ATLANTA - Chad Billingsley, who turns 31 in July, was as excited as a 20-year-old rookie on the eve of his first start of the season. Billingsley was 25 months and two elbow surgeries removed from his most recent major league game. About an hour before he took the mound for the Phillies last night at Turner Field, Billingsley's heart began pounding pretty fast. He rode the adrenaline in getting the first big-league batter he faced since 2013 to ground out, and then used it again when he dialed up 93 mph on his seventh pitch of the night.

ATLANTA - For three months last summer, Chad Billingsley wasn't much help in the bringing-in-the-groceries-from-the-car department. If he and his wife decided to go on vacation for a weekend, he was going to be hitting up the bellhop for help with the luggage. Handling the TV remote was about his limit. Billingsley underwent surgery on his right flexor tendon (elbow) just over 10 months ago. Two years ago, he had Tommy John surgery. Tonight, he'll take the mound at Turner Field and pitch in his first major league game in more than two years.

THE NUMBERS may have looked similar, but to Chad Billingsley, yesterday's 7-4 loss to the Mets felt like progress. Five days earlier, the 30-year-old righthander made his first start in nearly 2 calendar years, a layoff necessitated by a pair of elbow surgeries that ended his career with the Dodgers. In his first game back, he allowed six runs (five earned) in five innings against the Braves, including home runs by Freddie Freeman and Kelly Johnson. Yesterday, the big blast came from Curtis Granderson, who crushed a fastball off a billboard between the first and second seating decks in right-centerfield for a two-run home run that gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning.

THE $6.5 MILLION the Phillies invested in veteran righthanders Aaron Harang and Chad Billingsley hasn't exactly turned out to be money well spent. On Wednesday night, interim manager Pete Mackanin opined that when a team collects 10 hits and five runs, it will be in position to win a lot of games. The Phillies didn't win, thanks to Harang's latest horror show. Last night, Billingsley was nearly as awful. The Brewers put up a three-spot in the first inning against Billingsley, making his first start in more than six weeks.

When the Dodgers acquired Ted Lilly from the Cubs on Saturday, they deepened their staff but didn't upgrade the top of their rotation. The lefthander, 34, has some playoff experience, the kind he'd prefer to forget. The addition of Lilly does little to ease the burden on Clayton Kershaw, above, as the No. 1. Kershaw is talented and appears to have a great future, but the lefthander is only 22. He does have postseason experience. Hiroki Kuroda has yet to develop the consistency the Dodgers need from him, but Chad Billingsley has been getting more effective as the season wears on.

The three-game series starts Tuesday at AT&T Park. The Giants won three out of four in San Diego to gain a share of first place in the NL West for the first time since May 6. The Giants have won nine of their last 12 and are going against a withering Dodgers team that has lost 11 of its last 15 while the Padres go against the white-hot Rockies in Colorado. The Dodgers will throw three quality starters - Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly - against their division rivals, and even when they're going bad, they can be motivated playing the Giants.

Aaron Nola boarded a bus on Friday morning with the rest of his triple-A Lehigh Valley teammates. He then was told he was needed at the front desk of the team's hotel in Rochester, N.Y. "Why would they want to see me?" Nola said he thought. Waiting there was IronPigs manager Dave Brundage, who told Nola that he was joining the Phillies. Nola arrived at Citizens Bank Park on Monday afternoon. He found his locker sandwiched between Chad Billingsley's and Cole Hamels'. The righthander will make his major-league debut against Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

WITH ONE OUT in the seventh inning, David Buchanan walked off the mound and back to the home dugout at Citizens Bank Park. A decent contingent of the 20,148 rose to their feet and voiced their approval for the second-year righthander's performance. Phillies fans stood and cheered for a pitcher. A first in 2015? It was only the eighth time in the last 58 games that a Phillies starter managed to pitch beyond the sixth inning. Buchanan recovered from an uneasy start to last night's game against Tampa Bay, while Cesar Hernandez, Maikel Franco and Jeff Francoeur fueled the Phillies' offense in a 5-3 victory.

Chad Billingsley cruised through the first five innings in a 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies starter threw just 70 pitches as he scattered four hits without allowing a run. It was his finest performance of the season. Four more outs and it would have been his longest outing since 2012. But the mound was empty to start the sixth inning. The bullpen door opened and Jake Diekman jogged to the infield. Billingsley was done. The righthander's stellar night ended with a bizarre finish.

SAN FRANCISCO - Jeff Francoeur had a flight to catch to get to Atlanta, where he'll celebrate his daughter's second birthday. Darin Ruf was going back to Philadelphia on the team charter flight. Freddy Galvis was joining Carlos Ruiz on a trip to Panama, Justin De Fratus was heading down the coast to his offseason home in Southern California, and Chase Utley was sticking around in San Francisco, where he's made a home in recent years. It's fair to say everyone in the visiting clubhouse, no matter where they were headed yesterday afternoon, was eager for a break.

SAN FRANCISCO - The most defeat-filled first half in Phillies history ended Sunday with a brisk 2-hour, 23-minute afternoon game at AT&T Park. After a 4-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants, the players on baseball's worst team packed their bags and headed opposite ways for a much-needed all-star break. "One good thing is, we've got the four-game break," interim manager Pete Mackanin said. "So we can go home and relax and try to get our heads together, just take the pressure off for a while and see what happens.

LOS ANGELES - For the first 11 years of his professional baseball career, Chad Billingsley was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. The righthander was the Dodgers' first-round draft pick in 2003. He represented them in the All-Star Game in 2009. He has won more games at Dodger Stadium than any active pitcher not named Clayton Kershaw. On the heels of consecutive seasons lost to elbow surgeries, Billingsley returned to his former home mound Tuesday night as a member of the Phillies.

Aaron Harang on Thursday became the latest Phillies starter to land on the disabled list, further increasing the chances the struggling righthander will remain with the team beyond the July 31 trade deadline. A day after allowing a season-worst eight runs and 14 hits in a 9-5 loss, the 37-year-old Harang received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The move was made in conjunction with Chad Billingsley's being activated from the disabled list. Billingsley started Thursday against the Brewers.

Once again Phillies righthander Chad Billingsley is returning to the big leagues. Billingsley will start Thursday against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers. He missed most of the previous two seasons after Tommy John surgery and additional elbow surgery. Billingsley began this season with triple-A Lehigh Valley. After he made three starts with the Phillies and posted a 6.75 ERA, he returned to the DL May 17 with a right shoulder strain. "I've just got to get back out there again, getting my rhythm, getting a routine and constantly getting back out there," Billingsley said.

PITTSBURGH - Lehigh Valley manager Dave Brundage called Domonic Brown into his office Saturday afternoon. He asked the outfielder how he was feeling. Brundage told Brown he was out of that night's IronPigs lineup. The manager wanted Brown to get better mentally and physically. The triple-A manager left his office. Brown was left a bit confused. The team's strength and conditioning coach then told Brown that the manager wanted to see him again. "Then I knew something was up," Brown said.
