Dicky Betts Rocks Maddie's

Dicky Betts Rocks Maddie's

Editor's note: Posted by Scott R.

Dicky Betts, former lead guitarist and one of the founding members of the Allman Brothers, rocked Maddie's in Malvern in front of a sold out crowd last night. Dicky took the stage at 8:47 and the crowd went wild. Some 1st set highlights included Statesboro Blues, Stormy Monday (the girl singing had some great pipes) and an awesome version of Blue Sky.

Unfortunately my compadres were a little too loopy to make it past the first song of the 2nd set, but I kept on keepin' on. And I was not disappointed. He jammed out Southbound and a great Elizabeth Reed just to name a few. I also got to see two hot chics making out. Maddie's was about 80% guys and I think everyone's attention was focused on these two at one time or another. It was hot.

For the encore Dicky gave us Jessica and Ramblin' Man. Jessica was phenominal, he could have walked off stage after that and I would have been ecstatic, but no, he goes into Ramblin' Man....unbelievable. The show ended at 12:12 with the crowd going insane. The guy is a legend.

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

Union see 4-game winning streak end in shutout loss to Real Salt Lake

BOX SCORE

SANDY, Utah -- Joao Plata scored his first goal of the season and Real Salt Lake beat the Union, 1-0, on Saturday night to snap Philadelphia's club-record winning streak at four games.

Plata tapped in his goal in the 36th minute after quickly exchanging short passes twice with Jefferson Savarino. Tony Beltran got the play started by saving the ball just before it went over the goal line.

The Union (4-5-5) had a chance to tie it in stoppage time, but goalie Nick Rimando blocked Haris Medunjanin's belt-high free kick and Salt Lake (4-8-2) cleared it after a scramble in front of the net.

Union goalkeeper Andre Blake made seven saves.

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick makes 4th rehab appearance in Lehigh Valley

Howie Kendrick on Saturday night made his fourth rehab appearance in Triple A during Lehigh Valley's 13-1 rout of the Louisville Bats in Allentown.

Kendrick went 1 for 5 with a run scored and three strikeouts. He also grounded into a double play and left two runners in scoring position.

It was his second rehab game playing third base. He played third during his appearance in the IronPigs' 8-4 loss Thursday to the Indianapolis Indians. He was 0 for 1 in three plate appearances with a run scored and was hit by a pitch twice (see story).

The Phillies' plan for Kendrick was to have him play a minimum four games at Lehigh Valley. He played left field in two games and third base twice. Pete Mackanin said Wednesday that Kendrick would also get a game at first base but he hasn't gotten a game at first yet.

There is a chance Kendrick could be recalled Sunday before the Phillies’ series finale against the Cincinnati Reds depending on how he feels.

Kendrick has been sidelined since April 15 with an oblique strain. In 10 games before the injury, Kendrick went 13 for 39 (.333) with five extra-base hits and four walks while exclusively playing left field.
