The John Bowker Era is Over

The John Bowker Era is Over

The John Bowker era in Philadelphia is over. The Phillies have released the forgotten Phillie to allow him to pursue career options in Japan. Bowker appeared in 12 games for the Phillies in 2011, getting 13 plate appearances and getting on base exactly zero times with seven strikeouts taboot.

As you can see from the above photo, he also seems to have played right field at some point in the season. Not successfully, it appears. Who knew.

Phillies beat writer David Hale puts his career in perspective, "Bowker’s 13 plate appearances without a hit or a walk are the sixth most by any player in team history. Here’s the list…"

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
