Phillies Fall to Nats. For some reason we feel like seven solid innings out of Kyle Kendrick—when he only gives up two runs—should be enough to get it done. But, the Phils found a way to prove us wrong. [Phillies]

PPA Aide Gets Six Figures from DROP. You’ve got to love DROP. The deferred retirement program is going to help a PPA employee retire next year with a six-figure pension and a payment of $522,183. [Inquirer]

Made in America Lineup. In what may be considered the least organized concert lineup announcement of all time, we learned yesterday that Pearl Jam and Passion Pit would be playing Jay-Z’s Made in America festival. We’re still waiting for about 10 acts to be announced. [Inquirer]

Sixers Get Smoked. Ugh. It was close for a while, but the Sixers lost to the Celtics late in yesterday’s game. Not that it would have made a difference, but the refs weren’t exactly much help. [Sixers]

Two A.C. Tourists Stabbed to Death. Two Canadian tourists in Atlantic City are dead after what police are calling a random stabbing. An officer apprehended the suspect at the time of the attack. It’s believed that the suspect is schizophrenic and was off of her medication. [6 ABC]
