 RISP and suffered a 7–5 loss at Reading on Saturday night…The Phillies scored
 the game-winning runs off losing pitcher RHP Bryce Cox in the eighth inning. 
 LF Chih-Hsien Chiang knocked
 in two runs and tied the game with a solo-homer (first in Double-A) to lead-off
 the eighth…1B Lars Anderson and SS
 Yamaico Navarro each had two hits
 for the Sea Dogs, who have homered five times in two days.

YOUR 2010 PORTLAND SEA DOGS: Eastern League rosters consist of 24 players for

 his first professional start at Binghamton.

TWO DEBUTS IN RELIEF: RHP Eammon
