PHILLIES 5, CARDINALS 4
Last season the commissioner's office instituted what it calls a heads-up program for umpires: Before each series umps are now given a report that highlights any bad blood between the teams that could lead to a beanball war. Here's an incident that makes the next meeting between Philadelphia and St. Louis, on Aug. 17 at Busch Stadium, worth a heads up. With Philadelphia leading 2-0 and none out in the eighth inning, Cards manager Tony La Russa brought in lefthander Steve Kline to pitch to rookie shortstop Jimmy Rollins. After getting ahead 2 and 0, Rollins hammered a fastball into the leftfield seats for a two-run homer. As he finished his swing, Rollins flipped his bat away with a haughty flick of the wrists, an act of cool that incensed Kline. As Kline, who had not allowed a home run this season, watched Rollins tour the bases, he yelled at him the entire way. "You don't do that s- - -," said Kline, who was pulled three batters later. "I'll flip his helmet next time. A rookie has to respect the game for a while,"
