The Phillies scored early with a run in the top of the first but that was all the offense the team could muster, as the Fightin’s lost in Los Angeles to the Dodgers, 3-1. The Pirates, meanwhile, lost at home to Washington, 3-2.
The Sixers let a golden opportunity slip away, blowing an 18-point lead in a 103-100 loss to Atlanta in the NBA’s Eastern Conference semifinals. The Hawks and Philly are now tied at two games apiece in a race to four. Game Five is tomorrow night in Philadelphia.
And Juniata Valley’s state semifinal with Halifax was postponed. They’ll try again today with the winner advancing to Thursday’s single-A baseball championship game against Eden Christian.
