CHICAGO - David Ross walked to the top of the dugout steps on Friday afternoon and doffed his helmet, much to the pleasure of the raucous Wrigley Field crowd. Adam Morgan, who allowed three homers in a 6-2 loss to the Cubs, was left alone on the mound as he weathered another frustrating start. Morgan allowed six runs on eight hits. He was removed in the fifth inning after giving up a leadoff homer to Kris Bryant. Morgan has allowed 22 earned runs in 292/3 innings since being promoted from triple A at the end of April.

CHICAGO - Maikel Franco promised that he would be ready to play Friday after he left Wednesday's game with a sprained ankle. He said his ankle would be fine after the Phillies had a scheduled off day Thursday. Franco was right. He started at third base Friday and drove in both of the team's runs in a 6-2 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field. He went 1 for 2 with a walk and two RBIs. Franco had a sacrifice fly in the third and an RBI single in the seventh. The ankle was not an issue, manager Pete Mackanin said.

DETROIT - The fans at Comerica Park rose to their feet Tuesday night as Justin Verlander stoically walked to the dugout, his glove held by the right hand that perplexed the Phillies for eight innings in a 3-1 loss to the Tigers. The pitcher's night was finished. Odubel Herrera - the victim of Verlander's 10th strikeout of the night - was left pondering the fastball he missed as the pitcher listened to the cheers. It was the 32nd time in Verlander's career, and the third time this season, that he struck out 10 batters.

THEY DON'T score many runs. Sometimes they don't score any. They play awful one night, put you to sleep the next, make you say 'Wow' the day after. The crooked numbers once posted by the all-powerful, mostly American lineups of the most recent resurgence of the Phillies, the one that electrified this town over the previous decade, are long gone, replaced by wins of the smallest of margins, and a game played on them as well. Bunting. Sacs in the air and on the ground. First-to-thirds.

The winning pattern for Phillies righthander Jerad Eickhoff this year has been simple: Pitch seven scoreless innings and watch the bullpen finish matters. Eickhoff earned his second win of the season with seven shutout innings Sunday as the Phillies defeated the Braves, 5-0, winning one of their three games with Atlanta at Citizens Bank Park. On April 13, Eickhoff also pitched seven scoreless innings and got the win in a 2-1 triumph over San Diego. In between, things have not gone as smoothly.

Andres Blanco practices his swing each afternoon in a lonely batting cage. He lifts weights and stretches without the company of teammates. Blanco - the Phillies super utility player - is the first player to arrive at Citizens Bank Park, pulling into the empty ballpark nearly seven hours before each game. Blanco left his native Venezuela 16 years ago with a $3,000 signing bonus. He is lauded for his work ethic and character. Blanco gets to the batting cage early so it will be open when the team's everyday players are ready to hit. Blanco hits the weight room first so the trainers can then focus their attention on the starting lineup.

The crowd rose Monday at Citizens Bank Park for an unfamiliar ritual, to laud a Phillies hitter. Tommy Joseph cracked a single up the middle to start the sixth inning of a 5-3 loss to Miami. It was the first major-league hit for the 24-year-old first baseman, and as the scoreboard flashed his achievement, the weeknight crowd roared. These moments are fleeting because the Phillies cannot have nice things. Six pitches later, Freddy Galvis erased Joseph. The shortstop bounced into a routine 5-4-3 double play.

The nadir of the Phillies' Latin American scouting and development program is easily identifiable. Look back at the 1989 season, and you'll find an opening-day roster that included as many players born in France as the Dominican Republic. When Juan Samuel was traded to the New York Mets later that season, the French population ruled over the Latin one inside the Phillies clubhouse. Vive la France never was a great slogan for a big-league baseball team, and since born-in-Paris shortstop Steve Jeltz was the only French representative, it really would have been a rotten one. Not surprisingly, the Phillies of that era were awful.

ATLANTA - No team in baseball has played more games on the road than this young Phillies squad, and after spending 19 of the last 22 days away from home, the players readied for a happy flight Thursday night. Their boundless 24-year-old leadoff hitter reached base five times against the hapless Braves in a 7-4 win. Their enigmatic 26-year-old shortstop crushed another home run. Their slumping 27-year-old catcher delivered the game-winning double in extra innings. The Phillies will come home, improbably, with one of the best records in the National League.

ST. LOUIS - Pete Mackanin visited the mound in the ninth inning of Wednesday night's 5-4 loss just as Busch Stadium was starting to become unglued. The Cardinals had the bases loaded. The Phillies had a one-run lead. Mackanin, the Phillies manager, told his closer to get a ground ball. A double play would end it. Jeanmar Gomez listened. He induced Stephen Piscotty to hit a grounder, but the ball was slapped wide of shortstop Freddy Galvis. Galvis slid to field the hit, but the game was tied.
