NOTES: This is Morgan's first start at Double-A. He replaces Austin Hyatt, who was promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, in the Reading rotation. Morgan and Hyatt were rotation-mates at the University of Alabama. ... Tyson Gillies, the third piece of the trade that sent Cliff Lee to the Mariners, is back with the R-Phils. ... Trenton put playoff tickets on sale today. You can get them at this link or by calling 609-394-3300. Playoffs start on Sept. 5 with best-of-five series between (probably) Trenton and either Reading or New Britain. ... The Thunder are having a 3-D fireworks show tonight. Normally, I loathe fireworks, but this piques even my interest a little.
