Lehigh Valley defeated Burlington County, 5-3, yesterday in the Carpenter Cup championship game at Citizens Bank Park. It was the third title for Lehigh Valley, which also won in 2001 and 1998. More than 400 high school students participated in the 26th annual Phillies Baseball Carpenter Cup, a 15-game tournament that included play at FDR Park and, for the first time, Coca-Cola Park, home of the Triple A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

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.

He also had a homer in the second for the IronPigs' first run. Lehigh Valley won Thursday's Game 1, 4-2, in Coca-Cola Park.

It was a phone call that Adam Morgan said he had dreamed about: calling his father to tell him he was headed to the major leagues. His father, Wiley, pitched at Alabama and coached Morgan until he was 13. That dream became reality on Friday, when Morgan called his father to tell him he was pitching Sunday for the Phillies. "He was like, 'Well that's one hell of a Father's Day present,' " Morgan said before Saturday's game against St. Louis. "He couldn't believe it. It's really special.

Cole Hamels says he hopes to make his next start and unlike Thursday, this was no prank. Hamels missed Friday's start with the St. Louis Cardinals with a mild right hamstring strain. He has his eye toward his next start Wednesday against the host New York Yankees. "I'll throw a bullpen on Sunday and go back to my normal day start on Wednesday; that is the plan," Hamels said before Friday's game. Of course, much will depend on how he feels after the bullpen session on Sunday. Hamels insists that he wasn't going on the disabled list and says he is feeling much better.

ALLENTOWN - A clubhouse attendant asked Chase d'Arnaud if he had good handwriting on Thursday night as two disco balls shined a rainbow of colors through the Lehigh Valley clubhouse. He wanted d'Arnaud to take a Sharpie and inscribe the game ball from Aaron Nola's first start with the IronPigs, a good-as-advertised, five-inning scoreless outing in a 3-0 win over the Buffalo Bisons. Nola struck out seven batters and walked just one. He scattered four hits and threw 98 pitches, 66 of which were for strikes.

WHEN THE Phillies finished off their 2-1 win yesterday and the media was allowed into the clubhouse, the locker stall in the back left corner of the room was empty. There was no No. 35 plate with the name "Cole Hamels" on it. No contents in the locker. The team announced before yesterday's game that Hamels would be scratched from tonight's start against St. Louis with a "mild right hamstring strain. " But had the Phillies' ace been traded? Apparently not, though no one in the clubhouse owned up to playing a prank.

ALLENTOWN - Aaron Nola drove to Allentown on Monday afternoon, officially beginning the next stage of his baseball career. The Phillies' top pitching prospect dominated at the double-A level. The Phillies promoted him Sunday to triple A. It was time for a new test. "I'm ready to get things started," Nola said before Lehigh Valley's game Monday night. "I'm ready to learn more of the game. I feel like I'm going to learn more over here. There's a lot of older guys. I'm going to keep my ears open and my eyes open.

CINCINNATI - Needing a starting pitcher who could better preserve the bullpen and not wanting to push the development of their prospects, the Phillies went outside the organization to fill their rotation. Kevin Correia joined them Monday at Great American Ball Park after signing a major-league contract for the remainder of the season. A 34-year-old righthander with 12 years of big-league experience, Correia will start Friday in the series opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

CINCINNATI - David Buchanan lasted no longer than the season's first month, and severely sprained his right ankle shortly after joining Triple A Lehigh Valley. Chad Billingsley joined the major league rotation a month ago, but his stay lasted all of three starts because of shoulder discomfort. He isn't likely to return before July. Severino Gonzalez has been tearing up mileage on the Northeast Extension, shuttling to and from the big leagues and the minor leagues. Cliff Lee hasn't been heard from since March, and is a longshot ever to throw another major league pitch.

Justin De Fratus remembers Marlon Byrd pulling him aside last April after De Fratus was demoted to the minors. The veteran outfielder told De Fratus to be mad. This was his time to be angry, Byrd told him. "But when you get there tomorrow, it's time to work," Byrd told De Fratus. De Fratus passed along that advice on Thursday night to Jake Diekman after the lefthanded reliever was optioned to triple-A Lehigh Valley. Diekman is one of De Fratus' best friends. He said he has no doubt that Diekman will respond to being sent down.

ALLENTOWN - The lineup card posted outside triple-A Lehigh Valley's clubhouse on Tuesday night had "Brown" scribbled into the No. 3 spot. Domonic Brown - the Phillies' former top prospect - was set to play right field. Another day brought another minor-league game for Brown. The outfielder said he has accepted that he could spend the rest of the season with the IronPigs. A promotion to the Phillies would be a "positive," he said, but it does not sound as if he expects one. "I'm not in here just looking to be in Philly every day," Brown said before the game was rained out. "Nah, I'm coming in here to play.

The Phillies' pitching depth took a pair of hits Sunday. Chad Billingsley was placed on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder and David Buchanan was carted off the field after hurting his right leg while fielding a ground ball for triple-A Lehigh Valley. Billingsley will miss his scheduled start Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. A likely candidate to start for him is righthander Severino Gonzalez, who is slated to pitch Wednesday in triple A. Friday was Billingsley's third and best start of the season.
