NEW YORK - Cole Hamels threw his arms up in the air as the ball shot through the right side of the infield, in the very spot a second baseman typically positions himself. The Phillies had employed a defensive shift for the righthanded-hitting John Ryan Murphy, and it cost them an out. Perhaps the frustration Hamels displayed was pent up after five more innings of zero run support against the New York Yankees. After scoring 31 runs over their previous three games, the Phillies reverted to their old form Wednesday with their ace on the mound in a 10-2 loss at Yankee Stadium.

NEW YORK - It really had all the makings of the perfect showcase start for Cole Hamels and, instead, it spiraled into one of the many games that actually left the lefthander with his arms raised in the air in disbelief. After three games when everything broke right for the Phillies, Hamels took the mound and the worst team in baseball reared its ugly head behind him. It culminated in a routine ground ball to second base that began the fifth inning. Second baseman Cesar Hernandez was positioned far closer to second base than Hamels would have liked, and it resulted in a single.

LESS THAN 48 hours before his scheduled start came up last week, Cole Hamels was scratched. He had a minor hamstring injury, an ailment that was insignificant enough that he was able to throw his normal, in-between starts bullpen session without issue on Sunday, two days after that scheduled start. But Hamels had some fun with his teammates during the period of uncertainty, clearing out his locker. Perhaps they'd think he was traded, Hamels thought, trying a prank to lighten the mood on a team in the middle of a weeklong losing streak.

Adam Morgan repeated the routine six times, once before each inning of his first major-league start Sunday. The 25-year-old circled the mound as the Phillies threw his last warm-up pitch around the horn. When Morgan caught the ball from Maikel Franco, he tucked his glove under his right armpit and leaned over the back of the mound. Then he smacked the rosin bag three times against his left hand. The pattern worked fine as he tossed 52/3 innings and gave up one run in the Phillies' 9-2 win over the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park.

THE BOOS rained down from a good portion of the 30,000 fans in attendance when manager Ryne Sandberg emerged from the Phillies' dugout with his lineup card in hand and two outs in the sixth inning. The Phillies were ahead by four runs, for the first time since May 23, no less, but the faithful let the much-maligned manager hear it. They wanted 25-year-old lefthander Adam Morgan to have a chance to get out of a jam in his first major league appearance, but Sandberg had other ideas.

A MEDIUM-SIZED rodent - perhaps about the size of the pitching rubber - deftly scaled the screen behind home plate in the second inning of last night's game between the Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals. It distracted everyone on the field and in the stands, which wasn't the worst thing in the world. The people, after all, came to be entertained. The Citizens Bank Park Squirrel, no relation to the 2011 NLDS Busch Stadium Squirrel, according to a baseball source, didn't stop with his high-wire act. With a hop, skip and a jump, our hero was suddenly dancing on the dugout.

The latest player to hit the Phillies' starting rotation didn't do so with the utmost confidence. Righthander Phillippe Aumont has always had the strongest of arms, but he conceded his biggest downfall has come between the ears. As for between the white lines, the St. Louis Cardinals pounded Aumont for six runs in four innings during Friday's 12-4 romp over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. "It has to be between the ears; I have done it plenty of times, physically," Aumont said.

ON THE DAY he was supposed to take the mound against baseball's best team, only to have his start scratched with a minor right hamstring injury, Cole Hamels said he felt "really good. " He will not go on the disabled list. His eyes nearly rolled out of his head when he was asked - twice - about that possibility yesterday afternoon. Hamels plans to throw his regular, in-between starts bullpen session tomorrow with an eye on rejoining the Phillies' rotation Wednesday afternoon at Yankees Stadium.
