The chants of "U-S-A" in the visitors clubhouse after the game were partially reflecting the international news. But they also were celebrating an American tradition -- gorging oneself.

Bullpen catcher Dave Racaniello set the official visitors' clubhouse record at Citizens Bank Park with 14 cheese steaks consumed. The previous record had belonged to former major leaguer Dmitri Young.
