NUMBER OF THE DAY

Anniversary of the day

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel

On the crowd noise for Saturday's game 3 in Philadelphia

"It's going to be loud. (As a ) matter of fact, our place is going to probably be the loudest that we've (heard) this year. The last game we played in Philadelphia, whether you realize it or not, it was louder than Milwaukee. And Milwaukee had the thunder sticks, and it was pretty loud."

Rays manager Joe Maddon

On his hands-off approach to the clubhouse

"I truly try to stay out of their way as much as I possibly can. I don't want to impact the clubhouse when it's running this well. I attempted to impact it when it was running poorly, but when it's running well, it's because of the people in that group and the impact they have."
