LOS ANGELES -- Delmon Young had a career-high six RBIs, helping John Lannan breeze to his first victory with Philadelphia, and the Phillies got homers from Michael Young and John Mayberry in a 16-1 rout of the Dodgers on Friday night, snapping Los Angeles season-best, six-game winning streak. Cris Carter Youth Jersey . Phillies All-Star first baseman Ryan Howard, batting .268 overall and .173 against left-handers, was given the day off by manager Charlie Manuel with lefty Chris Capuano starting for the Dodgers. And with lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu scheduled to pitch for the Dodgers on Saturday, Manuel said he would give the 2006 NL MVP another day off before putting him back in the lineup for Sundays series finale. Despite Howards absence from the lineup, the Phillies ended up with a season-high 21 hits, including four by Michael Young. Delmon Young had an RBI single in the first inning, a two-run double in the second, a run-scoring fielders choice grounder in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh. The Phillies, who hadnt had more than nine runs and 16 hits in a game all season, also got a pair of run-scoring singles from Jimmy Rollins -- matching his RBI total for his previous 10 games combined. Michael Youngs leadoff homer in the fourth gave Philadelphia a 7-0 lead. Lannan made it 8-0 with his RBI single in the fifth, and the Phillies extended the margin to 12-0 with a four-run sixth highlighted by Mayberrys two-run homer off Peter Moylan. They added three more in the seventh. The 15-run losing margin was the largest for the Dodgers since they moved to Los Angeles after the 1957 season. Things got so ugly for the Dodgers, utilityman Skip Schumaker was summoned by manager Don Mattingly to pitch the ninth inning. He struck out pinch-hitter Humberto Quintero with the bases loaded on his 24th pitch after retiring his first two batters. Schumaker also threw a scoreless inning of relief on April 29 against Colorado in the Dodgers 12-2 loss at Chavez Ravine. Lannan (1-2) gave up five hits over seven innings in his sixth start with the Phillies and third since coming off the disabled list. The left-hander, who spent his six previous big league seasons with Washington, has won his last five decisions against the Dodgers. Lannen also was 3 for 4 at the plate. Two seasons ago, he hit his first major league home run at Dodger Stadium in a 7-2 win for the Nationals. The Dodgers run came on a sixth-inning double by pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke, who was reinstated from the disabled list after missing 15 games because of bursitis in his left shoulder. Capuano (2-5) surrendered seven runs and 10 hits over 3 2-3 innings in his third start off the DL, after throwing a combined 11 scoreless innings against the Yankees and Padres during the last road trip. He has a 9.00 ERA in five starts at Dodger Stadium this season, compared to a 1.35 figure on the road. Two of the runs off Capuano were unearned, the result of a fielding error by three-time Gold Glove first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on a two-out grounder by Domonic Brown in the second. NOTES: Howard, in the second season of a five-year, $125 million contract, is batting .268 overall with 10 homers and 41 RBIs -- including a current 0 for 16 drought that includes eight strikeouts. In Thursday nights series-opening 6-4 loss, he grounded into an inning-ending double play on a 3-0 pitch. "Right now hes uncomfortable and hes not seeing (lefties) good," said Manuel, who met privately with Howard and hitting coaches Wally Joyner and Steve Henderson. "Its just a matter of him getting his swing back and getting in a good groove. So were going to do some drills with him, do some work with his hitting and also give him some time -- let him sit down and kind of clear his head and well where he goes. And hes fine with it." ... Delmon Young had as many as five RBIs in a game on two previous occasions, most recently on Oct. 2, 2009, against Kansas City while playing for Minnesota. ... The Phillies optioned INF Freddy Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to clear a roster spot for INF John McDonald, who was acquired in a trade with Cleveland on Thursday. ... INF Luis Cruz, who is out of minor league options, was designated for assignment. Dalvin Cook Jersey . The four-time Grand Slam champion has beaten Hantuchova nine straight times, with the Slovaks only win coming when they first played 10 years ago. "I had a tough first opponent who can play extremely good tennis," Sharapova said. Dru Samia Vikings Jersey . