LEGION BASEBALL- The Sheridan Troopers advanced to play at least one more game at their regional tournament with a dominating performance Friday against Jackson, where the Troopers won 19-2. If the Troopers can beat Cody this afternoon at 1 pm, they will advance to the State Tournament next week at Thorne-Rider Stadium in Sheridan. The Sheridan Jets stayed alive Friday despite losing a close game to Cheyenne 9-6 at the State Tournament. The Jets will play a loser out game against Cody this morning at 10 am. If the Jets win, they will play again this afternoon at 4 o'clock.
ROCKIES- Roy Halladay cruised through eight innings, Raul Ibanez drove in three runs with three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 on Friday night. Halladay allowed five hits and a walk while striking out nine on a 92-degree evening at Citizens Bank Park. The right-hander threw 116 pitches in his first win since July 5 against Atlanta.
One day after the Phillies fired hitting coach Milt Thompson and replaced him with Greg Gross, manager Charlie Manuel tinkered with his struggling offense against Rockies starter Aaron Cook . Manuel benched Shane Victorino, moved Jayson Werth to center field and inserted Ross Gload in right.
