THE DAY after the Phillies were no-hit in a nine-inning game for the first time in 36 years, Ryne Sandberg employed an almost identical lineup to the one that went 0-for-27 against the Dodgers' Josh Beckett. It was a show of confidence from the Philadelphia manager, and one that paid off. Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Ben Revere combined to tally nine hits and drive in seven runs in yesterday's 9-0 victory against the Colorado Rockies at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies' highest scoring output in 9 days featured 12 hits, a five-run seventh inning and four pitchers combining for the shutout.

The losing finally stopped for Kyle Kendrick, and at least for a day, the hitting started again for the Phillies. Both Kendrick and the Phillies reversed slides Monday in a 9-0 win over the Colorado Rockies at Citizens Bank Park. Kendrick pitched 62/3 innings in snapping a personal 10-game losing streak. His last win had come Aug. 6, 2013, in a 9-8 slugfest over the Chicago Cubs. In between, Kendrick had gone 16 starts without a win. "It was tough, a little grind sometimes," Kendrick said.

MIAMI - Larry Bowa stood on the top step of the dugout in the eighth inning. He pointed at Reid Brignac, and then the 68-year-old bench coach mimicked a pitching motion. Brignac, the shortstop, pounded his fist in his glove. A 14-5 Phillies loss to the Marlins devolved Wednesday night to this moment. Brignac was next to pitch if Luis Garcia, appearing for the first time in two weeks, could not survive a gruesome inning. Garcia fanned Christian Yelich with his 49th pitch, and there was mercy.

MIAMI - On Friday, Kyle Kendrick pointed the finger at himself after giving up three first-inning runs in a loss to the Cincinnati Reds. But it was a little difficult to fault Kendrick that night, since they were the only runs he allowed and since the Phillies failed to score at all. The Phils had also been shut out the previous night, and in two of the last three times Kendrick took the mound. In his last 15 starts, the Phillies were averaging 2.36 runs per nine innings in games when Kendrick took the mound.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg tried switching up the lineup, but little is working for the feeble offense these days. The Phillies extended their scoreless streak to 20 innings during Friday's 3-0 loss to the Cincinnati Reds at Citizens Bank Park. Not only are the Phillies 0-3 during this homestand, but they have lost four in a row and are 17-22. The Phillies have lost eight of their last 10, four by shutout. At least they went down with a fight, albeit a late one. Reds closer Aroldis Chapman, in his third game since returning after being hit by a line drive in spring training, got the first two batters in the ninth before John Mayberry Jr. walked and Cody Asche singled and advanced to second on Billy Hamilton's error in center, with Mayberry reaching third.

KYLE KENDRICK was a pitch away from either getting out of a dicey seventh inning, or, in his words, letting the game get "out of hand. " But with the bases loaded and one out on Monday night, and Toronto already up, 3-0, Kendrick threw a 3-1 sinker and watched as Edwin Encarnacion grounded into a 6-4-3 doubleplay to end the inning. But it wasn't a traditional 6-4-3 doubleplay. Shortstop Freddy Galvis fielded the ball in the hole between where a third baseman and shortstop are usually positioned.

When the Phillies were mustering up for another postseason run near the trade deadline in 2010, they needed to put a starting pitcher in the trade package to the Houston Astros for Roy Oswalt. The Astros were looking to get younger - and looking to shave some salary, which goes hand in hand - and the choices weren't all that many. Houston could go after J.A. Happ, Vance Worley, or Kyle Kendrick. That was the inventory in stock. Pages fall off the calendar, the Phillies eventually fell off the postseason parade at the end of the 2011 season, and two of the guys who were near the epicenter of that trade with the Astros took the mound Monday night in front of friends and family at Citizens Bank Park.

The Monday night crowd of 25,275 was small by Citizens Bank Park standards, which made for a sea of blue seats when Jose Reyes launched a Kyle Kendrick sinker at 7:10 p.m. Just one minute into a 3-0 Phillies loss, few had settled in and Toronto led. A quick deficit was not ideal, but it is not what sentenced the Phillies to a wasted night. Not when the Blue Jays started J.A. Happ, limited in pitches because he spent the previous 12 days unused, with a porous bullpen behind him. Toronto relievers lugged a 5.33 ERA to Philadelphia, even worse than the Phillies' condemned unit.

FIVE SUMMERS ago, J.A. Happ was a vital cog in an everchanging Phillies pitching staff that eventually found itself in a World Series. A 26-year-old rookie out of Northwestern, Happ replaced Chan Ho Park in the rotation in mid-May, making his first start of the 2009 season at Yankee Stadium. He kept making his turn every 5 days, threw a pair of shutouts and managed to hold on to his spot in the starting five, even after general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. added both Pedro Martinez and Cliff Lee in July.
