NEW YORK - The only good news to come out of the 12-1 beatdown by the Mets on Saturday night is that the Phillies are one day closer to finishing August. The month has been unforgiving to the starting rotation as the unit seems to be fading as the season winds down. Jeremy Hellickson allowed five runs in four innings to bring the rotation's ERA to 7.26 in 22 August games. It is the team's worst month since June 2006, when the starting pitchers registered a 7.36 ERA, and second worst since a 7.20 ERA in July 1961.

NEW YORK - Ryan Howard said Carlos Ruiz was like the quarterback of the team's pitching staff. Cameron Rupp said Ruiz - who was traded to the Dodgers on Thursday - was the player he wanted to be like ever since Rupp joined the Phillies. Freddy Galvis said Ruiz was a good friend. Pete Mackanin said Ruiz was a pleasure to coach. There was a lot of love for Ruiz on Friday afternoon as the Phillies prepared to play the Mets in the first game in more than a decade without Ruiz on their roster.

The game moved fast last Wednesday. Jerad Eickhoff had faced the minimum in five innings, and now the first three White Sox hitters had reached in the sixth inning, with two runs across. There were no outs. The tying run stood at the plate. Eickhoff badly missed with his first pitch. That is when Freddy Galvis darted from shortstop to the mound and urged the 26-year-old righthander to relax at the most crucial moment of his 34th career start. The message stuck. "I tried to slow it down," Eickhoff said.

CHICAGO - When the Phillies removed Jerad Eickhoff from an eventual 5-3 win Wednesday with six solid innings that required 71 pitches, manager Pete Mackanin said it was because he wanted his pitcher to leave Illinois with positive vibes. Eickhoff was surprised. These days, the Phillies are ultra-conscious about their starters. They cannot afford more issues in a young rotation that will struggle to reach the season's conclusion. Mackanin and pitching coach Bob McClure informed Eickhoff of their decision.

'FIVE RIGHT at me. Five to the hole. Five in the shift. Then five backhand, going forward. Then five more straight. " Freddy Galvis recites the routine that has made him a Gold Glove contender. It's more than 100 degrees on the field at Citizens Bank Park, the end of a long August heat wave. The dirt is baked and the Phillies aren't winning and just running up the steps of the dugout for the 122nd game of the 2016 season seems exhausting and, to a degree, pointless; the starting rotation is in shambles, the lone All-Star, Odubel Herrera, hasn't hit well since a week before the break, and any talk of a run at the wild-card playoff slots seems sillier with each passing day. Still, Galvis has a spring in his step.

Six-year-old Riley Neyer, her mother, and grandfather made the drive Sunday morning from the Jersey Shore to catch a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park. It was to be just like when Riley's grandfather, Bob Gillece, would take his daughter, Erin Neyer, to games when she was a child. But Sunday ended with a scare when Erin Neyer was struck in the mouth by a foul ball after she pushed Riley out of harm's way. It was the second straight Phillies game in which a foul ball struck a fan, and it came hours after shortstop Freddy Galvis criticized the team for not providing protective nets behind the dugouts that would prevent such incidents.

Friday's 4-3 Phillies loss to St. Louis at Citizens Bank Park proved to be a night of opportunity. Some of it was wasted, while some of it was seized. It was an opportunity for Adam Morgan to prove his worth on the day that the Phillies shut down their second young starter in three days. The lefthander used a crafty change-up to turn in his best start since May. It also was an opportunity for the Phillies to grab a series-opening win against a team hunting for a playoff berth. They instead collapsed in the ninth and fell in the 11th.

Pete Mackanin pulled Freddy Galvis and Cesar Hernandez into his office in April and reminded the infielders what this season meant. J.P. Crawford, the team's top-ranked prospect in the last five years, is coming. The 21-year-old shortstop's eventual arrival likely means that Galvis and Hernandez - childhood friends from Venezuela - will compete for one job. "I told them not to worry about him. Worry about what you're doing," Mackanin said. "If you're doing well, they're going to have to make a tough decision.

LOS ANGELES - Jeremy Hellickson threw a pitch in the fifth inning Wednesday afternoon, grabbed his back, and this is how a mediocre trip to the West Coast almost became destructive. The Phillies won as many games as they lost in California, but they will return home with some fears about their starting rotation. They beat the Dodgers, 6-2, because Freddy Galvis bashed his first homer against a lefthander in almost two years. That generated a happy flight home. It could have been worse; Hellickson left the game after the fifth with tightness in his back, but he expects to make his next scheduled start.

The home run that sealed the Phillies' 3-2 loss to San Francisco on Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park seemed almost inevitable. The Phillies bullpen - one of the least dependable units in all of baseball - had logged 14 straight scoreless innings. Something had to give, and it did when Denard Span led off the 10th inning by lining a homer to right field off Severino Gonzalez. Phillies manager Pete Mackanin was forced to rely on a thinned bullpen after starter Vince Velasquez lasted just five innings.
