Brian Anderson hit a three-run homer in Miami's eight-run fifth, sending the Marlins to a 10-5 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.

    Federal judge sides with Philadelphia against anti-gay adoption agency

    A federal judge has ruled against Catholic Social Services (CSS), which sued the city of Philadelphia over its purported right to refuse service to same-sex couples. The judge found that the agency had no inherent right to a government contract, particularly given it was operating in violation of the contract it had. The suit arose after Philadelphia announced in May that it was suspending foster care placements at both CSS and another agency, Bethany Christian Services, after the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that both agencies refused to place children with same-sex couples in violation of the city's Fair Practices Ordinance. Bethany ultimately agreed to comply with the nondiscrimination law,

    What if Manny Machado didn't come to Philadelphia alone?
