Second in an occasional series on the 100th anniversary of the Phillies' first pennant. The late-inning drama that produced the Yankees' 3-2 win in Game 3 of their 1950 World Series matchup with the Phillies was enough to occupy the sportswriters in Yankee Stadium's press box. The strange visitor seated in a back-row corner hardly crossed their radar. Some of those who noticed the old man were spooked. His right ear was missing. His face was an angry red, his scowl embedded. A thick shock of white hair was as disheveled as the clothes he wore.

The unconscious biases of police can damage community relations, sensitivity trainers told a roomful of Philadelphia officers and their supervisors Wednesday. "We get our legitimacy from the community we serve," said trainer Sandra A. Brown, a former police lieutenant from Palo Alto, Calif. Brown told the 25 Philadelphia officers and supervisors that the session, dubbed "Fair and Impartial Policing," would involve a "tough conversation" about race. But she said biases affect issues beyond race as well.

JemCon, a convention celebrating the 1980s cartoon Jem , hits the Philadelphia area this weekend. If the Jem theme song has anything to do with it, the convention is sure to be truly, truly, truly outrageous. The cartoon, created by Christy Marx, ran from 1985 to 1988 and has a small but dedicated fan base that worships at the altar of Jerrica Benton - owner of Starlight Music by day and rock star Jem by night. Marx will be attendance at the 11th annual convention, which takes place at the Holiday Inn Lansdale, meeting and greeting fans and discussing the show during the convention's various panels.

The game included no quick pitches or ejections and featured merely one home run, but the Phillies on Wednesday night still couldn't find a way to beat their division rivals. The bats struggled early and the bullpen struggled late in the Phillies' 9-4 loss, their eighth consecutive defeat to the first-place New York Mets. The Mets have claimed 11 of the first 12 games in the season series, and in this week's three meetings at Citizens Bank Park they have outscored the home team, 31-16.

THE SORDID tale of three corpses found stuffed inside a North Philly garage is only getting more twisted. Police pulled the three bodies from the garage, on Hagert Street near 27th, just before 11 a.m. Tuesday, after a neighbor stumbled upon them while investigating the stench of rotting flesh emanating from the property. State records show that Powell Mortuary Services, the nearby funeral home that the bodies were entrusted to, was cited in May for operating without a license.

PHILADELPHIA is now part of the Josh Duggar sex scandal story. As if it could get any better. In Touch magazine reports that stripper and porn star Danica Dillon had sex with Josh on two separate occasions while his wife, Anna , was pregnant with their fourth child. So says Danica - who passed an In Touch polygraph test. The first time was right here in the City of Duggarly Love, in mid-March, after Josh approached Danica following her performance at the Gold Club, in Philadelphia.

THE PLAYERS had retreated to their respective benches. Calm had been restored, the Phillies retired in order to end the seventh inning. Hanging over the dugout rail, Jeff Francoeur had already washed away an unfamiliar angry face with his more familiar happy face when Cameron Rupp returned from warming up the pitcher with one final message from harassed plate umpire Dan Bellino. "He said, 'Tell Frenchy we all love him,' " Francoeur was saying at his locker before last night's game.

WHEN THE first run in eight innings crossed the plate, the remnants of the announced crowd of 22,526 at Citizens Bank Park late Thursday night erupted. A two-run double to end the extra-inning run drought was followed by another run by way of two errors by the pitcher. More rowdy applause. Yes, it would be impossible in a tie game for the Phillies to score on consecutive at-bats at their own ballpark in extra innings. Yes, it is entirely possible for a National League East rival to travel south down I-95, bring a few thousand fans, and take over your ballpark.

AFTER TAKING a called strike, Freddy Galvis got fooled by a changeup from Mets lefthander Jon Niese and barely got his bat around in time. The second-inning line drive left Galvis' bat and headed just to the left of the Phillies dugout. The crowd gasped. Galvis immediately put his hands over his helmet and turned away. He didn't step back in the batter's box for 20 seconds or so. Commissioner Rob Manfred, at last night's game at Citizens Bank Park, wasn't concerned about pace of play at the moment.

POPE FRANCIS' visit next month will put Philadelphia in the world spotlight. That's always Good News/Bad News. When Philly gets ready for its close-up, there's often egg on our face and spinach between our teeth. (Happily, it will be too warm for anyone to chuck a snowball at His Holiness.) The carping started with Martial Law Lite, locking down a vast swath of the city. What seems like media negativity flows from asking questions - of the city, the World Meeting of Families, the Secret Service, SEPTA - that were not answered, or were answered and then reversed.
