Just four years after it started opening Bottom Dollar discount groceries in and around Philadelphia, Europe's Delhaize grocery group has put its 46 Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley stores up for sale, along with 20 more in the Pittsburgh and northwestern Ohio regions, Food Trade News reports, citing rival grocers who have received bid invitations.

When a team commits six errors, walks 10 batters, and strikes out 15 times, it cannot expect to win an all-star baseball game. That is what Catholic League coach John Mooney said yesterday after his team self-destructed and dropped an 8-6 decision to Lehigh Valley in the Carpenter Cup Classic quarterfinals at Veterans Stadium. A critical two-base error with two outs led to two decisive unearned runs by Lehigh Valley in the eighth inning. The Catholic League yielded a total of six unearned runs and squandered a 5-2 lead as Lehigh Valley advanced to tomorrow's semifinals against Mercer County at noon.

A young and inexperienced Abington Ghosts football team learned an important lesson in Saturday night's contest against Parkland: Big plays can kill you. The host Trojans bolted to a 32-0 lead en route to a 39-20 victory in the season-opening game for both schools. Parkland was led by Matt Thomas (14 carries, 105 yards), while Jim Johnson's 59 yards on 11 carries paced Abington. The game was the second half of the Kaylee Kickoff Classic and gave Lehigh Valley schools a sweep for the evening.

WHEN BEN REVERE slapped Nick Greenwood's 89-mph sinker to leftfield in yesterday's seventh inning at Citizens Bank Park, it signified the centerfielder's 26th multihit performance in his last 51 games. It also propelled him into a tie in the race for the National League batting title. With two more hits yesterday, Revere upped his average to .314, the same mark with which Colorado's Justin Morneau entered the day. Morneau was given the day off in the Rockies' home win against the Marlins that started just after the Phillies capped their 7-1 win over the Cardinals.

Infielder Freddy Galvis, whose season was delayed when he contracted MRSA in March, was recalled by the Phillies from triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies designated infielder Reid Brignac for assignment. The fact that Galvis is a switch-hitter factored in the decision. Brignac bats lefthanded. "With our infield being lefthanded hitters and Reid being a lefthanded bat, it was tough to get him some spots," manager Ryne Sandberg said before Saturday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the St. Louis Cardinals.
