With the air as thick as pea soup, the temperature was 98 degrees when Cole Hamels delivered the first pitch against the San Diego Padres on Friday night at Citizens Bank Park. Before the game, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said that Scott Sheridan, the club's head athletic trainer, emphasized to the players that they should be properly hydrated. If time allowed, players also could head up a tunnel to the clubhouse to cool down. The heat exhaustion suffered by Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay during Monday's searing heat in Chicago served as a reminder to his teammates of the dangers of this heat wave.

A man who barricaded himself with his two children inside a South Philadelphia rowhouse for about seven hours Sunday surrendered to police around 5:30 p.m. The man locked himself in his house in the 1800 block of Dickinson Street after police arrived at 10:15 a.m. to investigate a report that he had killed a cat. He had set the cat on fire and hung it on a fence on the side of his house. Police did release the man's identity, but neighbors said he was Alvair Desousa, a contractor.

With temperatures in the mid-90s, magnified by rising humidity, the National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning for the Philadelphia area through 8 p.m. Monday. Service providers were standing by, and emergency officials warned workers and at-risk populations to take precautions to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Temperatures began rising Saturday night, and by Sunday afternoon, humidity was making it feel more like 105 degrees, said Mitchell Gaines, a meteorologist with the weather service's Mount Holly bureau.

Could a smartphone application save you in a heat wave? On the job or at play outside, look for relief to the OSHA Heat Safety Tool , available in English and Spanish from the U.S. Department of Labor. The free app for Android, Apple, and BlackBerry devices calculates a heat index - a combination of temperature and humidity. But what's important is the accompanying page of precautions to be taken. During high to extreme heat, the app says, outdoor work should be rescheduled for a cooler day. If it must go on, there needs to be drinking water on site, and there ought to be shade.

An apparently vacant home in the Wissinoming section of the city collapsed Saturday afternoon, but it was unclear what might have caused an explosion reported by neighbors. No one appeared to have been injured when the house came down, officials said. Final word about injuries could take hours, Philadelphia police said, as they had to clear rubble to gain access to the basement. The house, on the 4700 block of East Howell Street, came down shortly before 12:30 p.m. Less than 21/2 hours later, a backhoe was beginning to clear debris.

A Camden police dog died of "heat exhaustion" last week after a temperature alarm system in the vehicle he was left in failed to alert the K-9 officer that the air conditioner had broken, city police and the animal's trainer said Monday. "Most of the electrics went out. And the air conditioner, instead of cooling the vehicle, was pulling all the heat from the engine. [The dog] probably went in like 10 minutes," said Joe Rodriguez, supervising trainer at the Atlantic County K-9 Academy in Egg Harbor Township.

It took Roy Halladay 91 pitches to throw five innings Sunday. His face was not pale, as it was six days earlier in Chicago. He was sweating, but an illness no longer tormented his stomach, draining him of the fluids necessary to sustain the violent act of throwing a baseball over and over again in stifling heat. The first five innings of a 5-3 Phillies victory over San Diego were not Halladay's best. He could have gutted one more frame, handed the ball to the bullpen, and no one would have minded.

IT PROBABLY wouldn't have seemed like a big deal, except . . . Even the best pitchers have off days, except . . . There was Roy Halladay in the top of the fifth inning. He'd already allowed three runs on eight hits and the Padres had runners on second and third with two outs. He'd already thrown 90 pitches and the count was 3-2 to San Diego catcher Kyle Phillips. And this was the defending National League Cy Young Award winner's first start since a week ago in Wrigley Field, when he allowed seven hits and three runs in just four innings before being forced to leave the game with what was announced as heat exhaustion.
