SARASOTA, FLA. -- The Orioles roughed up right-hander A.J. Burnett - one of the team's top offseason free-agent targets - for six runs on seven hits over three innings on their way to a 15-4 Grapefruit League win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Ryan Flaherty blasted a two-run homer to straight-away center field in the second inning off Burnett and Nick Markakis was 4-for-4 with two doubles and a triple. Four other Orioles starters had multiple hits, including Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy, who drove in two runs each.

World Series, Game 6: Phillies@Yankees 7:30 p.m. [chs. 45, 5] Chase Utley, left, is the first player to have two multi-homer games in a single World Series since Willie Aikens in 1980. Ryan Howard is the first to strike out 12 times since Willie Wilson the same year. And this is the first time two Royals have been mentioned in conjunction with the World Series in decades.

Phillies will fight back Dan Connolly Baltimore Sun I know there are plenty of reasons to jump off the Phillies' bandwagon. Shortstop Jimmy Rollins, relievers Ryan Madson and Brad Lidge and starter Roy Oswalt all may sign elsewhere, and Ryan Howard will miss a chunk of next season. And, of course, the Phillies have lost in the postseason for three consecutive years since winning it all in 2008. I don't care. There are three reasons the Phillies, who had the best record in baseball, should still be the favorite for 2012: Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels.

World champion Philadelphia is still leading the National League East, but the team has to be looking forward to the end of interleague play. The Phillies are 3-6 against the AL East, winning their first series at new Yankee Stadium, but losing five of six at home this week to the Red Sox and Blue Jays. The Phillies are coming off a sweep by the Jays, who outscored them 23-11. Philadelphia (36-28) is a dismal 13-19 at Citizens Bank Park. And the news gets worse for the Phillies.

Up Albert Pujols, first baseman, Cardinals -- He probably could be in this section every week, but Pujols definitely earned it in St. Louis' three-game series against the Reds, going 6-for-12 with four homers, six runs scored and seven RBIs. Jim Thome, designated hitter, White Sox -- Last year, the veteran slugger hit seven home runs in 193 at-bats. This year, he matched that total in 38 at-bats. Oscar Villarreal, reliever, Braves -- Bet you didn't have this guy penciled in to be leading the league in wins after two weeks.

CINCINNATI — When the end finally came — fittingly on a Cole Hamels strikeout — there were no wild celebrations on the field. No hugs, no dogpiles, just a few handshakes and high-fives. The Phillies, after all, have been here before. So after pushing aside the Reds 2-0 on Sunday to finish off a clinical three-game sweep of the National League Division Series, most everyone in a Philadelphia uniform was thinking about the road ahead and not the one they had just traveled.

The wind was blowing in at Bright House Field on Wednesday afternoon, which made it a little easier for a couple of the Orioles' young starters to match up against the big-swinging Philadelphia Phillies. Chris Tillman and Zach Britton both struggled with their emotions in their 2011 exhibition debuts, but they still held things together in the early innings and the Orioles held off a late Phillies rally to remain undefeated with a 6-5 victory. "I was a little jumpy ... too excited," Tillman said.

ADVERTORIAL CONTENT   With all the negativity about today’s real estate market, people can easily forget the huge positive about current market conditions:  For first-time homebuyers, this is one of the best moments in American history – ever – to finally break free from renting and start building equity in a home that they own. Mortgage interest rates are still phenomenally low, and with today’s prices, many new-construction homes...

Beltran, not McCutchen? Juan C. Rodriguez Sun Sentinel Among the biggest head-scratchers is how Mets right fielder Carlos Beltran made his sixth All-Star team at the expense of Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen making his first. Beltran is having a nice rebound season, batting .281-12-55 with a .863 on-base plus slugging percentage. McCutchen (.294-12-46) has been better, logging a .890 OPS in addition to 15 steals, 12 more than Beltran. No doubt NL manager Bruce Bochy can count on a professional at-bat from the switch-hitting Beltran late in the game.

Phillies third base coach Juan Samuel didn't get to finish the 2010 season as interim Orioles manager, and negotiations to return him to the O's coaching staff broke down over the winter, but he had nothing but good things to say about the organization Wednesday morning at Bright House Field. "I thought I was heading back [to Baltimore], but it didn't happen to work out," he said. "We couldn't get on the same page. " Still, Samuel said that he was very happy — and grateful to Andy MacPhail — for the opportunity to get some managerial experience, and he bears no ill will torward the O's. He is one of two former Orioles managers on the Phillies coaching staff, along with Sam Perlozzo . Samuel was replaced by Buck Showalter after managing the Orioles to a 17-34 record as the interim replacement for Dave Trembley , but he said he wasn't surprised that the club turned a corner during the final two months of the season.

Money the clear choice Steve Gould Baltimore Sun Of course Jayson Werth should have taken the Nationals' money. First, he's 31 years old. He knew going in that whatever contract he signed — even if it weren't for the seven years they gave him — could be the last of his career. Even if he had signed for four years, there's no telling what would be out there when he's 35 and his production has, in all likelihood, slipped. Also, it's not as if we're talking about some hard-luck loser who has never sniffed the postseason.

St. Louis -- The cold drizzle that washed out Game 4 of the World Series last night left me pondering the sports paradox of the ages. Why does baseball, the only major warm-weather team sport, allow its championship games to be played in terrible weather, when football, the only major all-weather sport, insists on perfect conditions for the Super Bowl? As the nuns used to say when I asked one of those unanswerable questions in Catholic grammar school, it's just one of the mysteries. The conditions last night were so abysmal that there would have been little question about the way to handle this situation during the regular season.

Though there are still a few playoff spots to be decided, the most intriguing story line in the remaining days of baseball's regular season revolves around Ryan Howard and his long-shot run at one of the most hallowed records in sports. In a game that loves its past, we're forced to skip over an entire chapter in the history books, the one titled "Too Good to Be True." Despite whatever whispers you might be hearing or whatever nagging doubts you might be having, all indications suggest that Howard is helping to write the next chapter, the one about a clean athlete giving honest pursuit to the single-season home run record.

PHILADELPHIA — Jimmy Rollins was in a rut. Calf and hamstring problems limited the former National League Most Valuable Player to 88 games in the regular season. He was 1-for-15 in the postseason. But the Giants got him started. Jonathan Sanchez helped him drive in his first run of the postseason by walking him with the bases loaded. Third baseman Mike Fontenot gifted him a hit by letting a popup plop onto in the infield. Then Rollins drove a down-the-middle fastball by Santiago Casilla to the top of the wall in right-center for a bases-clearing double that blew open the game and sent the Phillies on their way to a 6-1 victory on Sunday night in Game 2 of the NLCS.
