Austin didn't stun too many folks with his batting practice, but his appearance kicked off a fun night in Philadelphia. Curt Schilling pitched a complete game, giving up two runs on eight hits for his 13th win of the season. This improved the Phillies record to 46-38 and was the first time they reached eight games over .500 since 1995.
