Phillies, Hernandez try to get back on track vs. San Fran
By Associated Press

The Phillies send Roberto Hernandez to the mound tonight as they try to even their home series with San Francisco.

Adam Duvall hit a two-run homer to spoil Cliff Lee's return from the disabled list and the Giants beat Philadelphia 7-4 in last night's opener. Former Phillie Hunter Pence had three hits and two RBIs, Buster Posey drove in two runs and the Giants remained tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the NL West.

Making his first start since May 18th because of an elbow injury, Lee allowed six runs and 12 hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Hernandez is 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA in his two career starts against San Francisco. Yusmeiro Petit (yoos-MEHR'-oh peh-TEE') starts tonight for San Francisco.

Eagles player charged with shoving Arizona officer
By Associated Press

A Philadelphia Eagles player is facing charges in Arizona after authorities say he pushed a police officer investigating a bar brawl.

Officials said Keelan Johnson, a first-year safety, was arrested early Saturday following a confrontation with officers outside a bar in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe, home of Arizona State University. Johnson played in 49 games for the school.

A probable cause statement says Johnson "violently pushed" an officer in the chest, causing him to strike his head against a tree. Police say Johnson appeared drunk and refused officers' orders.

He has been charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Eagles spokesman Derak Boyko said the team is disappointed in Johnson's arrest but is still trying to gather the facts.

It was not known if Johnson had an attorney.

Wesley's Kapepula earns 1st team preseason honor
By Sean Greene

Wesley linebacker Sosthene Kapepula has been named a 1st Team Division III Preseason All-American by the Beyond Sports Network.

Kapepula led the Wolverines with 110 tackles (19 for loss) in 2013. He has also been honored by Lindy's Sports as the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year. The senior is trying to be just the second Wolverine to lead Wesley in tackles for three straight seasons.

Cornerback Derrick Bender, offensive lineman Devin Filliben, and wide receiver Steve Koudossou earned second team nominations, with tight end Kyle George being selected to the third team.

No. 5 Wesley opens the season September 6 when they host Thomas More (Ky.) at Miller Stadium in Dover.
