year deals to return to the Phillies last week.

Eighteen hard hats and a sign reading "This office belongs to the people of the Lehigh Valley" decorate the Capitol Hill office in Washington of Rep. Don Ritter, the Lehigh University metallurgy professor who became a Republican congressman in 1978 and has held the job ever since. The scene is more philosophical in the workplace of Joseph Simonetta in Bethlehem, Pa. There, index cards bearing quotes about peace, fairness and justice - from the likes of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Camus, Thomas Edison and Victor Hugo - are taped to the basement walls of Simonetta's parents' home.

The Phillies entered Monday's game with a collection of corner outfielders who batted .188 with a .506 OPS, and sometimes it is easy to forget this was not by design. So there was Aaron Altherr, in the clubhouse Monday afternoon for a brief moment with his teammates, as a reminder of what should have been. Altherr, who tore the tendon sheath in his left wrist during spring training, was in Philadelphia for a few hours to see a doctor. The 25-year-old outfielder heard what he wanted: He can begin swinging a bat in two weeks.

WASHINGTON - The Phillies intended for Charlie Morton to be a stabilizing force in the middle of a young rotation. But Morton carried an extensive history of injuries. And less than a month into the season, the Phillies could be without Morton for quite some time. The team declined Tuesday to detail the results of a Monday examination on Morton's strained left hamstring, only to say it did not go well. "I really don't know what the next step is," Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said.

Hillary Clinton plans to speak at the Convention Center on Tuesday after results in the five-state "Acela primary" become clear. She'll be on a stage about seven miles from the site of the Democratic convention in July. Coincidence? Hardly. Clinton hopes to reinforce the message she's been sending for the last week: The nomination fight with Sen. Bernie Sanders is over. She won't say it, of course - focusing instead on GOP opponents Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz - but the setting and the expected results could speak loudly enough.

MILWAUKEE - Before Hector Neris' final outing in the Grapefruit League, Pete Mackanin pulled catcher J.P. Arencibia aside. The Phillies manager had instructions last month in Fort Myers, Fla. "I want to see three out of four splits," Mackanin told Arencibia. "I want to force him to throw it. " This season, Neris has thrown his splitter more than any other pitch. There have not been many Phillies bullpen revelations in the first month of games, but Neris is one. He is unscored upon with 17 strikeouts and three walks in 101/3 innings.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - That Brock Stassi lingered in big-league camp as long as he did indicates what kind of impression he made on Phillies officials. Stassi, 26, is not considered a prospect. He repeated double-A Reading last season, and an adjustment to his swing contributed to a vast improvement in 2015 at the plate. After 25 at-bats in Grapefruit League games, he's at least entered the equation for a potential call-up if injury strikes. On Saturday, the Phillies sent Stassi and infielder Taylor Featherston to minor-league camp.
