The Phillies may not be turning heads, but at least they haven't succumbed to the easiest of temptations - packing it in following a seemingly hopeless first half of the season. On the day Cole Hamels' departure to Texas was made official, the Phillies continued their unexpected second-half turnaround with a 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night. Entering the evening, the Phillies were tied with the San Francisco Giants for the best winning percentage since the all-star break.

CHICAGO - Jeff Francoeur, among the unlikeliest of Phillies' trade candidates entering the season, reiterated Friday he does not wish to be dealt elsewhere before the July 31 trade deadline. The hot-hitting journeyman rightfielder is not helping his case the more he provides late-game heroics. His two-run home run in Friday's 10th inning sparked the Phillies to their 5-3 win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, the sixth win in seven games since the all-star break for the team still with baseball's worst record.

Jeff Francoeur spent the first three months of last season in the minor leagues. He was a nine-year major-league veteran traversing the western United States by bus with the El Paso Chihuahuas. He worked his way back to the major leagues, first, by accepting the Phillies' non-roster invitation to spring training. The 31-year-old then played himself onto the opening-day roster by securing the final bench spot. And now Francoeur is playing himself into a starting role. Francoeur's major-league comeback continued Sunday as his walk-off homer lifted the Phillies past the Miami Marlins, 8-7, at Citizens Bank Park.

Chad Billingsley cruised through the first five innings in a 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies starter threw just 70 pitches as he scattered four hits without allowing a run. It was his finest performance of the season. Four more outs and it would have been his longest outing since 2012. But the mound was empty to start the sixth inning. The bullpen door opened and Jake Diekman jogged to the infield. Billingsley was done. The righthander's stellar night ended with a bizarre finish.

SAN FRANCISCO - Jeff Francoeur had a flight to catch to get to Atlanta, where he'll celebrate his daughter's second birthday. Darin Ruf was going back to Philadelphia on the team charter flight. Freddy Galvis was joining Carlos Ruiz on a trip to Panama, Justin De Fratus was heading down the coast to his offseason home in Southern California, and Chase Utley was sticking around in San Francisco, where he's made a home in recent years. It's fair to say everyone in the visiting clubhouse, no matter where they were headed yesterday afternoon, was eager for a break.

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 - 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.
