Cole Hamels walked off the mound, raised his glove to his mouth and barked into the mitt. The pitcher headed to the dugout irritated after allowing a run in the fourth inning of Friday's 3-1 win over the New York Mets. It was the lone blemish on an otherwise striking night at Citizens Bank Park. Hamels struck out eight batters - the highest at home since last July - and allowed four hits. He retired 10 of his final 11 batters and threw more than 100 pitches for the sixth time in seven starts.

Call it a dark night for the Dark Knight of Gotham. For the second time this season, New York Mets righthander Matt Harvey was less than imposing when facing the Phillies. This time, it resulted in his first loss of the season as Cole Hamels allowed one run in seven innings during the Phillies' 3-1 win over the Mets on Friday at Citizens Bank Park. Harvey allowed three earned runs on six hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out four, and allowed a Ryan Howard solo home run. Harvey's line was almost identical to the one he had in a 6-5 win over the visiting Phillies on April 14. In that game, he allowed three earned runs on five hits in six innings, with eight strikeouts and no walks.

ATLANTA - One is the veteran ace of a staff on a floundering team who is likely to find himself pitching in a new home ballpark three months from now. The other is arguably baseball's most dynamic young pitcher and headlines an up-and-coming club off to a hot start. The Phillies' Cole Hamels and New York Mets ace Matt Harvey face off Friday in perhaps the best pitching matchup Citizens Bank Park will host this season. The game displays the star attractions of two large-market National League East franchises headed in opposite directions.

NEW YORK - Matt Harvey was dressed and on his way out of the Mets clubhouse at Citi Field late Wednesday night when he stopped to consider the consequences of the choice that changed his life and career. He will pitch against Cole Hamels and the Phillies on Friday, arriving as Major League Baseball's best starter and the biggest star in its biggest market: a 5-0 record, a 2.41 earned run average, 34 strikeouts in 332/3 innings, an average of 40,450 people in attendance for each of his last four outings.

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.

MIAMI - Five days after Cole Hamels' arguably best start of the season came his worst in a calendar year. It didn't take long in the Phillies' 7-0 loss Saturday to feel the game was out of reach for the major leagues' worst offense. The red-hot Miami Marlins tagged Hamels for six runs and 10 hits, chasing the Phillies ace after six innings. Dan Haren and a pair of relievers shut down the Phillies (8-17), losers of five consecutive games and 11 of their 13 road games this season. The shutout was the Phillies' third through 25 games.

ST. LOUIS - With pitching injuries becoming contagious to potential contending teams, and the Boston Red Sox rotation sporting the worst ERA in either league, the Cole Hamels' trade buzz returned to the baseball world this week. Given the need for pitching throughout major league baseball, and the scarcity of top-level pitching that's likely to be available, it would be more than mildly surprising if Cole Hamels is still in a Phillies uniform three months from today. But since there are few aces to be had this summer, the teams left standing when Hamels finds a seat in the trade deadline's musical chairs will have to look elsewhere.

ST. LOUIS - Ryne Sandberg telegraphed the roster move before it happened, so it wasn't as shocking as it may have been otherwise when the Phillies announced yesterday afternoon that Domonic Brown had been reinstated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple A Lehigh Valley. Brown is less than two years removed from being a National League All-Star. He is making $2.5 million this season. But as Sandberg suggested on Monday, the Phillies would like to see Brown get his bat going in the minor leagues before deeming it ready for the team's major league lineup.

THE LEGACY of Ruben Amaro Jr. will center not on the three playoff trips or on the Phillies' seventh World Series appearance. Instead, Amaro will be remembered for the crippling contracts given to veterans who failed to produce because of injury, ineptness or age. Some of those contracts went to future Hall of Famers in their twilights - Roy Halladay, Chase Utley, maybe Jimmy Rollins. Others went to unquestioned stars: Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee, streaky Cole Hamels, who has yet to earn a Cy Young Award or even win 20 games.
