Philadelphia Phillies 

Phillies seek series victory at Dodger Stadium

The Phillies have won only two of their last 15 four-game series, but they can win this one at Dodger Stadium with a victory in Thursday's finale. They'll send Kyle Kendrick against Los Angeles' Dan Haren.

Phillies fall short in Hamels' return

Cole Hamels held the Dodgers to two runs on six hits in six innings, striking out five on Wednesday night in his 2014 debut, but the Phillies were held in check by Zack Greinke, who struck out 11.

Phils' top lefty prospect Biddle stays hot in Double-A

For the second straight start, left-hander Jesse Biddle dominated opposing hitters. The Phillies' No. 2 prospect struck out 10 batters in seven shutout innings Wednesday, leading Double-A Reading to a 1-0 victory against Richmond.

Phils send Rosenberg to Triple-A to regroup

B.J. Rosenberg was optioned on Wednesday to make room for left-hander Cole Hamels. The Phillies hope the right-handed reliever can get back on track at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Adams' presence is felt early on

Right-hander Mike Adams threw a perfect eighth inning Tuesday against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in his second appearance of the season. It came in a big spot with the game tied.

Asche loses more time to Galvis

Cody Asche started eight of the season's first 10 games, but just five of the past 11. On Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, Asche started his third consecutive game on the bench. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg chose Freddy Galvis to start at third base.

Campaign to get Allen on Hall ballot in full swing

Former Phillies grounds-crew member Mark (Frog) Carfagno is campaigning to get former slugger Dick Allen on the Hall of Fame's Golden Era ballot this year.

Phillies cash in on Dodgers' error in 10th inning

The breaks finally fell the Phillies' way on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, as a two-base error on Carlos Ruiz's fly ball to left field preceded Domonic Brown's game-winning double in the 10th inning, giving Philadelphia its third straight victory.

Utley gets a break despite solid numbers in LA

Despite good career numbers against Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu and at Dodger Stadium in general, Chase Utley was given Tuesday night off, while Freddy Galvis started for the Phillies at second base.

Hamels' return gives Phils rare healthy status

When left-hander Cole Hamels is activated off the disabled list on Wednesday, it will be just the sixth day over the past two-plus seasons that the Phillies haven't had a starting position player or member of the rotation on the disabled list.

Lee retires 20 straight Dodgers in four-hit gem

Cliff Lee pitched brilliantly in a 7-0 victory over the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Monday night, allowing four hits and striking out 10 in eight scoreless innings in the first game of a four-game set.

Phillies give struggling Asche a breather

The first 18 games of the season have been a struggle for Phillies third baseman Cody Asche, so it was no surprise that the left-handed hitter was not in Monday's lineup against Dodgers left-hander Paul Maholm at Dodger Stadium.

Phils seek retroactive cycle for Howard

The Phillies have submitted Ryan Howard's seventh-inning single on Sunday at Coors Field to Major League Baseball for review. If it's ruled a double as they hope, Howard will have hit for the cycle.

Stairs returns to site of 2008 NLCS heroics

Phillies broadcaster Matt Stairs opened Monday's broadcast in the right-field bleachers at Dodger Stadium, where he crushed a game-winning home run in Game 4 of the 2008 National League Championship Series. Stairs said he hears about the home run every day.

No memory pays off for Papelbon at Coors Field

The first time Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon saw Coors Field was back in June 2010. It wasn't pretty.

Mayberry replaces Howard at first late in win

Ryan Howard had a huge game offensively Sunday at Coors Field, but with a two-run lead Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg had John Mayberry Jr. replace him at first base in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Phils, Rox use replay three times in eventful finale

The Phillies and Rockies had three replay challenges Sunday in a wild game at Coors Field that ended in a 10-9 win for Philadelphia.

Hoping to spur lagging offense, Phils take extra work

Held without an extra-base hit since Monday, the Phillies took batting practice on Sunday morning to get some extra work in.

Phils enduring collision rule growing pains

Twice in one week the Phillies had a play at home where a catcher blocked the plate before he received the ball. Both times the home plate umpire called out the baserunner, and both times a manager asked the play to be reviewed under Collision Rule 7.13 to see if the catcher blocked the plate illegally.

Phillies break out of offensive funk in wild affair

Ryan Howard finished a double shy of the cycle while Jimmy Rollins tallied three hits and two RBIs as the Phillies edged out the Rockies, 10-9, on Sunday in Colorado.

Phillies continue to struggle at the plate, drop series

The Phillies continued their offensive hibernation in a 3-1 loss to the Rockies at Coors Field on Saturday night, dropping them to 7-10 and into last place in the National League East.

Play at plate overturned on collision rule

The Rockies scored first Saturday night in Coors Field after a bang-bang play at the plate was overturned when it was determined that Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz violated the new collision rule.

Hamels will bring Phillies rotation to full strength

Cole Hamels is set to make his first start of the season Wednesday against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. He opened on the disabled list because of inflammation in his left shoulder. His recovery following a setback March 1 cost him three starts.

Phillies plan to ease Adams in slowly

Mike Adams pitched in a big league game for the first time since having surgery July 31. He threw a perfect inning with two groundball outs on Friday. The Phillies plan to ease in Adams slowly until he shows he is capable of returning to a late-inning role.

Phils look to Camp to buoy bullpen

The Phillies promoted ShawnCamp to the big leagues Friday night, optioning right-hander Jonathan Pettibone to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make room for him on the 25-man roster.

Pettibone's troubles at Coors Field continue

Phillies starter Jonathan Pettibone allowed nine hits, eight runs, two walks and one home run in four innings in a 12-1 loss to the Rockies.

Prospect Biddle shaves ERA with best start of season

After not making it out of the fourth inning in his last start, left-hander Jesse Biddle delivered his best start of the season Friday, leading Double-A Reading to a 6-2 victory against Harrisburg.

Hamels likely to face Dodgers on Wednesday

When Cole Hamels comes off the DL, he is most likely to start Wednesday against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium because it would allow the Phillies to split up left-handers Cliff Lee and Hamels with right-hander A.J. Burnett.

Howard working on improving walk rate

Ryan Howard, who is hitting .231 with three home runs and seven RBIs, is averaging a walk every 6.20 plate appearances this season, which is the second-best rate of his career. He averaged a walk every 6.06 plate appearances since 2007, but had averaged a walk only every 10.29 plate appearances from 2010-13.

Phils finally get starting lineup on field together

Struggling third baseman Cody Asche also has had a few days off, including the previous two games. Asche entered Friday hitting .184 (7-for-38) with one home run and three RBIs.
