MIAMI - What's likely to go down as the worst Phillies season in 54 years is, finally, on the brink of being over. There are 10 games remaining on the 2015 schedule. The Phillies will play tonight in Miami, three times this weekend in Washington, and then come home to say "So long" to Citizens Bank Park for the final time after a forgettable, woeful summer of baseball. Many of the veterans have been traded and enough of the younger players have been evaluated, giving management an idea of what the Phillies have going into another offseason of transition.

MIAMI - For the first time since becoming the Phillies' closer, Ken Giles blew a save. Giles surrendered a run in the 10th inning of the Phillies' 4-3, 11-inning loss to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night at Marlins Park. Dee Gordon walked off the game an inning later with a two-out double off Jerome Williams. The loss dropped the Phillies to 57-95 on the season, 4.5 games worse than baseball's next-worst team, the Atlanta Braves, who defeated the first-place New York Mets on Wednesday.

MIAMI - The last season in which Carlos Ruiz caught fewer innings than he will in this one was when he first broke into the lineup by filling in for an injured Mike Lieberthal. That was 2006, Lieberthal's final season with the Phillies, and the last year before this one in which Ruiz was not the team's primary catcher. In the seasons between, Ruiz won a World Series, played in an All-Star Game and handled one of the best starting staffs in modern baseball history. No one has caught more no-hitters than his four, and only three have caught more games in a Phillies uniform.

ATLANTA - Ryan Howard traveled with the Phillies to Atlanta on Thursday and occupied his normal corner stall in the Turner Field visitors clubhouse before Friday night's series opener against the Braves. The 35-year-old first baseman did not play for the third straight game, but he could return to the field soon. Barring a setback, interim general manager Scott Proefrock said Friday he thinks Howard, who sustained a left knee contusion on Monday, will play before the end of the team's nine-game road trip.

ATLANTA - The first year of the Phillies' rebuild featured a revitalization of the farm system at various positions. That was certainly the case at catcher, the position at which Jorge Alfaro joined the organization in the Cole Hamels trade, and Andrew Knapp broke out with a torrid final 12 weeks at double-A Reading. Neither Alfaro nor Knapp, however, will be major-league ready come the beginning of the next baseball season. And so when the Phillies break camp next April for season No. 2 of their transition, it is likely their catching arrangement will mirror what it has for the latter months of this year.

THE WASHINGTON Nationals have become baseball's most popular punch line this summer. They went from adding a $210 million pitcher to their already-rich stable of arms, onto a roster built to play deep into October, to playing meaningless games in September following a late-season swoon. It's been a welcome sight for Phillies fans, because, as you may have heard, misery enjoys company. But the Nats' misery is likely to be short-lived while the Phillies continue their own rebuilding project.

IT IS A funny and pleasant memory for Chooch: that day he got Chase Utley in New York. Lately, for Carlos Ruiz, it's mostly about the memories. The fifth wheel on the home-grown Phillies nucleus that won five NL East titles in a row, Ruiz was the least likely star. Cole Hamels and Chase Utley were first-round picks; Jimmy Rollins, a second-rounder but an obvious star from the outset; and Ryan Howard, a fifth-rounder but the biggest piece of the puzzle in every sense of the phrase.

BOSTON - Alec Asher stood behind home plate as the final act of his Saturday afternoon unraveled in the fourth inning. The Phillies rookie righthander yielded a bases-loaded double to Boston's Xander Bogaerts. Then Asher watched Bogaerts charge home and slide under the tag of catcher Carlos Ruiz to highlight Boston's 9-2 drubbing of the Phils at Fenway Park. Bogaerts had moved to third when Aaron Altherr was slow to throw the ball back to the infield. He dashed for home when the relay throw from Cesar Hernandez bounced away from Ruiz.

NEW YORK - About 3 1/2 hours before first pitch last night, Erik Kratz snuck up behind Carlos Ruiz and wrapped his arms around the 5-10 catcher's chest. The 6-4 Kratz lifted Ruiz off the ground before putting him back on his feet. Ruiz turned around and smiled before the teammates, reunited again, shook hands and hugged. "You get to play with guys, you appreciate them as players," Kratz said. "A fan, they appreciate them as players. But, as teammates, you get to see what kind of men people are. You get to see what kind of person somebody is, day in and day out. The real person shines.

NEW YORK - Cameron Rupp got to spend the last day of August in the MLB Network studio in New York City. He was joined by teammate Aaron Altherr on MLB Central with host Matt Vasgersian and analysts Mark DeRosa and Cliff Floyd. Rupp and Altherr talked about the young, rebuilding Phillies and their recent personal successes. Back at Citi Field, Rupp found his name penciled in the lineup card for the 17th time in August, six more starts than longtime catcher Carlos Ruiz received.
