SAN FRANCISCO - The most defeat-filled first half in Phillies history ended Sunday with a brisk 2-hour, 23-minute afternoon game at AT&T Park. After a 4-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants, the players on baseball's worst team packed their bags and headed opposite ways for a much-needed all-star break. "One good thing is, we've got the four-game break," interim manager Pete Mackanin said. "So we can go home and relax and try to get our heads together, just take the pressure off for a while and see what happens.

LOS ANGELES - The Phillies announced the signing of 16-year-old Dominican slugger Jhailyn Ortiz on Thursday night. Ortiz, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound first baseman/leftfielder, was set to receive a $4.2 million signing bonus, according to several reports. The Phillies, who acquired the No. 1 international signing slot from the Arizona Diamondbacks over the weekend, also announced the signings of Venezuelan catcher Rafael Marchan, Dominican infielder Kuedy Bocio, and Dominican lefthander Manuel Silva.

LOS ANGELES - Less than three weeks ago, the Phillies were routinely losing games because their starting pitching was inconsistent and their offense could barely scratch across more than a couple of runs each night. From Opening Day until June 20, the Phillies offense ranked last in the major leagues in runs (211), runs per game (3.01) and on-base percentage (.287). The starting pitching remains a nightly adventure, but the offense has been resurrected by an influx of young bats.

LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw is one of five National League players in the running to win the final vote for Tuesday's All-Star Game in Cincinnati. On Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers ace and reigning National League MVP used the Phillies to boost his campaign. Kershaw, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, dominated baseball's worst team with his first complete game shutout of the season. The Phillies' 5-0 loss at Dodger Stadium marked their ninth shutout defeat through 87 games.

ANDY MacPHAIL said something interesting a couple of days after his introductory news conference. Interesting, not because of its merits, but because of its eerie similarity to the company line we've heard from the current front office over the last few years. "The criticism of this franchise I think has been that maybe they tried to keep the party going too long," the Phillies president-in-waiting said in an interview with the MLB Network. MacPhail opined that "this game is designed to punish the successful" by way of reverse-order-of-finish drafting and salaries that increase with performance and service time.

The finale of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park between baseball's two worst teams needed extra innings to decide. Three hours and 57 minutes after it began, the battle of ineptitude ended with the Phillies again coming out on the losing end. An 8-7 loss in 11 innings to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Phillies' fourth consecutive defeat and 28th in 36 games, cemented the team's worst record at the season's midway point since 1997. A mere 27 wins through 81 games puts the Phillies on pace for a 54-108 season, and their roster figures to get only worse after the July 31 trade deadline.

THE $6.5 MILLION the Phillies invested in veteran righthanders Aaron Harang and Chad Billingsley hasn't exactly turned out to be money well spent. On Wednesday night, interim manager Pete Mackanin opined that when a team collects 10 hits and five runs, it will be in position to win a lot of games. The Phillies didn't win, thanks to Harang's latest horror show. Last night, Billingsley was nearly as awful. The Brewers put up a three-spot in the first inning against Billingsley, making his first start in more than six weeks.

AT THE MIDWAY point, these Phillies are historically bad, 100-loss bad. So much would have had to have gone right for them to approach the respectability of even 80 wins that a .500 season almost defied possibility. Still, 100 losses are a lot different from even 90, or 95. This isn't a baseball team, it's a reality TV show. One with a really bad script. It starts with the producers. Their front office is leaderless; the manager defected; and the clubhouse is poised for deadline destruction by July 31. This is beyond bizarre.

Ken Giles took the Citizens Bank Park mound late Tuesday with 12 scoreless June frames to his name. The Phillies' 24-year-old setup man retired the first two Milwaukee Brewers he faced. Then the inning unraveled. Giles' 38th pitch of a laborious eighth inning put Adam Lind on first base and walked in the Brewers' go-ahead run. The Phillies spoiled a great start by ace Cole Hamels and lost, 4-3, in a battle of baseball's two worst teams. "I think he knows what he did. He made a couple of bad pitches," interim manager Pete Mackanin said.

The Phillies weren't able to take advantage of Washington righthander Max Scherzer on an "off night. " At least judging by his recent performances, Scherzer was downright hittable Friday night. Beatable is another story. Scherzer pitched eight innings and allowed two runs on five hits in a 5-2 win over the Phillies to kick off the Pete Mackanin interim managerial era at Citizens Bank Park. Mackanin replaced Ryne Sandberg, who surprisingly resigned on Friday. Scherzer's two previous outings were an awful lot to live up to, and he entered Friday's game bringing the name of Johnny Vander Meer back into the public consciousness.
