Aaron Harang was supposed to drive the Pennsylvania Turnpike's Northeast Extension on Thursday morning and pitch in Allentown. The plan called for Harang to make a rehab start with triple-A Lehigh Valley before joining the Phillies. But the team's plans were expedited. Harang was in the majors - not the minors - Thursday. The righthander's opposition was not the triple-A Yankees, but the major-league Braves, whom he stymied for five innings in a 4-1 win. Despite no rehab start, he looked fit as he allowed one run. Harang had been sidelined since July 1 with plantar fasciitis, which caused a stabbing pain in the bottom of his left foot.

COLE HAMELS' legacy in Philadelphia begins and ends with arguably having the most influence over ending the city's championship drought in 2008. But a no-hitter in what might have been his final start in a Phillies uniform was pretty impressive, too. "Nothing will top winning a World Series, but I think this is probably on that top list," Hamels said. "It's right under it. " Daily News beat writer Ryan Lawrence, who has covered Hamels since the beginning of the 2008 season, picks his top five Hamels moments.

Eleven starting pitchers were used in the first 91 games of this dismal Phillies season, and most of those who made up baseball's worst first-half rotation do not figure to play a part in the rebuilding club's future. Amid the presence of stopgap starters such as Aaron Harang, Jerome Williams and Kevin Correia, the average age of the Phillies' first-half starters was 291/2 years old. This is in part why fans have long clamored to see top pitching prospect Aaron Nola, the 22-year-old righthander who is likely to garner a promotion in the coming weeks.

CINCINNATI - Yesterday's event was the most important to the Phillies during these All-Star festivities. It's certainly not tomorrow night's All-Star Game, in which closer Jonathan Papelbon will be the Phillies' lone representative. The only reason Philadelphia is even represented in the 86th edition is because of the archaic rule that says each franchise must be represented - even one that already is 33 games under .500. Furthermore, if all goes according to plan, Papelbon won't be a Phillie for much longer.

LOS ANGELES — A night after falling victim to a dominant Clayton Kershaw, the Phillies ran into another buzzsaw in Zack Greinke. Greinke's incredible recent run of success reached a new apex Thursday night at Dodger Stadium, where the Los Angeles righthander allowed merely one hit over eight shutout innings. While lowering his already major-league best ERA, the former Cy Young Award winner sent the Phillies to San Francisco on the heels of a second consecutive shutout loss, 6-0. The Phillies fell to a woeful 30 games under .500, the earliest in a season they have done so since 1997.

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.

LOS ANGELES - The Phillies may have an eventual replacement for Chase Utley with the hot-hitting Cesar Hernandez. Shortstop Freddy Galvis has handled himself well in Year One and top prospect J.P. Crawford will also vie for the heir to Jimmy Rollins' throne before too long, too. Have the Phillies found the eventual heir apparent to Ryan Howard at first base? Last night, the Phillies announced that they had come to an agreement with 16-year-old Dominican slugger Jhailyn Ortiz.

LOS ANGELES - Even though the Phillies needed a starting pitcher for Saturday in San Francisco, Aaron Nola's major-league debut will not come until after the all-star break next week. Nola, the organization's top pitching prospect, was not considered an option to start Saturday, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Tuesday. The Phillies created the rotation opening by outrighting struggling righthander Sean O'Sullivan off the 40-man roster after a 10-7 loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

LOS ANGELES - In what could be one of his final appearances in a Phillies uniform, Jonathan Papelbon will be on the National League roster for the All-Star Game next Tuesday night in Cincinnati. Even the 34-year-old closer admitted Monday he would be surprised - and disappointed, too - if he isn't dealt before the July 31 trade deadline. "I think everybody knows where I'm at," he said on the day he learned of his all-star selection. "It's no secret. I've always been straightforward that I want to go play for a contender, and I'm not going to shy away from that.
