Phillies third baseman Placido Polanco missed his second straight game Sunday with what he said was inflammation in his left elbow.

The team's leading hitter with a .318 average, Polanco indicated he probably would need a shot of cortisone. If so, it would be his second cortisone treatment this season. He originally injured the elbow April 21 when he was hit by a pitch during a game in Atlanta. After receiving a cortisone shot for the elbow in late May, he missed six games.

Polanco aggravated the injury Friday while diving for a ball. He said swinging a bat irritates his elbow.

"He's day-to-day," manager Charlie Manuel said.

Polanco wore a compression sleeve Sunday. Wilson Valdez played third base in his absence.

Francisco's big day

Ben Francisco had his first three-hit game of the season with a single and two doubles in the 11-2 rout of Toronto. He also drove in a pair of runs.

Francisco benefited from the Phils' recent run of interleague games because of the designated hitter rule. He started seven of the last 11 games after getting only six starts in the previous 56.

"I hit a lot in the cage, but it's a lot different because the ball doesn't move," Francisco said. "It's nice to get some at-bats so you can feel how your swing is doing and the adjustments you have to make."

Francisco started in left field while Raul Ibanez was the DH. Manuel indicated he may give Francisco more playing time, perhaps even at the expense of Ibanez.

"I like Ben's bat," Manuel said. "You're always looking for somebody to produce and you never know. The more you hit, the more playing time you're going to get and you can beat people out. [Ryan] Howard, [Shane] Victorino, they proved you can beat people out."

Madson rehabs

Reliever Ryan Madson made a one-inning rehab appearance for single-A Clearwater on Sunday and allowed a homer, with one strikeout. Madson has been on the disabled list since April 30 with a broken right toe.

Extra bases

Since the three-game weekend series will count as home games for the Blue Jays, their average "home" attendance rose from 17,555 to 19,431 after the series attracted 130,073. The series was moved to Philadelphia because of security concerns related to the G-20 summit in Toronto. . . . The Phils finished interleague play 10-8. This marks only the fifth time in 14 seasons that they ended above .500 against American League teams. . . . Only five of the Phils' 11 runs were earned, as Toronto committed four errors. . . . Jamie Moyer is 5-2 with a 2.94 ERA in seven starts at Citizens Bank Park. He has held opposing hitters to a .176 average and has walked only four in those seven starts.
