Worth noting

• Schierholtz started in center field for the second straight game on Saturday. In his first career start at the position in Friday's 3-1 win, Schierholtz caught the only fly ball that was hit his way. "He definitely can go toward the alley and get the ball in right field, and I wanted to see him play in center," manager Charlie Manuel said, adding Schierholtz has a strong arm. "We can definitely experiment [with] some guys there."

• Former Phillies catcher and recent Hall of Fame inductee Tim McCarver threw out of the ceremonial first pitch before Saturday's game. Fellow Hall of Famer Steve Carlton, McCarver's former battery mate, was on the receiving end of the pitch.

• The Stephen Starr-Garry Maddox Barbeque Challenge was held outside Citizens Bank Park on Saturday afternoon as part of the Phillies Alumni weekend.
