Shane Victorino, peacemaker

Fightin' Phils? Not this time.

Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino helped defuse a potentially nasty situation outside of the Rittenhouse Square bistro Rouge Thursday night.

A bystander who asked for anonymity said two groups of patrons -- regulars and some folks unfamiliar to Rouge staff -- were exchanging nasty words inside the restaurant, near a table occupied by Victorino and a group of his friends.

Victorino, who's listed as 5-foot-9, noticed tempers growing more frayed as they all stepped outside. He joined the combatants on the sidewalk, telling them to knock it off.
