Charlie Manuel curiously avoided using veteran righthander Chan Ho Park last night, despite a situation that seemed tailor made for his talents a multiple innings reliever. Today, Manuel explained why: Park was sick, one of several Phillies who have battled the flu bug over the past few days. Manuel said the team's training staff informed him that Park was under the weather just before the game. Thus, he decided to rely on J.A. Happ and righthander Chad Durbin, who combined to allow two runs in 2 2/3 innings.
Park is questionable for tonight's game.
