The Next Three
ALL GAMES ON WWWT (107.7 FM, 1500 AM)
Since closer Chad Cordero headed to the disabled list, retroactive to April 30, Jon Rauch has pitched 10 1/3 innings in 10 games. Only last night did he finally allow a run. "He's been great," Manager Manny Acta said of Rauch, who already has a career-high 10 saves. "He's a guy, we feel comfortable with this guy. He can do it all."BY THE NUMBERS
The Phillies' ranking, in the major leagues, in home runs
"We had a talk in Baltimore. I told him about [Alfonso] Soriano, how in a week Soriano went from struggling a little bit to having 10 home runs. And [Pe¿a] is the type of guy -- he can have a couple good games and he'll have the power numbers there."
