MIAMI - The immediate sensation from being struck in the head by a 78-m.p.h. curveball was not enough to prevent Carlos Ruiz from catching the final three innings of a 14-inning win over the Marlins on Thursday. But Ruiz suffered a concussion that night, and there has been no progress since. His injury "is maybe a little more serious than we originally thought, unfortunately," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday. "He's had concussion issues in the past, so we have to be careful with him. " Ruiz did not travel with the team.

MIAMI - Cliff Lee is tentatively on tap to pitch in his first game in more than 6 weeks on Sunday. After throwing in a simulated game for the second time in 5 days, Lee will start for Class A Clearwater, barring a setback. The lefthander could return to the Phillies' rotation before the All-Star break. If his return doesn't come until after the break, Lee will likely make three starts before the July 31 trade deadline. Even though he turns 36 in August and was diagnosed with a left elbow strain less than 2 months ago, Lee could attract interest among contending teams if he looks like the pitcher who had a 3.18 ERA in 10 starts this season when he does make his return.

Two days after Carlos Ruiz was struck in the head by a 78-m.p.h. curveball, there was scant clarity on the extent of his concussion. The Phillies catcher was placed on the seven-day disabled list Friday, arrived early Saturday for an examination, and was sent home prior to the team's doubleheader against Atlanta. Ruiz can be activated Friday at the earliest. When asked if there was an indication as to how much time Ruiz would miss, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said: "No. Not at all. " The Phillies started 35-year-old veteran Koyie Hill at catcher in Saturday's first game.

When they pull the plug on this Phillies season, the obituary will say that the team died at home. The list of causes will be long, but ultimately the Phillies' inability to win in their own ballpark will be the primary reason they faded out of contention in a winnable division. Citizens Bank Park had always been the place where the Phillies flourish. They had a winning record in nine of their first 10 seasons here, playing at a .563 winning percentage. This season, it is the place where they give away games and lose the modicum of momentum they have sometimes gained on the road.

THE PHILLIES placed Carlos Ruiz on the 7-day disabled list with concussionlike systems yesterday, about an hour before the game against the Braves. In the 11th inning of the team's 14-inning win Thursday night, a 1-1 breaking ball from Marlins righthander A.J. Ramos plunked Ruiz in the head. The Phillies' catcher remained in the game for the final few innings. Cameron Rupp caught Kyle Kendrick last night. To fill Ruiz's spot on the active roster, the Phillies selected the contract of Koyie Hill from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

RYNE SANDBERG has no other options. That is his primary problem in leftfield. You saw it in the moments of hesitation he needed after each question to summon diplomatic words. You heard it when he said that every time Domonic Brown walks to the plate, "I have confidence that might be the time that he pops one. " You felt it when somebody asked, "Where do you go from here?" and he answered, "Go through tomorrow and figure out a lineup. " Good luck figurin'. Even on a night when Brown's egregious misplay of a ball in leftfield led to all of the Marlins' runs in a 3-2 win over the Phillies, it was difficult to pinpoint where Sandberg should turn.

ST. LOUIS - When Ryan Howard is hitting like this, the Phillies are a tough team to ignore. After a three-game sweep of Atlanta in which he drove in six runs, the first baseman drove in three in a 4-1 victory last night over the Cardinals. It is the first time the Phillies have won more than three games in a row in more than a year: since early June 2013. Howard, a St. Louis native, entered the night with some ridiculous career numbers at Busch Stadium, including a .368 batting average, .512 on-base percentage, .695 slugging percentage, and nine home runs in 123 plate appearances.

Had the Phillies shown up on Father's Day and played like men intent on having some say in the National League East race, this would have been a good time to point out that they are about to begin a brutal sequence of games against a lot of good teams and some great pitchers. There is no reason to do that, however. None whatsoever, because it was obvious after the offense's latest disappearing act that this team has no chance to be anything but dead and buried by the end of the 35-game stretch that begins Monday night against the first-place Atlanta Braves.

THE MODEST three-game winning streak the Phillies took into their weekend series with the Chicago Cubs didn't do much to dull the senses of the man in charge of maintaining the team's high-salaried-but-underachieving roster. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr., in his sixth year on the job, is well aware of the advantages of the July 31 trade deadline. He made impactful moves in each of his first 4 years on the job, trading for the likes to Cliff Lee and Hunter Pence, and also trading away Shane Victorino and Pence.

Jimmy Rollins put himself in the Phillies record books, but his feat couldn't ignite a sagging offense. Rollins ninth-inning, lead-off double to right field gave him 2,234 hits, tying Mike Schmidt's franchise record in the Phillies' 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Friday night at Citizens Bank Park. Rollins hit a 1-0 fastball from Cubs righthander Neil Ramirez for his record-tying hit. "It is something I did want to do at home," Rollins said about the record. "A couple of years ago, I reached 2,000 hits in Cincinnati, and I told my wife I really didn't care where that happened, but when the hits record comes up, I would like it to be at home.