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. http://www.authenticvikingspro.com/John-...gs-jersey/ . Long snapper Patrick Mannelly announced Friday that he is retiring after a 16-year-career with the Bears, a span in which he played in a team record 245 games and snapped the ball 2,282 times.6) Im not sure how good it makes them, but after the Chicago White Sox answered their four biggest needs by signing closer David Robertson, designated-hitter Adam LaRoche and left fielder Melky Cabrera, and by trading for starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija, has any major league baseball team done better in rebuilding for 2015?7) Wasnt it good of Aaron Rodgers to take the blame for the Green Bay Packers loss in Buffalo? I thought he might complain about the weather--too warm.8) Heres a storyline to follow, and a juicy question if it comes to this--if the Buffalo Bills are alive with a playoff chance when they close the regular season at New England, and if the Patriots have clinched home-field advantage in the AFC, is it likely or unlikely that Bill Belichick would give Tom Brady the day off?9) Do you wish to delve deeper into the formula for a playoff appearance by the Bills? Heres their road map to the AFCs second wild-card spot--Buffalo closes with wins at Houston and Brady-less New England to finish at 10-6, Pittsburgh and Baltimore claim two of three remaining playoff berths and the Bills, at 10-6, wind up ahead of Cincinnati, Kansas City and San Diego. The Bengals are in tough against Denver and the Steelers, and since the Chiefs and Chargers play each other, just one of them can get to 10 wins. If neither does, and the Bills do, Buffalo is in.10) With the Toronto Maple Leafs now contending for the lead in the NHL East, this question comes to mind: How long has it been since the Leafs opened a playoff series at home? It is more than a bit interesting to note that it has been long enough to see five of the Toronto players in that April 8, 2004 playoff opener against Ottawa gain induction to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Those five are Mats Sundin, Ed Belfour, Joe Nieuwendyk, Ron Francis and Brian Leetch.11) Can you tell me how Mike Santorelli can play so well for the Leafs and be tied for 2nd in NHL plus-minus ratings after being traded for a fourth-round draft pick by Nashville, waived by Florida and left unsigned by Winnipeg and Vancouver?12) When the NFL season began with a crackdown on illegal contact by defensive backs, did you think they would adjust and learn to avoid penalties? You were wrong.13) Are you loyal to your pre-season picks, or do you change your mind according to the latest evidence? Last season, I picked Seattle to win the Super Bowl and never saw a reason to change. Adrian Peterson Jersey. This season, I picked Denver and, while Im tempted to change, I will remain loyal, however stubborn that makes me. (I am, or was tempted to switch back to Seattle.)14) I guess you cant think like this when youre an NHL executive, but what must those in charge of the Columbus Blue Jackets say to themselves when they see Jakub Voracek and Rick Nash sitting 3rd and 9th respectively in NHL scoring?15) Do you want proof that times do change? In the NBA, during a 32-year period from 1959 to 1990, 27 NBA titles were won by the Boston Celtics (15), Los Angeles Lakers (6), Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons (2 each). In the current NBA standings, none of those teams holds a playoff spot.16) It still boggles the mind that Wayne Gretzky scored almost 1,000 more points than any other NHL player, but isnt it just as amazing that, after moving past Michael Jordan into third place on the NBAs all-time scoring list, Kobe Bryant was still more than 6,000 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?17) Did the San Francisco 49ers play in three straight NFC championship games because of coach Jim Harbaugh, or did they fail to win a Super Bowl because of coach Jim Harbaugh?18) I suppose I could have been making a mistake, but I didnt watch a minute of Johnny Manziels first NFL start. Did you? Because that would have been a mistake.19) Can you win in the NHL without a good power play? Well, for the first 18 games of this season, you could easily explain the futility of the Buffalo Sabres by pointing to the worst power play in the league. It produced only three goals. The Sabres, suddenly and inexplicably, have caught fire by winning 10 of their last 13 games. During that time, they have scored four power play goals. So thats not it.20) And finally, Sunday night was a good night to be Dallas, with the lone exception having something to do with a sport other than football and a team other than the Cowboys. Are you old enough to take this a step further, with still another "Dallas" reference? J.R. didnt last forever, either.
