Friday The losses just keep coming. And reliever LaTroy Hawkins usually is in the middle of it. Hawkins blew this one by attempting to turn a double play with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Instead Hawkins' throw hit runner Jose Offerman's helmet and ricocheted into the crowd, allowing two runs to score. Final: Phillies 3, Cubs 2. "I couldn't hit [the helmet] again if I needed to," said Hawkins, which speaks volumes of his control.
