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.

Two Phillies pitchers fired eight straight balls with the bases loaded, and that represented the nadir of Tuesday night. A rookie wearing No. 67 relieved them in the next inning, committed a balk, and surrendered two more runs. This is what September baseball looks like for the pitching staff with the National League's worst ERA. Washington permitted four unearned runs to the Phillies and still won, 9-6, because the home team failed at the game's most basic task of throwing strikes.

The Phillies optioned lefthander Raul Valdes to Lehigh Valley and called up righthander B.J. Rosenberg from the IronPigs. Valdes may have sealed his fate when he allowed a three-run home run to Jason Kipnis in Wednesday's 10-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The 32-year-old Valdes had a 7.65 ERA in 10 appearances this season for the Phillies. Rosenberg was 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in seven starts for Lehigh Valley this season. Last season he split time with Reading, Lehigh Valley and the Phillies.
