PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies are showing a glimpse of the future during the seasons last few weeks.With all the September call-ups now in Philadelphia, the team trotted out a young lineup Wednesday night with the oldest player on the lineup card all of 27 years old in catcher Cameron Rupp. It looks like the Phillies will continue to let some new players get comfortable in the big leagues, including when they close out a series with Pittsburgh at 7:05 p.m. Thursday night.One of the most recent additions for the Phillies has been center fielder Roman Quinn, who has six hits through his first four major league games. After going hitless in his debut Sunday, the 23-year-old has had three consecutive two-hit games, including a 2-for-5 showing Wednesday with a double.He also threw out a runner at home plate in the ninth inning of the Phillies 6-2 victory on Wednesday night.Hes an aggressive hitter, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said of Quinn. He can run. He can throw. He covers a lot of ground in the outfield and its a good first impression in the big leagues.The Phillies offense is also getting production from 26-year-old Freddy Galvis, who has found his power stroke recently. Galvis hit his 19th homer of the season Wednesday night, his eighth in 24 games.Philadelphia is looking for a win in the four-game series, while Pittsburgh is trying to avoid sinking further into a tailspin that has dropped the team six games out of a National League Wild Card spot. The Pirates have lost 13 of 16 and sit four games below .500 at 70-74.In those 16 games, the Pirates have been held to two runs or less six times, including Wednesday when they grounded into a trio of inning-ending double plays.We hit into three double plays on the night, and unfortunately thats been a common theme, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. If you dont meet the demands of the game, you put yourself in positions to lose. We had opportunities to meet those demands but we didnt do it.The Phillies are sending one of their most-seasoned starters to the mound in the series finale. Jerad Eickhoff will face the Pirates for the first time in his career.Eickhoff, 26, is in his second major league season and will be making his 30th start of the season for the Phillies. He has a 3.73 ERA on the season and has been consistent in his last five starts -- all of which have lasted exactly six innings. Eickhoff dealt six scoreless innings against the Nationals in his last start, but left with a no decision.He will be opposed by one of the potential Pirates arms of the future in Chad Kuhl. A 24-year-old rookie, Kuhl enters his 11th major league start with a 4.09 ERA.Kuhl had a rough start his last time out, surrendering three runs on four hits and three walks in just two innings against the Cardinals on Sept. 5. The Pirates skipped his turn in the rotation after the start.Kuhl will be pitching near where he grew up. The right-hander is from Bear, Del. and played high school baseball in Middletown, Del., a town just about 60 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

A look at key anniversaries in British Open history:150 years ago (1866): Willie Park Sr. won his third British Open at Prestwick by posting the lowest scores of the opening two rounds (54-56) to build a five-shot lead. He closed with a 59 for a two-shot victory over his brother, David Park. Old Tom Morris finished fourth, while Young Tom Morris finished ninth in his second Open. Twelve players completed the championship. All of them were from Scotland. Parks first prize was 6 pounds.---125 years ago (1891): In the final year that the British Open was contested over 36 holes in one day, Hugh Kirkaldy had rounds of 83-83 to beat his brother, Andrew Kirkaldy, and Willie Fernie by two shots at St. Andrews. Andrew Kirkaldy took a 6 at the Road Hole and had a putt to tie his brother. He wound up three-putting. Hugh Kirkaldy won 10 pounds for his only Open title. It was the third runner-up finish for Andrew Kirkaldy.---100 years ago (1916): The British Open was canceled because of World War I.---75 years ago (1941): The British Open was canceled because of World War II.---50 years ago (1966): Jack Nicklaus became the fourth player to complete the career Grand Slam with his one-shot victory over Doug Sanders and Dave Thomas at Muirfield. This was the first time the Open was contested over four days (one year after the U.S. Open went to four days), though it still ended on Saturday. Nicklaus made birdie at the par-5 17th to break a three-way tie and his par on No. 18 gave him his sixth professional major.---25 years ago (1991): Ian Baker-Finch won his only major with a 64-66 weekend at Royal Birkdale for a two-shot victory over Mike HHarwood.dddddddddddd Seven years earlier, Baker-Finch had a share of the 54-hole lead and shot 79. This time, he had a one-shot lead and made five birdies in the opening seven holes to seize control. Jodie Mudd tied for fifth by becoming the first player in British Open history to post a 63 in the final round. Payne Stewart matched the feat two years later.---20 years ago (1996): Tom Lehman, who had endured close calls at the Masters (1994) and U.S Open (1995, 1996), finally broke through with a ball-striking exhibition at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He was at 198 after three rounds, and even closing with a 73, no one could catch him. Ernie Els closed with a 67 and tied for second, two shots behind. He remembers being in the clubhouse hopeful of Lehman making two bogeys. Sitting next to him was Tiger Woods, the 20-year-old amateur consulting Els on whether he should go pro. Tom made par and Tiger turned pro. I was (doomed) either way, Els said. Woods tied for 22nd and turned pro a month later.---10 years ago (2006): One month after missing the cut for the first time in a major, Tiger Woods won the British Open for the second straight year after holding off a strong challenge from Chris DiMarco. Woods closed with a 67 at Royal Liverpool for a two-shot victory and sobbed on the 18th green. It was his first victory since his father died two months earlier of cancer. Woods became the first player since Tom Watson (1982-83) to win back-to-back in the British Open. His 11th major tied him with Walter Hagen.
