The Phils Put Utley and Polanco on the DL

Half of the Phillies infield is now off the field, but they still beat the Reds. Plus: A new Battle of Gettysburg heats up, a Cunningham family tragedy, and more of what Philadelphia is talking about this morning

The Phils Take the Reds in the 10th, But Lose Half the Infield. Chase is out for 15 days for his thumb injury, and Placido (currently the leading third baseman in All-Star voting) may be looking at the same. [InquirerThe700Level]

Randall Cunningham’s Son Drowns. A sad story out of Las Vegas — the retired Eagles QB’s two-year-old son, Christian, was found floating in the family’s outdoor hot tub yesterday but couldn’t be revived. The elder Cunningham was away on a trip at the time of the drowning. [NBC Philadelphia]

But General Lee Already Gambled There — There’s Precedent. Just a day before the 147th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Gettysburg, 272 historians and historical groups have sent a letter to the Pennsylvania gaming board opposing a 600-slot casino half a mile from the battlefield. The casino’s developer retorts that battle sites in Vicksburg, Miss., and Harpers Ferry, W.Va., both have casinos nearby. Do we really want to start this all over again? [Inquirer]

Who Guards the Guards?: A 60-year-old Drexel Hill Middle School crossing guard has been arrested for allegedly attacking a 14-year-old who’d called him “fatso” during the school year. However, in a nod to duty, he made sure traffic was properly stopped first. [Daily News]

Oh, So That’s Where Pink Is Popular: Forbes has just released its annual 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list, and local songstress Pink lands at #27 on the strength of her recent (and apparently massively profitable) overseas tour. Other formerly Philly folks who made the list: Kobe Bryant at #14, Bruce Springsteen at #17, and Tina Fey squeaking in at #90. Dropping off this year were Will Smith and failed arena football impresario Bon Jovi.
