It was late October weather, wet and raw, so it seemed appropriate for postseason baseball. There was another aspect to Tuesday's Phillies-Braves game that channeled late October: They were going to get this game in even if the players had to perform in kayaks. If not, the Phillies would have been burdened with three split doubleheaders and 25 games in the final 22 days of the regular season. Anyway, the Phillies showed the few thousand hardy folks who waited out an initial 1-hour, 52-minute delay a good time in a long, soggy, but entertaining game at Citizens Bank Park that extended a couple of minutes past midnight.

A visit to renowned orthopedic surgeon James Andrews confirmed the Phillies' diagnosis of a bone chip and inflammation in Vance Worley's right elbow. The good news is that Andrews immediately ruled out any serious problem with Worley's ulnar collateral ligament. "Immediately after he grabbed my arm, he knew it wasn't Tommy John," said Worley, who visited the specialist in Pensacola, Fla. "Now I just have to go out and get it going. " Worley was not immediately sure of the plan for his return to the field.

When Vance Worley woke up Tuesday at 1:51 p.m. in his South Jersey hotel room that doubles as home during this baseball season, he put his feet on the floor. Almost instantaneously, the room began shaking. There must be some fun stuff going on next door , Worley thought at first. But then the room swayed and the 23-year-old from Sacramento, Calif., knew what was happening - barring some crazy hallucination from sleeping in so late. "That's different," the Phillies righthander said.

The Philadelphia Antiques Show, a regional mainstay for more than a half-century and widely viewed as one of the nation's premier shows of American antiques and decorative arts, has been canceled for 2015, according to show officials. But the 2016 version is on course, they say. "We have already begun planning for 2016," said Richard B. Worley, chair of the show's advisory committee. "Much of the work for 2015 will be very helpful. " In an e-mail sent to antiques vendors early this week, he noted that the volunteer-run show, scheduled for April 11 to 13 at the Convention Center, had "struggled financially in recent years.

The Rev. Win Worley, the 400-pound pastor of Hegewisch Baptist Church, is apologetic. Here he had five out-of-state visitors for the regular Thursday- night exorcism, and hardly any demons showed up. "Quiet night," says Mr. Worley, author of Battling the Host of Hell and five other books. "Sometimes it's wall-to-wall bodies around here. " Sometimes the floor and pews of the church are thick with tortured congregants, writhing and flailing and shrieking as if possessed - which, Mr. Worley points out, they are. "If you come to Hegewisch, you'll hear demons speak out," he says.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - As the sellout crowd at Bright House Field cheered a leadoff home run by Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins on Saturday, Jim Thome went through the task of testing his aging back for the second time this spring in a sparsely attended minor-league game at the Carpenter Complex. Thome, after being too sore from his first appearance Monday to play Thursday and Friday, gave a positive report after his four-inning stint with the Phillies' triple-A team. "After playing, I definitely felt a little bit of soreness the next day," Thome said.

Penn State has a long tradition of excellence in women's field hockey. One of the big reasons is the strong recruiting done in this area. Tami Worley,a former standout player at Marple Newtown High School, has been one of the main cogs in the Lady Lions' attack since her freshman year back in 1985. This past season, Worley's team-high 21 goals led Penn State to a record of 13-4-2 and a spot in the Division I playoffs. In her career, Worley has scored 38 goals in 76 games. "Tami is a real inspirational leader," said assistant coach Sue Sheetz.

NEW YORK - After Vance Worley's first two impressive starts this season as a fill-in for the injured Joe Blanton, it was easy to sense the Phillies fans' growing infatuation with the rookie righthander with the Mohawk and thick-rimmed glasses. In his previous outing, Worley labored against the Reds but averted disaster despite four walks. Afterward, he attributed his problems to not being properly stretched out. Well, the Mets put him on a rack and stretched him until it hurt in the Phillies 9-5 loss at Citi Field Sunday in the wrap up of a three-game series in which the Phillies took the first two. In short, the 23-year-old Worley didn't have it, which is why he almost suffered whiplash watching one line-drive single after another whiz into the outfield.

It was a rare sight. Not long ago, a woman stood at the entrance to the Kimmel Center before a sold-out Philadelphia Orchestra concert, holding a sign: "Need one ticket. " A few weeks earlier, a couple called the box office the day after a performance of The Rite of Spring and made a $10,000 gift. Points of contact like these represent the kind of passion the orchestra must stoke if it is to survive, yet they remain all too infrequent. More than nine months out of bankruptcy, it's still a struggle to get past living hand-to-mouth.

The day the Phillies traded Vance Worley, he was supposed to pick up an engagement ring for his Roxborough girlfriend. He went to Minnesota and languished to a 7.21 ERA. He married that girl in Philadelphia last winter. And after the Twins sold him to Pittsburgh, he resurrected his career. This organization has produced players like Worley before; there will be more after. But Worley held a spot in the greatest Phillies rotation ever, and this is the city where he met his wife. So Wednesday's return, a 6-3 Pirates win aided by Worley's five modest innings, meant something.

PITTSBURGH - While a gaggle of media (more than a dozen) surrounded former Pirates pitcher and current Phillies righthander A.J. Burnett in the visiting dugout at PNC Park, a current Pirate and former Phillies pitcher, who had a longer career in Philly than Burnett had in Pittsburgh, talked to a much smaller group across the diamond. Vance Worley, traded with pitching prospect Trevor May for Ben Revere two Decembers ago, is back in the big leagues. And even though he's been on the Pirates roster for only 20 days, Worley has a poster adorned outside the picturesque, downtown Pittsburgh ballpark.

Former Phillie Vance Worley allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in Minnesota's 11-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in Fort Myers, Fla. Worley's spring ERA rose to 13.50, and he didn't get through the third inning. He is battling for the Twins' final rotation spot.   Niese returns Jonathon Niese was relieved to be back at spring training with the New York Mets after receiving a relatively good medical report. The lefthander had an MRI exam of his pitching elbow in New York on Monday, and the scan revealed he had some inflammation but no damage.

Coatesville's Daquan Worley said he's still "firmly committed" to playing football for Penn State, but added that he is "waiting to see how things transpire" with the school's choice of a replacement for coach Bill O'Brien. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound cornerback, who committed to the Nittany Lions last May, said he "was kind of disappointed" that O'Brien had left to take over the NFL's Houston Texans. "I say that because of the coach he is and the type of guy he is," Worley said. "But he's a hot commodity right now. He has to make the best decision for him and his family.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - When a surgeon mercifully removed the calcified bone spur from Vance Worley's right elbow in September, it was not offered to the pitcher as a parting gift. "They didn't even show it to me," Worley said. "Everybody else I know got to keep theirs. " Worley, standing Wednesday in the bowels of Hammond Stadium, laughed. The bespectacled pitcher is now a Minnesota Twin and perhaps the team's opening day starter. He is engaged, and he popped the question the day he was traded from the Phillies.
