BASEBALL: Phillies rally past Reds

PHILADELPHIA — With Roy Halladay lost, the offense trying to get its creaky gears moving at a healthy pace and the bullpen weakened from an already weak state, the Phillies need to show a little vigor, a little fight, if they are going to be a playoff contender come September.

Friday night at Citizens Bank Park, they did that.

After seeing a tenuous lead eradicated by a swing of Joey Votto’s bat in the top of the eighth, the Phillies — fueled by Michael Young’s newfound knack for drawing walks — responded when Dom Brown’s bases-loaded bouncer up the middle of a drawn-in infield scored Young with the go-ahead run as the Phillies recovered for a 5-3 win.
