READING - Phillies second baseman Chase Utley went 0 for 5 Thursday on the second day of his rehabilitation assignment at double-A Reading, but he allowed for the possibility that he would be activated Friday for the weekend series with the New York Mets. He played the entire game in a 5-2 loss to the Portland Sea Dogs at FirstEnergy Stadium. Utley, who had been on the disabled list since May 23 with a strained right oblique muscle, swung freely and hit the ball hard in his final two times up, lining to left field in the seventh inning and flying out to deep right to end the game.

THE SOUTH STREET jewelry-store owner was shaking in the darkness, a pillowcase over his head and his body tied up by a team of armed, masked men. The bandits then ordered Mustapha Abdallah, 27, owner of VIP Jewelers, to kneel and say a Muslim prayer, according to a store manager, who declined to give his name to reporters yesterday. They wanted him to say the prayer "to finish him off," the manager said. They wanted to scare him into giving them the keys to the store, he added.

Charlie Manuel said two months ago that he'd probably be back with the Phillies before the start of spring training after being fired as the team's manager in August. Now, it appears it will soon become official. WPEN-FM (97.5) reported Wednesday that Manuel has accepted an invitation to rejoin the team. Citing a source, CSNPhilly.com said that the winningest manager in club history would be a senior adviser to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. That report said Manuel would work with minor-league hitters, evaluate minor-league players, and handle some scouting assignments.

WASHINGTON - Just when the Washington Nationals were showing signs of success and stability, along came the surprise announcement that manager Jim Riggleman was quitting because he wasn't happy with his contract. The Nationals completed a sweep of the Seattle Mariners on Thursday afternoon, winning, 1-0, in the bottom of the ninth on Laynce Nix's sacrifice fly. They have won 11 of 12 and have moved above .500 this late in the season for the first time since 2005. But no one was talking about Jason Marquis' awesome slider after general manager Mike Rizzo delivered the news of Riggleman's exit to the players in the clubhouse after the game.
