• The Phillies' bullpen worked 4 2/3 innings without allowing a hit, walk or hit by pitch on Thursday against the Padres, their first such outing since they went five perfect innings on May 22, 1998, at Montreal.
• Philadelphia relievers rank last in the Majors in walk rate (10.6 percent), but have not issued a free pass in six straight games, spanning 15 2/3 innings. They have racked up 18 strikeouts over that period.
• Sandberg used the same lineup -- minus the pitcher's spot -- for the second day in a row after the Phillies scored their most runs since Aug. 8 in Thursday's 10-5 win.
