BOSTON - The final image of Domonic Brown's season - if not his tenure with the Phillies - could turn out to be Wednesday night's gaffe that caused him to tumble into the Citi Field stands, turning a Mets single into an inside-the-park home run. The Phillies announced on Friday that Brown's crash caused him to suffer a concussion. He did not travel with the team for the weekend's three-game series at Fenway Park. He will have to pass concussion tests before rejoining the Phillies. It is the second concussion of Brown's career.

A YEAR AGO - on Sept. 2, 2014, the day after Labor Day - Pat Gillick stood in the hallway in between the dugout and the visitor's clubhouse at Turner Field and spoke about one of the most difficult resources in professional sports. He talked about the importance of patience, particularly when running or rooting for a team in transition. Gillick's quasi-state of the franchise address came about 24 hours after four of his pitchers combined for a no-hit win over the Braves. Three of those pitchers - Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman and Jonathan Papelbon - have since moved on in trades, while Ken Giles has moved into the closer's role on the suddenly youthful Phillies roster.

NEW YORK - Cameron Rupp got to spend the last day of August in the MLB Network studio in New York City. He was joined by teammate Aaron Altherr on MLB Central with host Matt Vasgersian and analysts Mark DeRosa and Cliff Floyd. Rupp and Altherr talked about the young, rebuilding Phillies and their recent personal successes. Back at Citi Field, Rupp found his name penciled in the lineup card for the 17th time in August, six more starts than longtime catcher Carlos Ruiz received.

The latest in the line of Phillies rookie starters to make his major-league debut took the mound Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. This was Alec Asher's turn, as it had been Jerad Eickhoff's nine days earlier, Aaron Nola's in July, and Adam Morgan's in June. Asher, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound righthander who began the season in double A, did not fare as well as his rookie rotation mates had, as the Phillies suffered a 9-4 loss to the San Diego Padres. Asher, whom the Phillies acquired from the Texas Rangers in last month's blockbuster Cole Hamels trade, allowed four runs - three on home runs - over 52/3 innings before the team's beleaguered bullpen surrendered five more.

STEPPING TO the plate to lead off the bottom of the third inning with his first career at-bat, Alec Asher heard a familiar voice emanating from the speakers at Citizens Bank Park. "Now, the pitcher, No. 49, Alec Asher," Asher's father, Bob, announced. Asher said he didn't fully recognize that it was his father's voice until he stepped into the box and took a quick glance at the big screen, where his father's smiling face was displayed for all 22,624 fans to see. Asher's father is the PA announcer for the Lakeland (Fla.)

BEFORE LAST night's game with the Mets, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin was asked what he anticipated from his newly acquired starting pitcher, Jerad Eickhoff, making only his second major league start after coming over in the Cole Hamels trade. "I'd like to see the same thing he did in Miami," said the manager. "Pound the strike zone, use all his pitches, throw all his pitches for strikes, keep the ball down. Today we're going to find out if he can repeat that. "Everybody has bad starts.

The game included no quick pitches or ejections and featured merely one home run, but the Phillies on Wednesday night still couldn't find a way to beat their division rivals. The bats struggled early and the bullpen struggled late in the Phillies' 9-4 loss, their eighth consecutive defeat to the first-place New York Mets. The Mets have claimed 11 of the first 12 games in the season series, and in this week's three meetings at Citizens Bank Park they have outscored the home team, 31-16.

A COUPLE of weeks ago, I was in New York and I went to see the show "Beautiful," a musical about the life of singer/songwriter Carole King. During the show, almost every one of her hits was performed, including one of my favorites, "So Far Away. " One of the lines in the song is "Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?" When I heard Wednesday night that Phillies second baseman Chase Utley was traded, it made me think of those lyrics. The trouble with being a sports fan these days is that very few players remain with one team for their entire career.

MIAMI - Jerad Eickhoff needed only three starts with triple-A Lehigh Valley before the Phillies were comfortable bringing him to the major leagues. He needed only 75 pitches on Friday to cement himself on the list of intriguing players to watch over the final six weeks of this Phillies season. The first of the five prospects the Phillies acquired for Cole Hamels to debut in the major leagues, Eickhoff tossed six shutout innings in a 7-1 win at Marlins Park. The 6-foot-4 righthander became the first Phillies starter to not allow a run in his big-league debut since Hamels in May 2006.

IT WAS the eve of Independence Day and the Phillies were in Atlanta, but the season was already over. Nobody told Chase Utley. The manager, Ryne Sandberg, had quit on the team. Cole Hamels was pitching like a man resigned to another summer in purgatory. Ut? He was in the hallway between the visitors' clubhouse and the tunnel to the dugout, sitting at a table filled with video monitors. Alone, he watched himself hit, clip after clip after clip, an hour before the Phillies took batting practice.
