MIAMI - Roy Oswalt will make his debut at Citizens Bank Park against the Dodgers on Tuesday or Wednesday, depending on how the Phillies handle a scheduled off day on Monday. Oswalt, who is scheduled to start tonight against Marlins righthander Chris Volstad, will be on his fifth day on Tuesday. Manager Charlie Manuel said earlier this week that he anticipated his three aces - Oswalt, Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels - pitching every fifth day down the stretch. But the Phillies also could start Kendrick on Tuesday, which would be his usual turn in the rotation.

Is the Freak back? San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum may be coming out of his funk. He entered Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins with the worst NL ERA (7.59) in June, but threw 72 of his 109 pitches for strikes, gave up three hits, walked two, and didn't allow a runner past second while striking out 12 to get his first win since May 27. The hit man The New York Mets' Justin Turner , who had a walk-off hit-by-pitch in a 13-inning win over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night, was plunked in nearly the same spot on the left thigh by Graham Godfrey in the first inning of Thursday's game.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Ryan Howard touched home plate in the third inning, the first Phillie to do so in 30 innings and five days. As he walked back to the dugout, he rotated his fists in a circular motion, as if to say, "Keep it going. " Of course, Raul Ibanez, who had tripled Howard home, was stranded on third. But the Phillies were awakened from an offensive slumber that felt like an eternity. They snapped a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Marlins at Sun Life Stadium on Friday.

GIANCARLO STANTON appears to have no problem with the dimensions of Dodger Stadium, which isn't exactly a home-run haven. The power-hitting rightfielder made Chavez Ravine his personal launching pad this weekend, homering for the third straight game Sunday as the Miami Marlins beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-2. Stanton drove a first-pitch fastball from Aaron Harang (9-8) over the centerfield wall in the fourth inning for his 29th homer, tying it at 1. It was his eighth homer during the Marlins' 5-6 road trip.

(First in a series) The Marlins followed the Phillies' lead, just a year late. In anticipation of greater revenue from their new ballpark opening in 2004, the Phillies, in 2003, pre-invested in free agents Jim Thome and David Bell, traded for pricey starter Kevin Millwood and extended Pat Burrell's contract, a total commitment of $172 million. In anticipation of greater revenue from their ballpark opening in April, the now-Miami Marlins invested a total of $203 million in shortstop Jose Reyes, lefthander Mark Buerhle, closer Heath Bell and manager Ozzie Guillen, most of it in back-loaded deals.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Fewer than 5,000 fans dotted the stands at muggy Sun Life Stadium when Anibal Sanchez threw the first pitch at 7:10 p.m., and there was every sense it would be one of those nights Wednesday. The Phillies had a charter flight waiting in Fort Lauderdale to take them home, but first they had to endure this game, a 7-6 loss to the hapless Marlins. The Phillies blew a 4-0 lead, a 5-3 lead, a 6-3 lead and then finally lost it in the 10th inning when Mike Stanton mashed a Danys Baez curveball that flew over the leftfield fence in mere seconds.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Charlie Manuel put his red Phillies hat on, leaned back in his chair at Sun Life Stadium, and finally could crack jokes about his offense Wednesday. "We jumped our batting average, didn't we?" he said. Outside the manager's office, Jimmy Rollins' iPod blared music louder than normal after a Phillies win. This particular night yielded a season-high 14 Phillies runs on a season-high 18 hits, and a 14-2 thrashing of the reeling Florida Marlins was reason to down a few frosty beverages in the visiting clubhouse.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - The decision facing the Marlins' octogenarian manager in the third inning Tuesday was complicated because even Jack McKeon knows Chris Volstad pitching against the Phillies usually leads to explosive outcomes. McKeon last managed a team in 2005, three years before Volstad made his major-league debut and subsequently became a Philadelphia batting practice target. Less than an hour into the Phillies' 14-2 win at Sun Life Stadium, this was one of those nights McKeon probably wished he were still watching the Marlins from Elon, N.C., where the ability to turn off the TV was still an option.

MIAMI - Jair Jurrjens is all the Atlanta Braves needed to come up with a rare sweep of the Marlins in Florida. Jurrjens threw seven solid innings and drove in a run as the Braves handed the Marlins their eighth straight loss with a 3-2 win Thursday night. Alex Gonzalez also drove in a run with a double as the Braves completed a three-game sweep at Sun Life Stadium for the first time since May 2-4, 1995. "They always pitch really good against us, and this is a tough lineup," Jurrjens said.
