DENVER - Cole Hamels' last three starts have lowered his season ERA by almost a full run. The 31-year-old lefthander's latest performance, his longest outing of the season, fueled the Phillies to their longest winning streak since September 2012. The Phillies earned their sixth consecutive win on Monday night in a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Their ace allowed just one run and six hits over 71/3 innings. Hamels has won each of his last 11 starts in which he has been afforded at least three runs of support while he is in the game.

Freddy Galvis hopped out of the dugout and stood on the warning-track dirt in the fifth inning of a 7-5 win over Arizona on Saturday night. Galvis waved his arms above his head, seeking the attention of Carlos Ruiz, who stood on second after an RBI double. Ruiz looked his way. Galvis put his hands to his head and wagged his fingers. Ruiz did the same. The Phillies scored three times in the fifth on the way to tying their highest run total of the season. The victory gave the team its first four-game winning streak since Aug. 24-27 of last season.

Jordy Mercer's fly ball landed in Jeff Francoeur's glove in foul territory and the journeyman rightfielder fired toward home. The throw was perfect, nailing Steve Lombardozzi at the plate and cementing Jonathan Papelbon as the Phillies' all-time saves leader. Papelbon saved the 113th game of his four-year tenure with the Phillies on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park in a 3-2 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In dramatic fashion, he surpassed Jose Mesa on the franchise's all-time list.

THE CELLPHONE screen was blowing up with messages. The plastic cup beside it was chilled with ice. The wrestling championship belt was in its usual place, hanging along the side. But standing on its own in the locker stall of Jonathan Robert Papelbon was a reward for not only a successful night's work, but for a career achievement that set the relief pitcher aside from every other player in the 133 years of Philadelphia Phillies baseball. It was a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue.

THE LOOK on his face and the tone in his voice said that this was one of Ryne Sandberg's most difficult moments yet as a manager. You can imagine, then, how it felt for Cody Asche. The Phillies blindsided the young third baseman with the postgame news that he was no longer a third baseman, and that he was headed to Triple A to learn the ropes in leftfield, presumably to make way for top prospect Maikel Franco. While Asche has struggled defensively and been inconsistent offensively, he is regarded as one of the hardest workers on the team, a fundamental part of a clubhouse that, while short on talent, is nevertheless left stunned when a fixture is jettisoned.

Aaron Harang turned and watched as the ball rocketed overhead. The Phillies pitcher saw it clear the left-field wall in the seventh inning of a 3-2 loss to the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park on Saturday night. Harang bent his knees and hollered. It was quite the way to spoil a 37th birthday. Harang had put together a strong performance before yielding the two-run homer to Juan Lagares, who had been hitless in his previous 16 at-bats. Manager Ryne Sandberg said it was a high fastball that Harang would like to have back.

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.
