Mike Williams is getting another chance to prove he can pitch in the big leagues. The 6-3 righthander, who is 15-1 the last two years at Triple A Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre but was a disappointment with the Phils last season, has been called up to replace reliever Larry Andersen, who was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a sore elbow. General manager Lee Thomas made the move yesterday shortly before the Phils' 5-1 exhibition loss to the Red Barons at Lackawanna County Stadium.

It was like watching Bill Bixby in a production of King Lear. But only for awhile. Mike Williams, who seemed to be out of his league in the first round, came back to give Philadelphia's Tim Witherspoon all he could handle before losing a tough decision in a 10-round heavyweight bout last night at Resorts International Casino Hotel. Judge Eva Shain scored it 96-94 for Witherspoon, while Tom Kaczmarek had it 97-94 for Witherspoon and Richard Strange scored it 98-92 for Williams.

For two days, they were the reincarnation of the '93 Phillies. They pitched up a storm. They caught that baseball. They were fun. They were even watchable. Oh, well. So much for that. Last night in Dodger Stadium, the clock struck midnight, and the '93 Phillies turned back into the '96 Phillies - the ultimate Bad Dream Team. And the result was an interminable 8-5 loss to the Dodgers that had to do wonders for Jay Leno's ratings in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The Phillies did make a quasi-run with five anticlimactic runs in the last two innings - after they had fallen behind, 8-0. And centerfielder Wayne Kirby did rob Scott Rolen of a possible three-run homer in the ninth that might have really made things interesting.

Saying that the Phillies' starting pitchers have struggled in the season's second half is like saying comedian Steven Wright has a dry sense of humor. In other words, it would be a major understatement. Phillies starters have won just 16 of 73 second-half starts. Blame it on injuries to Curt Schilling, David West, Bobby Munoz, Tommy Greene, Sid Fernandez and Mike Grace. Blame it on the general ineffectiveness of most of the fill-in starters, along with the demise of Tyler Green.

Umbrellas went up, umbrellas went down. Mike Williams' pitches came in, Mike Williams' pitches went out. And so it went on a dreary, rainy night at Veterans Stadium, where the lowly San Francisco Giants and the lowlier Phillies managed to squeeze in a baseball game before a crowd that dwindled to a few thousand lively diehards in the final inning. Williams was awful last night. Opposing a lineup that had more young faces than a Pearl Jam concert, he allowed four runs, six hits and three walks in just three innings.

For a long time, maybe too long, Mike Williams was the Phillies' go-to guy. When they needed to make room on the roster, they would go to Williams and tell him to go to lovely Moosic, Pa. When some bigger or flashier or more intriguing pitcher would blow up or get hurt or just plain stink, the Phillies would go to Williams again and ask him to fill in. When the Phillies handed Williams the ball, he took the ball. When they handed him disappointment, he took the disappointment.

OK, so it's not the division title, not the wild-card berth, not any reason to pop open the Dom Perignon. But, hey, when you've gone through a club-record 50 players, when you've used 26 pitchers, when you've had a disabled list that is more crowded than your local mall, second place isn't all that bad. The Phillies last night clinched at least a share of second place in the National League East, using Mike Williams' six innings of shutout...

Shaun Russell knows Westampton Tech is a basketball team without a lot of tradition or reputation. "We like flying under the radar," Russell said. "Some teams might not know about us, but we show them we can play ball. " The 6-foot-1 Russell, a junior who lives in Willingboro, has led Westampton Tech to a 7-0 start and the No. 8 spot in The Inquirer Top 10. He is averaging 16.1 points and also is the team's top ball handler and free-throw shooter. "He's a leader for us on and off the court," Westampton Tech coach Mike Williams said.

Mike Williams ran his record to 6-0 and contributed an RBI single as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons downed Tidewater, 5-2, in an International League game yesterday. Williams scattered five hits and struck out seven before leaving after five innings in a game delayed 65 minutes by rain in the third inning. Jay Baller pitched the final two innings for his 12th save. The Red Barons got to Tidewater starter Randy Marshall (6-4) for four runs in the second inning. Joe Millette and Williams had run-scoring singles, and Julio Peguero made it 4-0 with a two-run double.

In a nationally televised contest Sunday night, Chester made an emphatic case for being Southeastern Pennsylvania's top boys' basketball squad. In their first meeting against fellow powerhouse Neumann-Goretti, the Clippers, with their usual defensive ferocity and fastbreak efficiency, cruised to a 58-41 triumph over the frigid-shooting Saints at Neumann University in Aston. The game was televised by ESPN2. "Hopefully, that will give us our just due," said Chester coach Larry Yarbray, whose squad pulled away with a 19-5 burst in the third quarter.

To overcome a 20-point deficit against the 20th-ranked team in South Jersey on Thursday night, Westampton Tech scored one more point in the fourth quarter than it had in the previous three periods. "It was like a barrage," Panthers coach Mike Williams said after his team rallied to claim a 77-70 nonleague boys' basketball victory at Doane Academy. "We put some bombs together. We got some fouls and made some free throws. Things kind of came together. " The Spartans, who are ranked 20th in South Jersey by The Inquirer, led, 58-38, after three quarters, but their center fouled out early in the fourth.

It was a brazen attack that left one dead and five wounded, and police are asking for the public's help to find the gunmen who fired into a crowd outside a Southwest Philadelphia corner store earlier this month. A $20,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest, and the case has been assigned to the Homicide Task Force, police said. "We know people out there know who did this and we need someone to step forward," said Capt. James Clark, commander of the Homicide Unit.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 2 of the 2013 season.   Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals vs. Lions. He's far removed from his days as an elite passer, but Palmer still has enough to get the job done on occasion. He had a solid debut with his new trio of receivers, and he'll give the visiting Lions a much tougher test than Christian Ponder did in the opener. Palmer doesn't have much choice, since his team can't run the ball. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Panthers at Bills.

SOMETIMES, LESS really can be a good thing. Take Villanova's football recruiting class, for instance. The Wildcats usually bring in around 15 players. Not this year. But that's because they've got a whole lot back from a team that went 8-4 and returned to the FCS playoffs after a year's absence. So there simply wasn't too much available roster space. Which made coach Andy Talley's job, well, different. "This is really the first time we've gone through something like this," he said.

CORNELIA DODWELL was always looking for a place where she could show off her formal clothing, her furs, her fashionable dresses. And she found them. "She always had someplace to go," said her granddaughter, Maxine Williams. "She always got to some formal affair. " When Cornelia hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, she always put on her classiest outfits. She didn't need much incentive to display her fashion sense. Cornelia Dodwell, known as "Neal" to family and friends, a longtime janitorial employee of the Philadelphia School District and a loving family matriarch, died Jan. 16. She was 93 and had lived for many years in South Philadelphia.
