Wes Covington, a powerful outfielder on the ill-fated 1964 Phillies team whose unorthodox batting stance was mimicked by a generation of young Philadelphians, died July 4 in Edmonton, Alberta, where he had made his home for decades. Mr. Covington, 79, who hit 131 home runs in 11 big-league seasons, succumbed to cancer, according to family members. A North Carolina native who was signed by the Boston Braves in 1952, Mr. Covington, at his first minor-league stop in Eau Claire, Wis., initially overshadowed his teammate, future Hall of Famer Hank Aaron.

Mark Twain seemed to anticipate 2016 when he remarked that "a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still getting its shoes on. " In the intervening century-plus, that travel time has been greatly reduced. Today, thanks to social media, a lie can orbit the earth before truth's alarm clock even buzzes. We got another reminder of that last week when hackers broke into the NFL's Twitter account and mischievously transmitted the following faux news: "We regret to inform our fans that our commissioner, Roger Goodell, has passed away.

The start times for the remainder of the first round were announced tonight and the Phillies and Cardinals will play at 5:07 p.m. on Tuesday in Game 3 and 6:07 p.m. on Wednesday in Game 4, if necessary.

If Game 5 is needed, the Phillies would host an 8:37 start on Friday, if both NLDS go the distance.

When Joe Blanton takes the mound for the first time in Angel Stadium with his new team, fans who have been oblivious to his career since he left the Phils may be a little surprised. Blanton, who signed with the Halos as a free agent in December, is about 30 pounds lighter than his normal 260. "I never looked at it like I needed to lose weight," Blanton said. "It just kind of happened. " Chipper Jones putting on pinstripes? The banged-up New York Yankees would love to have him. General manager Brian Cashman even said so Monday, expressing interest in the retired Atlanta Braves star.

Matty Alou, once part of an all-Alou outfield for the San Francisco Giants with brothers Felipe and Jesus, died Thursday in his native Dominican Republic. He was 72. He died of diabetes complications, according to his former Dominican team, Leones del Escogido. The Giants also confirmed his death and said Mr. Alou had been sick for several years with a variety of health issues. Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda said he knew his "great friend" had been ailing. "We roomed together a few times with the Giants," Cepeda said by phone.

Philadelphia barely saw Alex Rodriguez during a 22-year career that he tearfully announced Sunday will come to an official close Friday night at Yankee Stadium. We did, however, see him enough to loathe him in much the same way they do in Boston, Baltimore and all of the New York Yankees' rival cities. In fact, Phillies fans have more reason to dislike him than all the other cities combined. Brian Cashman reminded us why Sunday. When asked about the man the Yankees will pay $20 million not to play next season, the team's general manager removed his 2009 World Series ring to make a point.

THERE IS little doubt that if ownership wanted to, the Phillies could buy their way out of the current rebuilding mode and field a team that could compete for the World Series as quickly as the 2018 season. This season, the Phillies began the new local television contract they signed with NBC Universal and Comcast SportsNet in 2014. And while the exact figures of the deal will likely forever be clouded, the Phillies earning more than $2 billion over the next two decades is a safe guestimate.

NEW YORK - It was easy to forget, while watching them outplay the New York Yankees on Tuesday, that the Houston Astros are still only two seasons removed from losing 111 games. The past was a distant memory in the visitors clubhouse at Yankee Stadium on this night. Come Thursday, the ahead-of-schedule Astros will open play in the American League division series against the defending AL-champion Kansas City Royals. Baseball's surprise team advanced from the one-and-done AL wild-card game behind another dominant outing from ace Dallas Keuchel and a few timely hits.

NEW YORK - It really had all the makings of the perfect showcase start for Cole Hamels and, instead, it spiraled into one of the many games that actually left the lefthander with his arms raised in the air in disbelief. After three games when everything broke right for the Phillies, Hamels took the mound and the worst team in baseball reared its ugly head behind him. It culminated in a routine ground ball to second base that began the fifth inning. Second baseman Cesar Hernandez was positioned far closer to second base than Hamels would have liked, and it resulted in a single.

Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz says he "never knowingly took any steroids" and he's definitely a Hall of Famer. The remarks by the 39-year-old designated hitter came in a column Thursday for the Players' Tribune, a website founded by former Yankees star Derek Jeter that gives professional athletes a platform. Ortiz also voiced his displeasure that he will "always be considered a cheater" to his detractors. Ortiz contends nobody in baseball has been tested more for performance-enhancing drugs than he has - more than 80 times since 2004.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Cameron Rupp pulled a chair over to Aaron Nola's locker two hours before Nola, the Phillies' top pitching prospect, made his debut against major-league hitters. Rupp, the starting catcher for Friday's rain-shortened 10-0 loss to the New York Yankees, asked Nola which pitches he threw. He told Nola to be himself. Go for the throat, the catcher said. Rupp said he did not tell the pitcher that Friday's Yankees lineup was not a spring-training special. The starting nine included most of the team's opening-day regulars.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - With Cliff Lee out for the foreseeable future after being placed on the 60-day disabled list yesterday afternoon, 3 weeks before Opening Day, the Phillies were in need of some good news on the starting rotation front. They got some earlier in the day. Aaron Harang threw a bullpen session yesterday morning and gave himself the green light to jump back into the spring starting rotation Thursday night in Tampa against the New York Yankees (7:05, ESPN). The righthander has already had two of his spring starts scratched with back issues.

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Trade speculation surrounding Cole Hamels will persist until the Phillies pull the trigger on a deal. That may not come until closer to baseball's July 31 trade deadline. But according to Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. on Sunday, one club has in the last couple of days "stepped up and has shown more particular interest" in the prized lefthander. Such a vague comment could be taken a multitude of ways but is certainly notable on a weekend when one potential Hamels suitor lost its ace and a published report pegged the New York Yankees as another.

TAMPA, Fla. - Six years ago they were World Series headliners and at the peak of their popularity in their respective cities. Ryan Howard had just hit .333 with two home runs and eight RBIs, winning the NLCS MVP in the Phillies' five-game series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He had carried his team back to a second straight World Series for the first time in franchise history. Alex Rodriguez had batted .438 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in nine playoff games to help the New York Yankees get back to the World Series for the first time since 2003.
