It's difficult to imagine that at the all-star break, the Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers were on even footing. Now one team is gearing for October, and the other for next season. The differing paths continued with the Dodgers' 5-0 win Saturday night over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, making interim manager Ryne Sandberg 0-2 and waiting for his team to score a run. The Phillies have been shut out 12 times this season. After games played on July 14, the Phillies entered the all-star break 48-48, and the Dodgers were 47-47.

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.

Who's hot PHILLIES: Davey Lopes The Phillies' first-base coach turned down an opportunity to join fellow Dodgers greats Steve Garvey, Ron Cey and Bill Russell for the ceremonial first pitch. Lopes' reasoning was he is with the Phillies now, and this was a Dodgers ceremony. DODGERS: James Loney He hit only .250 in the NLDS against St. Louis, but his home run in the second inning last night gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead. It was a big hit, since Loney hit only one home run - of his 13 - at Dodger Stadium all year.

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.

Day 1. The Phillies won Game 1, following a pattern that has proved to be successful for them. They won the opener of the National League Division Series against Milwaukee, the National League Championship Series against Los Angeles and the World Series last year. They won the first game of this year's Division Series against Colorado. In each case, that proved to be a springboard to win the series. Wake-up call. Why did Dodgers manager Joe Torre give starter Clayton Kershaw such a long leash in the fifth inning when the 21-year-old lefthander was clearly having a meltdown.

Flush with cash after the team's sale this year, the Los Angeles Dodgers are busy spending it on starting pitching. The team introduced lefthander Ryu Hyun-Jin of South Korea on Monday, making him the first player ever to go directly from the Korean league to the major leagues. And he was just the setup man. The Dodgers finalized a $147 million, six-year deal with free agent right-hander Zack Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young winner, later in the day. The deals for Greinke and Ryu give the Dodgers eight starting pitchers under contract for next season, including 2011 NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.

On Monday morning, the Taney Dragons boarded a bus to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League World Series. The Mid-Atlantic Regional champions from Center City have gained quite a few notable fans for the tournament, which begins Thursday. Taney will play its first game in the 16-team World Series against Southeast Regional champion South Nashville (Tenn.) on Friday at 3 p.m. at Howard J. Lamade Stadium. Among the new supporters are the Phillies. First baseman Ryan Howard said he hopes the Dragons seize the opportunity.

MINNEAPOLIS - Brandon Moss batted six times for the 2011 Phillies, a team that established a franchise standard with 102 wins. The Phillies offered Moss, then 28 and unspectacular, another minor-league contract. So, too, did Oakland. There was familiarity with the Phillies, who watched Moss bash 23 homers at triple-A Lehigh Valley. But the end, when John Bowker was afforded a better opportunity at a Phillies bench job than Moss, stung. "They had kind of shown I probably wasn't the guy they were looking for in the organization," Moss said.

With a night of squandered scoring chances, the Phillies kicked off their 11-game homestand. The Dodgers scored runs in the first two innings and starter Clayton Kershaw and four relievers made the lead stand up in Friday's 2-0 win over the Phillies at soggy Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies (20-25) have now dropped three in a row and have been shut out in four of their last eight games at home. They were 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position. Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon opened the game with a single off starter Roberto Hernandez and stole his 26th and 27th bases before scoring on Yasiel Puig's one-out RBI single.

ALTHOUGH PLAYERS are still occasionally suspended for PEDs, the steroid era is long over. Home runs have been down, speed has been up. Players such as Ben Revere are welcomed in today's game. Elite speedsters such as Cincinnati rookie Billy Hamilton and Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon are celebrated. Gordon worked his magic right off the bat last night, leading off the game against the Phillies with a single, then stealing both second and third and scoring on a Yasiel Puig single.

I KNOW WHAT some fans are thinking - the Phillies are in one of the top five media markets in the country, Citizens Bank Park has been filled to near-capacity since it opened; the team just signed a new 25-year, $2.5 billion television rights deal with Comcast. So if the Yankees can sign Japanese pitching sensation Masahiro Tanaka to a 7-year, $155 million contract after giving the Rakuten Golden Eagles a $20 million posting fee just for the rights to negotiate, why couldn't the Phillies have jumped in on that action?

The Phillies, losers of 19 of their last 23 games, solemnly boarded a charter plane in the wee hours Thursday morning. When asked about the weekend's challenge, their manager insisted: "We're definitely capable. " Across the country, the Dodgers staged a dramatic comeback and later won in extra innings for the 40th time in 48 games. "I can't explain what's happening here," Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. "But it's fun. " The Phillies are all that stand between Los Angeles and the best stretch of baseball since World War II. If the Dodgers win their next two games, they will equal the 1942 Cardinals' run of 42-8.

ATLANTA - The pitcher who shut down the best team in baseball Monday just so happened to lead the majors in losses. Cole Hamels is the latest proof of why measuring a pitcher by his win-loss record is arcane. Ask the hitters he silenced. "He might have been the best pitcher we've seen all year," Braves outfielder Justin Upton said. Hamels (5-13) was that good Monday in a complete-game victory, and his recovery from a shaky beginning to 2013 is notable. His ERA is 3.65, the lowest it has been all season.

FOR BRYCE Harper, two homers in his first two at-bats, and even some "M-V-P!" chants. For Stephen Strasburg, 19 consecutive outs during one stretch of seven scoreless innings. And for the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals, a 2-0 victory over the visiting Miami Marlins on Monday in Game 1 of a season lame-duck manager Davey Johnson declared months ago should be defined as "World Series or bust. " "You couldn't draw it up any better. No question. And to have the two youngsters go out, do what they did?

Stephen Strasburg is ready for his first big-league season without restrictions. Ready to go from season's start to finish. Ready to throw as many pitches as it takes and to stay on the mound as long as possible, including into the eighth and ninth inning, something he's never done in the majors. All-star ace Strasburg will start the season opener for the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals on Monday against a visiting Miami Marlins club that traded away most of its best players, cut its payroll by more than half, starts with seven players on the disabled list and has a rookie manager in Mike Redmond.
