IT WAS only a matter of time before the National League West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers brought the surging, last-place Phillies back to earth. Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco delayed that on Tuesday with a game-winning grand slam, but the rookie slugger couldn't manage to lead his team to a series victory in Game 2 of the series last night. Franco extended his hitting streak to seven games with an RBI double in the third inning, but the Phils weren't able to compete with the Dodgers' offensive production as Jimmy Rollins and company tied the series with a 4-3 victory at Citizens Bank Park.

YOU DIDN'T really figure the Phillies would get through the second half of the season without losing back-to-back games or dropping a series. Well, did you? Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, they were trying to take a series here against the Dodgers for the first time since June 2011. And after spotting the visitors three runs in the first, they scored five of their own in their half against Zack Greinke. Before they made an out. That's the same Greinke who'd given up five first-inning runs all year.

WITH JIMMY ROLLINS in town again and Cole Hamels finally out of it, it seems a good time to reflect upon something the shortstop said shortly after he was traded to the Dodgers last December. The topic was John S. Middleton, the man who owns 48 percent of the Phillies, someone Rollins had gotten to know but who was months away from assuming a more public profile. "He wants to be in control, don't get it wrong . . . " Rollins said in a sitdown with CSN's Jim Salisbury. "He wants to put a winner out there very badly.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers shortstop Jimmy Rollins arrived at Philadelphia International Airport early Monday morning, less than 72 hours after Texas Rangers lefthander Cole Hamels flew out to Dallas. Rehabbing second baseman Chase Utley could become the next longtime Phillie on his way to a new team if he passes through waivers and a contending team trades for him later this month. As Bob Dylan said, the times, they are a-changin'. "They have [changed] . . . it's crazy," Rollins said yesterday afternoon, before his first game at Citizens Bank Park as a member of a team other than the Phillies.

THEIR INTRODUCTIONS were separated by about seven hours and 700 yards. Brian Westbrook came first, strolling out of the tunnel in the southeast corner of Lincoln Financial Field wearing a white floppy cap and an Eagles polo. Jimmy Rollins came second, stepping into the batter's box at Citizens Bank Park wearing road grays and a blue Dodgers helmet. This was yesterday, a Tuesday in early August that would have had nothing going for it if not for a couple of coincidentally scheduled events that returned two of the greatest athletes in Philadelphia history to their home crowd.

Before the Phillies threw open the gates and granted him his requested release, freeing him to play for a contending team, Jimmy Rollins delivered a dose of reality to Ruben Amaro Jr. that in time Amaro probably tired of hearing. Over his 15 seasons with the Phillies, for all the times he coasted out of the batter's box or arrived late to the ballpark or just let his intrinsic swagger get the better of him, Rollins still came away with the highest respect for his second and third managers in the majors: Larry Bowa and Charlie Manuel.

They began to rise even before longtime Phillies public address announcer Dan Baker offered his introduction, and they remained on their feet for the better part of the next minute. Jimmy Rollins twice stepped out of the batter's box and lifted his blue Los Angeles Dodgers batting helmet to thank the Citizens Bank Park crowd of 28,733 before the first at-bat of a 6-2 Phillies win Tuesday night. A standing ovation lasting about 45 seconds greeted the Phillies' all-time hits leader for his first game as a visitor.

YOU KNOW your team has entered a newer, darker stage of its rebuilding process when, in the midst of a season destined to end with 100 losses or more, the mascot falls to the ground in distress. Before the game. But that's what happened last night in South Philly, when one of the greatest athletes in the city's history returned to play his former team while wearing a different uniform for the first time. Jimmy Rollins, the former National League MVP, franchise hit king, and World Series champ, arrived at Citizens Bank Park with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
