Michael Gramlich has played golf with the same three guys at Old York Road Country Club "about 100 times," but had experienced nothing like what happened to his usual foursome during a recent round. Gramlich, 41, a sales executive from Ambler, recorded a double eagle at the 525-yard, par-5 ninth, holing out a 4-wood from about 225 yards. But the rest of the group did something almost as remarkable. "It was just funny," Gramlich said Friday. "And the funniest thing about the hole was that John said he had the hardest par he's ever had to make, getting up and down out of a bunker.

Federal authorities have in their possession a spiral notebook seized from former Pete Rose associate Mike Bertolini that is said to list wagers he placed for Rose on Cincinnati Reds games. Rose has consistently denied that he bet on any baseball games. Sources say the notebook contains lists of bets placed by Bertolini for Rose with a New York bookmaker. "The government has the notebook," said Bertolini's lawyer, Nicholas De Feis. "It's considered evidence at this time, and I'm not going to comment on what's in it. " Baseball officials hope to get custody of the notebook when the government's investigation of the baseball memorabilia industry ends.

Abbas Kiarostami's Where Is the Friend's Home? has the feverish urgency of a child's dream - one of those anxiety-ridden pipsqueak nightmares about forgetting your homework, or showing up in your second-grade classroom without any clothes. Shot in a rural Iranian village - a snaky maze of dirt alleys, white stucco houses and flapping clotheslines - this sweet little film tells the story of an 8-year-old boy's panicky peregrinations, as he attempts to return a schoolmate's mislaid notebook.

A notebook left in a West Philadelphia parking garage where a special-education student was raped Monday led police yesterday to charge a 17-year-old University City High School student in connection with the attack. The suspect, whose name was being withheld by police because of his juvenile status, was arrested late Wednesday night at his West Philadelphia home and charged with rape, indecent assault and related offenses. The victim, also 17, was described as having the intellectual capacity of a fourth grader.

Judging from the sound of pocketbooks clicking open and tissues being passed in the darkened theater the other day, a lot of people started to lose it when James Garner cried. It's not just that his character in The Notebook - the loyal companion of a woman with Alzheimer's - is so decent and true. It's also that Garner, whose laid-back persona has charmed the public since Maverick bowed on TV in 1957, is such a beloved American figure that watching him stuff his knuckles into his mouth to hold back sobs just about breaks your heart.

THE SUSPECT in the Colorado shooting rampage tried unsuccessfully to call his university psychiatrist nine minutes before he opened fire during a "Batman" movie premiere, defense attorneys revealed in court. James Holmes placed the call to an after-hours number at a hospital at the University of Colorado, Anschutz campus, where psychiatrist Lynne Fenton could be reached, defense attorney Tamara Brady said. It wasn't clear why he called Fenton, and she wasn't immediately available to talk with him. Holmes, 24, is accused of opening fire during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," killing 12 people and injuring 58 others.

A toll-free tip line set up for O.J. Simpson's defense was receiving 100 calls a minute, his attorney Robert Shapiro said yesterday. AT&T would not release the number of calls. "This is done totally outside our office. . . . This is totally O.J.'s thing," Shapiro said, adding that a message on the hotline had been changed to delete a referral to Shapiro's office for legal representation. Another Simpson attorney, LeRoy Taft, on Wednesday announced the hotline and a $500,000 reward for information leading to the "real killer or killers" of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.

NEW YORK - The most jarring thing about the Phillies' after-midnight news Tuesday night that saw Chase Utley in the manager's office, standing alongside the assistant general manager and head team athletic trainer, wasn't that the oft-injured, 36-year-old second baseman was being placed on the disabled list with a right-ankle injury. It was that the news appeared to completely blindside manager Ryne Sandberg. About 8 hours earlier, before the game, the manager was asked if he had to have a difficult conversation with Utley, who was hitting under .180 and was out of the lineup for the third time in the last five games.

LESS THAN 48 hours before his scheduled start came up last week, Cole Hamels was scratched. He had a minor hamstring injury, an ailment that was insignificant enough that he was able to throw his normal, in-between starts bullpen session without issue on Sunday, two days after that scheduled start. But Hamels had some fun with his teammates during the period of uncertainty, clearing out his locker. Perhaps they'd think he was traded, Hamels thought, trying a prank to lighten the mood on a team in the middle of a weeklong losing streak.

