The Phillies activated Pedro Feliz from the 15-day disabled list week, and asked what that meant to the team Charlie Manuel said a few things:

1) It provided the Phillies stronger defense at third base.

2) It strengthened the bench.

3) It boosted the lineup because Feliz seems to come up with clutch hits time to time.

We're not calling Manuel the next Nostradamus, but Feliz came off the bench last night to have two huge hits in last night's 5-2 victory in 11 innings over the Los Angeles Dodgers. He hit a game-tying single in the ninth inning and a game-winning three-run homer to left-center field in the 11th inning. The victory allowd the Phillies to move within a half-game behind the New York Mets in the National League East.

"If that doesn't inspire you or give you a lift, I don't think you like to play," Manuel said.
