Phillies acquire Rosario from Toronto
April 5th, 2007

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies acquired right- handed pitcher Francisco Rosario from the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday, in exchange for cash considerations.

The 26-year-old Rosario went 1-2 with a 6.65 ERA in 17 games (one start) for Toronto last season, his first in the majors. He holds a 20-26 mark over parts of eight minor league seasons, with a 3.38 ERA in 148 games (84 starts).

Rosario went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in eight games during spring training last month. He recorded nine strikeouts in nine innings.

A move will be made to fit Rosario on Philadelphia's 25-man roster when he joins the team in Miami tomorrow. The Phillies, who entered the season with high expectations, have dropped their first three games of the 2007 campaign.

By Associated Press


Friday, April 6

N.Y. Mets at Atlanta (7:35 p.m. EDT).

The NL East rivals have each won three straight.



- Mike Piazza, Athletics, hit a homer with two outs in the ninth inning to lift Oakland to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

- Daisuke Matsuzaka, Red Sox, struck out 10 and allowed one run and six hits in seven innings in his major league debut, a 4-1 victory over Kansas City.

- Scott Hatteberg, Reds, hit a two-run homer in Cincinnati's 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs.


Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out 10 in seven innings in his major league debut Thursday, leading Boston over Kansas City 4-1. Matsuzaka allowed six hits, including a sixth-inning homer by David DeJesus, and walked one. His fastball clocked at 95 mph and he retired 10 batters in a row during one stretch starting with the final out of the first inning.


Mike Piazza hit his first home run as a full-time designated hitter, connecting against Francisco Rodriguez with two outs in the ninth inning to lift the Oakland Athletics over the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Thursday night.


A.J. Pierzynski was hit by a pitch from Roberto Hernandez with the bases loaded in the ninth inning Thursday, sending the Chicago White Sox to a 4-3 victory over Cleveland. ... Two walks, a wild pitch and a passed ball allowed Cincinnati to make a comeback and beat the Chicago Cubs 5-2. Bob Howry gave up Jeff Conine's pinch-single that tied the game with two outs in the seventh, then walked Ryan Freel to put the go-ahead run in scoring position. Will Ohman followed with a wild pitch, a walk to Adam Dunn and a full-count slider that deflected off the end of catcher Michael Barrett's mitt, allowing Conine to score from third.


Elijah Dukes hit his second homer in two major league games and Tampa Bay took advantage of some sloppy defense by the Yankees in a 7-6 win on Thursday night. Dukes also homered in his first big league at-bat on Monday.


''Against the Giants, you're always thinking about Barry. You have to continue to see how he's swinging, how he looks. He's always there lurking.'' - Padres manager Bud Black on Barry Bonds. Bonds had an RBI double and scored a run in the Giants' 5-3 victory over the Padres on Thursday night.
