ATLANTA - The day after eclipsing five runs for only the second time this season, the Phillies managed a season-high 14 hits Monday night. They combined them with another quality start on the mound and mostly effective bullpen work, a formula that, although seldom seen this season, typically translates to success. Their 5-2 win against the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field earned them back-to-back victories for just the third time this season. Tuesday offers another chance for the Phillies (10-17)

MIAMI - Giancarlo Stanton raised his arms in celebration before standing up and joining the rest of his teammates down the third-base line. Marcel Ozuna's third double of the night scored Stanton from first to end the series opener Friday night at Marlins Park. The Phillies' inability to hit outside of one inning came back to bite them in a 4-3 loss, their fourth consecutive defeat on this 10-game road trip. Ken Giles, pitching into a second inning for just his third time as a big-leaguer, walked Stanton and saw Ozuna smack his slider to the left-center-field gap to end the game.

ST. LOUIS - The fluid state of the Phillies' starting rotation should create a slew of openings this season. A lack of depth, injuries, and potential trades could lead to opportunities for several members of the triple-A rotation. The first two factors led the Phillies in their 21st game to use their seventh starting pitcher already. Severino Gonzalez's turn to pitch proved brief Tuesday night in an 11-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. Gonzalez was shelled in his major-league debut as the night amounted essentially to what the Phillies called up the pitcher to avoid: a bullpen game.

ST. LOUIS - The nerves weren't there for Severino Gonzalez last night. But one of baseball's best lineups was present at Busch Stadium, and it made his first big-league game a pretty forgettable one. Ten batters in, Gonzalez watched seven of the nine previos batters in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup reach base - and four come around to score, too - en route to an early exit in the Phillies' 11-5 defeat. "I wasn't nervous at all," Gonzalez said through interpreter and Phillies first-base coach Juan Samuel.

ST. LOUIS - Cole Hamels trotted out to the Busch Stadium mound shortly after 9 p.m. local time Monday. The bottom of the seventh inning signified just the second time this season the 31-year-old lefthander toed the rubber with a lead. A three-run top of the seventh in the Phillies' 4-1 win matched the team's combined run support for its ace over his first four starts. Hamels' win was his first in seven outings dating to last season. It came against the Cardinals on the same day the St. Louis ball club officially lost ace Adam Wainwright for the rest of the season.

Much attention has been paid to the early-season struggles of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. The Phillies' third-longest tenured player also has experienced a slow start to the season at the plate. Carlos Ruiz entered Saturday's game against the Braves with eight hits - all singles - and just one RBI in 42 at-bats. The veteran catcher leads the Phillies in walks (six) but has scored only once, the run that capped the team's 10-inning home win against the Nationals on April 11. Ruiz, 36, batted seventh for the second consecutive game Saturday.

As transitions go, this was somewhat of a significant moment for the Phillies. It was not as if we did not know that the second really-good-but-not-great era in franchise history was over. The previous two seasons, the first road trip this season, and all those empty blue seats at Citizens Bank Park provided ample evidence that it was, and has been, for a while. It is notable, however that for the first time since the Phillies won the 2008 World Series, they sent out a lineup, for Thursday's series finale against the Miami Marlins, without a player from that championship team.

The smallest crowd in Citizens Bank Park's 12-year history witnessed the Phillies drop their fourth series in five tries. A day after they "didn't do too much right," in the words of Ryne Sandberg, the second-year manager could have just as easily said the same about Thursday's matinee. The Phillies committed two more fielding errors in a 9-1 loss to the Miami Marlins, giving them a major-league-worst 17 through just 16 games. Only three of their eight hits came before the eighth inning.

ZIP THAT North Face up over your chin. Roll your hands halfway up your sleeves. Close your eyes and . . . Dream, baby, dream. The game-time temperature of yesterday's Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park was announced at 49 degrees. This was actually 2 degrees warmer than at the start of Game 5 of the 2008 World Series, but there were 45,940 people in the stands that night. Human body heat - and the anticipation of a world championship - can numb you up real good. So can runs and big hits and key pitches.

GIANCARLO STANTON briefly lifted his front left foot, turned on a 3-2 offering from Justin De Fratus, and sent a ball into the open real estate beyond the leftfield fence at Citizens Bank Park in record time. Well, not officially. But the line-drive home run, Stanton's sixth in his last 15 games at the South Philly homer haven, traveled faster than fans to the parking lot yesterday afternoon, when the Phillies put forth their second sloppy game in less than 24 hours. Stanton's two-run home run was the finishing touch in a deflating, 9-1 defeat for the Phillies in front of a ballpark record-low crowd of 17,097.
