The Philadelphia Phillies have declined the 2012 options on the contracts of closer Brad Lidge and number-4 starter Roy Oswalt.

The Philadelphia Phillies showed Thursday night why they’re the top team in the National League.

Staving off elimination, the Phillies scored three runs in the third inning off Giants ace pitcher Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay, not pitching at his best but good enough to escape a couple of jams to stay in the game six innings despite a slight groin pull.

The Phillies beat San Francisco 4-2 at AT&T Park in Game 5 of the National League championship series.

The Giants blew a golden chance to close out the series at home, but now has to try and wrap it in always-tough Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Halladay allowed six his in six innings, two earned runs, two walks and 5 strikeouts.

Brad Lidge closed out the game in the ninth for the save.

Phillies sweep Reds 1-0 as first half officially ends

compiled from staff and wire reports

To most fans, getting swept in a series before the All-Star break might look bad. But as far as the Cincinnati Reds are concerned, they feel fortunate because they had an unbelievable first half that no one, not even themselves saw coming out of spring training. 49 wins and a 1 game lead in the NL Central Division.

The fact that they have played better the St. Louis Cardinals is a testament to a well-balanced team that will probably have Edinson Volquez, Aroldis Chapman and Gary Matthews, Jr. added to the roster when the second half begins against Colorado.

Phillies shortstop Jimmie Rollins knocked in the games only run in the third inning as Philadelphia won, 1-0.

The Reds couldn’t score off Cole Hamels, who worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fourth and was never in serious trouble after that.

Erratic closer Brad Lidge recorded the final two outs for his sixth save.
