The Philadelphia Phillies' triple-A affiliate out of Allentown already has an unusual name: the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Now they're going for an unusual marketing tool, at least for a baseball team: Bacon! That's right. The team, whose name is takeoff on a crude iron used in producing steel, has unveiled its 2014 uniforms, and for Saturday home games it's bacon all the way. Bacon on the caps. A wavy bacon underline beneath the moniker 'Pigs across the chest of the jersey.

The snow in Colorado scrapped plans for Pedro Martinez's first postseason start in five years. Game 3 of the Philadelphia-Colorado playoff series was postponed a day because of weather Saturday better suited for cross-country skiing. That prompted a pitching switch by the Phillies, with left-hander J.A. Happ going to the mound Sunday instead of the 37-year-old Martinez. The Rockies are sticking with Jason Hammel. The Phillies holed up in their hotel Saturday with no plans of working out at the ballpark.

The Houston Texans released nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed and put running back Arian Foster on injured reserve Tuesday, the latest blows in a disaster of a season. Reed missed the first two games after hip surgery and was recently relegated to a backup role. On Friday, he expressed his displeasure at not starting. On Sunday, after Houston's seventh straight loss, he publicly criticized the team and said it had been outplayed and outcoached in the team's first full game without Coach Gary Kubiak, who is recovering from a mini-stroke.

While most fans are focused on teams still in the playoff chase, fantasy owners understand the benefit of trolling the rosters of the also-rans. Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at some newer talent currently on display in the MLB's outposts. Scooter Gennett 2B | Milwaukee Amid the Ryan Braun turmoil and disappointing 59-75 record before Saturday, Milwaukee is having a season to forget. But all is not blue with the Brew Crew, as the emergence of Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura could give them a strong middle infield for years to come.

For many young baseball fans, one of the biggest thrills in the world is to bring home an actual ball from a big league game. You should've seen the mass of humanity I had to wriggle out of as a lad just to emerge with a foul ball back at Three Rivers Stadium in the '80s. But I still cherish it to this day. So imagine how nice it must have been for a young Philadelphia Phillies fan to simply have a ball handed to him at Citizens Bank Park last week. No wrestling, no struggle, nothing to endure whatsoever.

PHILADELPHIA  - During their recent 10-game winning streak, the Dodgers turned the page quickly after each victory, refusing to linger on any one victory. So it seemed only fitting that when the streak came to an end Sunday they didn't dwell on that result either. "We don't think about negative stuff. We just keep moving forward," said shortstop Hanley Ramirez, whose two ninth-inning errors allowed the Philadelphia Phillies to escape with a 3-2 victory. "Anything can happen in this game at any time, anywhere.

By holding the Philadelphia Phillies scoreless through eight innings of a 5-0 victory Saturday, the Dodgers' 10th win in a row, the left-hander lowered his career earned-run average to 2.63, the lowest mark by...

On and on they go, and where they stop, nobody … wait, this has to stop? Inevitably, though, not on Saturday night in Philadelphia, not with Clayton Kershaw again looking like baseball's best pitcher.

The Philadelphia Phillies' most successful starting pitcher is likely to spend the postseason in the bullpen. That is a tribute to the depth of a rotation topped by Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee , and certainly no knock on the amazing season turned in by rookie right-hander Vance Worley .

The Philadelphia Phillies hired Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg as their manager on Friday after firing Charlie Manuel. Manuel, 69, had managed the Phillies since 2005, a run that included five consecutive National League East championships and a World Series title in 2008. The only managers who have served their current teams longer than Manuel are Mike Scioscia of the Angels and Ron Gardenhire of the Minnesota Twins, neither of whom is assured of returning next season. Manuel, who also managed the Cleveland Indians from 2000 to 2002, has exactly 1,000 victories as a major league manager.

The Philadelphia Phillies and 26-year-old Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez have reportedly agreed to a six-year contract worth $60 million, according to the Associated Press. The deal will make Gonzalez, who has a fastball that peaks in the upper 90s, the highest-paid international player. Gonzalez pitched for the Cuban national team during the World Cup of Baseball in 2009 and 2011, but defected and had been working out in Tijuana, Mexico, where scouts from teams across the league -- including the Dodgers -- went to observe the right-hander.
