From Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com: "The game featured two strange plays in the fourth inning as Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence both lost fly balls in the twilight. Both balls fell for hits, one a triple. After that inning, Cliff Lee and Victorino exchanged words – 'heated' words, according to Charlie Manuel – in the dugout. Brian Schneider had to step between them. 'That’s good sometimes,' Manuel said. 'There’s nothing wrong with that. No big deal.' Neither Manuel nor Lee would say whether the confrontation stemmed from the balls that had been lost in the outfield. 'It’s going to stay between us,' Lee said. 'I’m not going to talk about it.' Victorino would not talk about it either. 'Just go,' he said brusquely, waving a reporter away from his locker.
The dispute undercut what should have been a clear lede about one of the grittiest wins of the season, one that included a slump-busting, 10th-inning, game-winning homer by Hunter Pence and Victorino, Freddy Galvis and Carlos Ruiz connecting on a game-saving collision at home (pictured from US Presswire). The win put the Phillies back over .500. Read about it here.
