IT IS A funny and pleasant memory for Chooch: that day he got Chase Utley in New York. Lately, for Carlos Ruiz, it's mostly about the memories. The fifth wheel on the home-grown Phillies nucleus that won five NL East titles in a row, Ruiz was the least likely star. Cole Hamels and Chase Utley were first-round picks; Jimmy Rollins, a second-rounder but an obvious star from the outset; and Ryan Howard, a fifth-rounder but the biggest piece of the puzzle in every sense of the phrase.

READING - J.P. Crawford wore a snorkel. Ben Lively squeezed into a wet suit. Andrew Knapp strapped on a pair of goggles. Double-A Reading was ready to celebrate. The players were also set to discover what winning feels like. The Fightin Phils - a team that features seven of the Phillies' top 12 active prospects - celebrated with champagne twice this past week as they secured a berth in the Eastern League postseason on Monday and a division title on Thursday. Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said it is important for the team's top prospects to experience winning.

BOSTON - Alec Asher stood behind home plate as the final act of his Saturday afternoon unraveled in the fourth inning. The Phillies rookie righthander yielded a bases-loaded double to Boston's Xander Bogaerts. Then Asher watched Bogaerts charge home and slide under the tag of catcher Carlos Ruiz to highlight Boston's 9-2 drubbing of the Phils at Fenway Park. Bogaerts had moved to third when Aaron Altherr was slow to throw the ball back to the infield. He dashed for home when the relay throw from Cesar Hernandez bounced away from Ruiz.

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.

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.)

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.

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.
