NEW YORK - The Phillies couldn't have expected much more from Jerad Eickhoff's first three major-league starts. The 25-year-old righthander logged 19 innings and allowed only six earned runs. But unfortunately for the rookie starter, his last two outings have come opposite a crafty veteran pitcher the Phillies simply can't hit: Bartolo Colon. They failed to muster a semblance of offense against Colon for the second time in six nights on Monday, this time in a 3-1 loss at Citi Field.

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.

AFTER TAKING a called strike, Freddy Galvis got fooled by a changeup from Mets lefthander Jon Niese and barely got his bat around in time. The second-inning line drive left Galvis' bat and headed just to the left of the Phillies dugout. The crowd gasped. Galvis immediately put his hands over his helmet and turned away. He didn't step back in the batter's box for 20 seconds or so. Commissioner Rob Manfred, at last night's game at Citizens Bank Park, wasn't concerned about pace of play at the moment.

THE STRUGGLES of the Phillies' bullpen have been well-documented. The team's relief pitchers, ranked third in runs allowed in the major leagues, were given yet another chance to escort the Phils to victory last night against the New York Mets, as righthanded starter Jerome Williams bowed out in the sixth inning with a one-run lead. Williams left righthanded reliever Jeanmar Gomez in quite the precarious situation, with one out and runners on first and third. Initially, Gomez looked up for the challenge, retiring his first batter, Wilmer Flores, but then walked Michael Conforto to load the bases . A single pitch away from ending the inning, Gomez walked Travis d'Arnaud on a 3-2 count to allow the tying run. Michael Cuddyer, who was pinch-hitting for Mets starter Noah Syndergaard (8-6)

MIAMI - Luis Garcia walked off the mound after a recent outing, having needed only eight pitches to dispatch the opposition in order. Once back in the dugout, the Phillies relief pitcher heard from his manager. "Te vamos a pagar medio dia de trabajo, porque no hiciste nada hoy. " Half a day's pay because you didn't do anything today. "Little stuff like that," Pete Mackanin said, "and they get a kick out of it. " Witty remarks such as that one have been more common in the Phillies dugout in the two months since Mackanin was tabbed as the interim caretaker of baseball's worst team.

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.

YESTERDAY was a scheduled off day for Chase Utley, according to interim manager Pete Mackanin. He may not have been in the lineup, but it just so happened that all of the attention was on the 36-year-old second baseman, as trade rumors echoed throughout the clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park. Not long after last night's 7-4 win over the Blue Jays, it was official: The Phillies traded Utley and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for outfielder Darnell Sweeney and righthander John Richy.

SAN DIEGO - With Jerome Williams fashioning his best start of the season and an opportunity to break the game open, manager Pete Mackanin decided to stick with the team's longtime cleanup hitter, Ryan Howard, with two on, two out and his team up two runs in the seventh inning of yesterday's game against the Padres at Petco Park. Maikel Franco had just been walked intentionally and Howard was matched up against San Diego lefty specialist Marc Rzepczynski. Howard, who is hitting .192 with 142 strikeouts in 328 at-bats against lefthanders since the beginning of 2013, struck out to end the rally.

SAN DIEGO - When Pete Mackanin drew out his lineup before Friday night's series opener against the Padres, he didn't treat his newly activated second baseman as if he entered with a dismal .179 batting average. Mackanin looked at it as if he pushed the reset button on Utley's season, which resumed Friday after 37 games missed because of a right ankle injury. The six-time all-star reentered the Phillies' lineup as their second baseman and leadoff hitter, the first time in 11 seasons he batted out of the top spot.

IF NOTHING ELSE, the Phillies' 13-5 record since the All-Star break has offered us a reminder of how much fun it is to have a winning baseball team in town. It also offers us a good opportunity to think about the next couple of seasons. Make no mistake: The Phillies are still likely to be among the worst teams in the majors next year, and they won't contend in 2017, either. The simple truth is that it will be almost impossible to cobble together a rotation that would be deep enough for even an average offense to win regularly.
