NEW YORK (AP) - Philadelphia Phillies closer Brad Lidge has gone on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained right knee.

The move was announced before Tuesday's series opener at the New
York Mets and was retroactive to Sunday.

Lidge is 13 for 19 in save attempts this season with an 0-3 record and 7.27 ERA in 28 games. Last year, he was 41 for 41 in save chances as Philadelphia won its second World Series title and first since 1980.

Philadelphia filled the roster spot by purchasing the contract of catcher Paul Bako from Double-A Reading.