Just a few weeks ago, when we were still waking up to chilly June mornings, the neighbor across my back wall put up another radio antenna. That makes three, and I took this development as the squirrel might greet the news that a crop of peanuts had just been planted for his express consumption and pleasure. It would be only a couple of weeks until my neighbor - we'll call him Fritz - would be sitting out nights under his patio umbrella, releasing distant radio signals into the warm air. This scanning across the crackle and static for strands of music and indistinct languages is an instant atmospheric change, as though Fritz turns our house over to a previous era. Summer in the city comes with its own vocabulary of sounds - not the driving buzz of suburban lawns being mowed, but stray rap escaping from passing cars.

NEW YORK - Cesar Hernandez started at second base last night for the fifth time in the last eight games. Chase Utley, who was out of the lineup in two of the previous three games, was also penciled into manager Ryne Sandberg's batting order. But eventually Sandberg won't have the luxury of the designated hitter to balance playing the younger, developing infielder (Hernandez, a career .294 hitter in the minor leagues) while also not benching the franchise icon (Utley, the unofficial leader of the 2007-11 era)

All of Pete Rose's impressive entries in baseball's record books - the National League hits mark he set as a Phillie, the major-league standard that came during his second stint with the Reds - may ultimately mean nothing now that the contents of another record book have been made public. ESPN's Outside the Lines reported Monday that a ledger confiscated in 1989 during the raid on a Rose associate's Ohio home confirmed that baseball's all-time hits leader had done what he had long denied - bet on Cincinnati Reds games while he was still playing for them.

WHEN CATCHER Cameron Rupp asked Adam Morgan if he was nervous before taking the mound yesterday at Citizens Bank Park, the first time as a major leaguer, Morgan said "not yet. " Making his MLB debut, on Father's Day, in front of his dad, Wiley, and other family members, did the nerves ever arrive? "Honestly, not really," Morgan said. "It was more anxious and excited to see how my stuff played. Asking these guys some first-time advice about their debuts, and they're like, 'Don't look up.' Rupp did a good job just telling me, 'Just me and you playing catch.' That's what I did. I didn't look up and played a game of baseball.

PITTSBURGH - This was Cole Hamels as good as we've ever seen him. As good as he was in the playoffs in Cincinnati, as good as he was in the stifling heat in St. Louis. For seven scoreless innings yesterday he handcuffed the Pirates, striking out 12 - his seventh career start of 12 or more - while allowing just four hits and one walk. A.J. Burnett did not have the same level of stuff, but the Phillies were just as futile against him. By the end of the ninth inning, they had managed just five hits and a walk while forcing the veteran righthander to throw just 101 pitches.

JEFF FRANCOEUR has been with seven teams in a decade-long career that began in Atlanta. After the way his last couple of stops ended, he wasn't sure where or maybe even when the next chance would surface. The Phils signed him to a minor league contract last November. In his last 24 games, he's batting .356 (21-for-59) with 16 RBI, including the two that turned into the game winners yesterday. "I'm just trying to work my butt off and enjoy each and every moment," he said. "I think with what I've been through, you just take it day by day. Sometimes, you never know.

There's a distinctly self-congratulatory air around the Kimmel Center these days. Anne Ewers, its upbeat leader, recently gave a "president's address" in the Perelman Theater, floating statistics on attendance, finances, and building use like a pharmaceutical CEO showing stockholders the direction of dividends - up, up, up. Indeed, positive results of the Kimmel's business plan can be measured now that it has been in effect for several years....

THE NUMBERS may have looked similar, but to Chad Billingsley, yesterday's 7-4 loss to the Mets felt like progress. Five days earlier, the 30-year-old righthander made his first start in nearly 2 calendar years, a layoff necessitated by a pair of elbow surgeries that ended his career with the Dodgers. In his first game back, he allowed six runs (five earned) in five innings against the Braves, including home runs by Freddie Freeman and Kelly Johnson. Yesterday, the big blast came from Curtis Granderson, who crushed a fastball off a billboard between the first and second seating decks in right-centerfield for a two-run home run that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning.
