No Honeymoon For Phillies Sandberg


Ryne Sandberg’s position as interim manager for Philadelphia was no joyous celebration following a crushing 4 – 0 defeat to the dominant Dodgers. Limited run support from the Phil’s beleaguered offence which ham strung dismissed leader Charlie Manuel throughout the current season left one wondering what the new man at the top can bring to a high payroll team in a continuing downward spiral. Tonight provided no clues as L.A. starter Matt Greinke ripped through the Phillies line up with 7 1/3 scoreless innings, aided by Hanley Ramirez who homered off Cliff Lee in the fourth.
