READING - Grab the stat sheet for the Reading Phillies and take a look at their leading hitter. Michael Spidale has been at or near the top of that list for so long that he is the franchise's all-time leader in hits. After a three-hit game on Friday, his average was .323, which would be his best mark at the Double A level for a season. His success has earned him a spot on the Eastern League All-Star team, but what he really wants - what they all really want - is to climb up the organizational ladder.

With Jerry Holtz on second and Ramon Henderson on first with two out, centerfielder Harvey Brumfield singled to left.

Tuesday was the final day that comments could be posted on news stories at NPR.org. The decision was announced one week prior by ombudsman and public editor Elizabeth Jensen, who quoted NPR's managing editor for digital news, Scott Montgomery: "We've reached the point where we've realized that there are other, better ways to achieve the same kind of community discussion around the issues we raise in our journalism. " Not surprisingly, the decision didn't sit well with many of those who posted 3,375 comments to the announcement.

ON HALLOWEEN, the Reading Phillies, the Double A affiliate of the Phillies' major league franchise, announced they were undergoing a rebranding process. The first phase was announced Sunday and it wasn't a minor change. The Reading Phillies will no longer be called the Reading Phillies. As a part of the team's makeover, the Reading Phillies, also known as the "R-Phils," will unveil a new name, logo and jersey on Nov. 17 at FirstEnergy Stadium. It's a drastic chance for an organization that holds the longest relationship with a major league franchise in baseball.

READING - A stand-up double, a hot-dog-flinging man riding a fake ostrich, T-shirt guns, T-shirt slingshots, men in American-flag body suits sweeping the dirt, two singles, inflatable mascots boogying in front of the home dugout, two girls in fairy costumes cleaning home plate with a cartoonishly large toothbrush, a fan in a sumo suit jumping off a trampoline onto another fan in a sumo suit, pregame fireworks, postgame fireworks. Oh, and a walk-off win. Reading Phillies shortstop Troy Hanzawa drew a two-out walk in the bottom of the ninth inning and later scored the winning run as the Eastern Division beat the Western Division, 5-4, in the Eastern League All-Star Game at FirstEnergy Stadium on Wednesday night.

READING — Aside from showcasing Major League Baseball's stars of tomorrow, the minor leagues are notorious for smaller, homey stadiums and promotional events that range from borderline wacky to clinically insane. As far as these promotions go, Monday's Reading Phillies game was considered by most to be relatively mundane, pushing the game time back about 10 hours. For the 11th consecutive season, the Reading Phillies (who are 5-5 with one postponement in those games) hosted a morning game.

The Phils have ordered a full-size infield tarp, with grommets and handles, made of web-reinforced white polyethylene, 175 feet on each side and big enough to cover a block of rowhouses.

TRENTON - Austin Romine is a talented catcher, a real prospect with a real future in the Yankees' organization, producing steadily at Double A Trenton. Austin Romine had no chance yesterday. He led off the Thunder's seventh inning against Brad Lidge, the Phillies' perfect closer during their 2008 World Series run. Lidge dropped two evil sliders that started just off Romine's hip for strikes two and three. They were, perhaps, the best pitches yet on Lidge's long road toward the Phillies' pitching staff.

TRENTON - Brad Lidge tried to look at the positives in what was a disappointing rehabilitation appearance with the Reading Phillies in Thursday's 9-5 loss to the Trenton Thunder. Entering the game in the seventh inning, Lidge had trouble commanding his slider and fastball and departed after getting just two outs. He threw 28 pitches and allowed two runs, both earned. The righthander surrendered one hit and one walk, hit two batters, and threw three wild pitches. Lidge said his fastball topped out at 89-90 m.p.h., which he said was the best of his five rehab outings.

READING - Matt Rizzotti slugged a home run to deep right field in the 11th inning Monday and the Reading Phillies walked off with a 7-6 victory over Eastern League rival Trenton and a sweep of their four-game series. Phillies closer Brad Lidge pitched a clean sixth inning, striking out two, in a rehab appearance. The righthander threw 13 pitches, nine for strikes.
