Phillies starter Vicente Padilla (1-1) flashed his 2002 All-Star form as he struck out nine, walked none and scattered 10 hits in an impressive seven-inning effort that saved an already frazzled bullpen, Thome closed the demolition with a three-run, 400-foot-plus tracer off Joey Dawley that snapped an O-for-13 funk and a two-run bolt that moved him past Darryl Strawberry and into a tie with Joe Ad-cock for 75th nlace on the all-time NATIONAL EAST Philadelphia Montreal New York Atlanta Florida CENTRAL Houston St Louis Chicago Pittsburgh Cincinnati Milwaukee W s 4 4 3 3 W S 4 S 5 3 2 .625 .500 .500 J33 J33 .714 .667 .625 .625 t .250 WEST W L Pet San Francisco 8 1 .889 Colorado 4 3 SIX Los Angeles 5 5 300 San Diego 4 6 .4H Arizona 2 7 Xi z-first game was a win Tuesday's Results Chicago 6, Montreal 1 ' N.Y. 4, Florida 2 Cincinnati 2, Houston 1, 10 in.

Bowa had to urge Thome, on pace for 182 RBIs, to take a reluctant curtain call during the 25th multiple homer game of his career. "You want to show them the love, too," said Thome, who will give the souvenir ball for his first NX. HR to his dad. "You want to respect the crowd, but you also want to respect the other team." Burrell said there won't be a friendly home run rivalry between he and Thome. "He's an animal," Burrell laughed. "Check the back of his baseball card. I'm learning." Both sluggers credited leadoff men Rollins and Placido Polanco for setting things up, reaching base six times and scoring six runs. "That put a lot of pressure on them," Burrell said. Rheal Cormier tidied up in vintage Randy Johnson fashion in a game that often resembled one of those parallel universes often found in Superman comics.

Extra innings: Kevin Millwood won't start tonight even though his right groin, strain has healed. Bowa fears he'd aggravate it on the unforgiving, frozen Vet carpet in what figures to be miserable conditions. "Lf it were up to me, I don't think Td look at the smart side of it," said Millwood, whose next outing will be Sunday in CincinnatL "I'd want to pitch and that's the only thing I would look at That's really not the smart way to look at it." Joe Roa will start instead. ... Third baseman David Bell's sore back is vastly improved and he should be returning tonight. Bell had a similar injury during the 2001 playoffs. ...
