SAN FRANCISCO - We're not in Philadelphia anymore, Toto. We're in the Land of Odds. You could tell because the weather here Tuesday was reminiscent of foggy London in the morning, sunny Miami at midday, and windy Chicago later. Other giveaways were the single-masted schooner about where Tony Luke's would be at Citizens Bank Park, a Thai sports bar, and a coffee shop across the street from the ballpark that was as crowded as the bars and where, a few hours before Game 3 of the NL Championship Series, several patrons were playing chess.

Ryan White, the 9-year-old Lower Makefield boy who was critically hurt by a hit-and-run driver after a Phillies game in San Francisco 12 days ago, has been transferred to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, his grandfather said Tuesday. Ryan was discharged from San Francisco General Hospital on Monday and flown to Philadelphia, where he was taken directly to CHOP, said Walter White of Northeast Philadelphia. "Everybody's happy that he's making progress," the grandfather said outside Ryan's house.

The Phillies have a rematch with the San Francisco Giants when they open a four-game series at AT&T Park on Thursday night. Although they lost last year's National League Championship Series and a three-game series last week at Citizens Bank Park to San Francisco, Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay said Wednesday that the games that matter most are the ones that have the word playoff before them. "Obviously you want to win games regardless of who you're playing," Halladay said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Minus his old signature toothpick, Cincinnati's Dusty Baker leaned against the batting cage intently watching his players just as he did for a decade managing the Giants. Baker is back in the Bay Area for the playoffs, 10 years after he came so close to winning a World Series with San Francisco. "Well, I really don't have much choice," Baker said when asked if it's a strange coincidence. "I feel comfortable here. I think my team likes coming here. This is a good town.

SAN FRANCISCO - These are the things so hard to explain in baseball, and just a few of the many reasons the San Francisco Giants are two wins away from a world championship. In the fifth inning of San Francisco's 9-0 victory in Game 2 of the World Series at AT&T Park, Texas second baseman Ian Kinsler crushed a ball to center, nearly 399 feet from home plate. It was a home run. Had to be. But the ball bounced off the top of the wall, and its backspin carried it into the glove of Andres Torres.

Let it rain The Nationals are weatherproof, says Washington slugger Ryan Zimmerman, after powering a wet and wild 14-6 win over the Colorado Rockies in a steady drizzle in Denver on Thursday. The Nats set a season high in runs in the game, called after eight innings when the conditions worsened. "It seems like the last week, we've played in this [weather] every single night," Zimmerman said. "I guess we're getting used to it. " Looking through raindrops at the plate, Zimmerman hit two homers and drove in a career-high six runs.

SAN FRANCISCO - The nightmares will not cease because this was merely Game 111 in a season that promises more than 162 for these Phillies. They entered this ballpark by the bay Thursday for the first time since last October, when great expectations were inexplicably spoiled by a team with absolutely nothing to lose. The very sight of AT&T Park jogged undesirable memories - Cody Ross slapping an unhittable pitch; Juan Uribe stroking a game-ending fly ball; and Matt Cain two-hitting his way through a broken lineup.

SAN FRANCISCO - Placido Polanco moved gingerly around the visitors clubhouse at AT&T Park after Saturday's game. A day later, he left before the rest of his teammates and boarded a flight bound for Philadelphia three days early. He is headed home for a battery of tests on his sore left hip Monday by team physician Michael Ciccotti . This latest development is not encouraging, especially since it's the latest in a litany of body parts to fail the 35-year-old Phillies third baseman this season.

The Giants sure are tough to eliminate this postseason. Barry Zito and the Giants gave themselves at least one more game in the NL Championship Series with a 5-0 victory Friday in St. Louis that forced Sunday's Game 6 back at AT&T Park. Just where the NL West winners want to be with their season on the line - in front of the raucous, orange-towel-waving sellout crowd. "It's great to be back in San Francisco. There is no tomorrow," Giants rightfielder and ex-Phillie Hunter Pence said.

SAN FRANCISCO — In the middle of the visitors clubhouse, Shane Victorino adjusted his cufflinks and prepared to speak. He was calm now, but agitated. His teammates had already rushed inside to watch replays of the brawl between the Giants. They laughed, yelled and smiled. A 9-2 victory over San Francisco was sweeter than usual. "What a game," said Brian Schneider, the one who ended up on the bottom of the pile. "An intense game. " Victorino monitored his comments now. For sure, he said, Ramon Ramirez was throwing at him on purpose.

SAN FRANCISCO - The guy in the Chase Utley shirt watched Ben Francisco get his second strike: "He's going to get a fastball and he'll . . . strike out. " This was in the second inning Wednesday night at AT&T Park, just behind Section 134. Francisco got a fastball. He took a big roundhouse cut. Francisco struck out. Utley guy: "Another round?" His buddy in the Roy Halladay jersey: "Another round. I got it. " A creeping fatalism marked the mood of Phillies fans in attendance here in the early innings of Game 4 of the National League Championship Series.
