It wasn’t a great start to the week for the Phillies or Pirates. The Fightin’s were smacked around by Cincinnati, 12-4, while the Bucs didn’t score against Colorado in a 2-0 defeat.

After scheduled days off, the minor leaguers get back at it today. Harrisburg returns home to play Somerset while Altoona heads to Hartford. State College tonight hosts Mahoning Valley.

And Sixers’ guard Ben Simmons has told the Australian Olympic Committee he will sit out the coming games to work on his skills. Simmons had come under fire for his play during Philly’s second round upset loss in the playoffs.
