WASHINGTON - Kyle Kendrick did not wait for Ryne Sandberg to reach him. He held the ball in his right hand, descended the mound, and surrendered it to his interim manager without breaking stride toward the Phillies dugout. "I just didn't do my job," Kendrick said later. It's a familiar refrain. A 6-1 loss to the Nationals devolved in the fifth inning when Sandberg yet again called for his starter's early exit. Kendrick allowed all six runs in 41/3 innings. While the Phillies limp to the finish, their Washington rivals can fantasize about a monumental comeback for a wild-card berth.

WASHINGTON - Two weeks earlier, Kyle Kendrick sat in the visiting clubhouse at New York's Citi Field and pondered both his odd 2013 season and the uncertainty of where he'd be in 2014. "I want to be here," Kendrick said of a Phillies team he's been with longer than any pitcher except Cole Hamels. "I feel like I haven't pitched horrible enough to be gone. " Kendrick, who has improved dramatically since being jettisoned to the minor leagues in the spring of 2009, may have been the Phillies most consistent starting pitcher in the first 2 months of the 2013 season.

Freddy Galvis enjoyed the type of statement game that he needs to ensure a roster spot with the Phillies next season. Galvis hit a solo home run in the ninth inning off Freddy Garcia, giving the Phillies a 6-5 win Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. Now hitting .216, Galvis went 4 for 5 with the homer and two RBIs as the Phillies won their second in a row over an Atlanta Braves team that long ago ran away from the pack. Galvis' home run was his second game-ending shot this season.

CHICAGO - The signing of Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez on Friday brought the front end of the Phillies' 2014 starting rotation into crystal clear focus. Barring a trade or injury, the top three starters next season are likely to be Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Gonzalez, a trio that should be good enough to win as long as some other roster alterations are made. Still unclear is what the back end of the rotation will look like, with Kyle Kendrick's downward spiral being one of the main reasons.

NEW YORK - Kyle Kendrick glanced at his phone the other day and saw a message from one of his brothers. It was video of their dad, Maury Kendrick, pitching. The elder Kendrick plays on an amateur team with Kyle's brothers. "He still pitches and he's in his 50s," Kyle Kendrick said of his dad. "He was blessed with good genetics and a healthy arm. " Apparently it's the gift that keeps giving, as the same genetic trait was passed on to Kendrick. Kendrick, 29, has never spent a day on the disabled list, not even in the minor leagues.

Under interim manager Ryne Sandberg, the Phillies are showing that they are willing to play to the final out. And for the last two nights, they have needed almost every one. For the second consecutive night, the Phillies staged a ninth-inning rally in a comeback win over the Colorado Rockies. On Thursday, trailing by 4-3 entering the ninth, the Phillies scored twice, with Domonic Brown's RBI single off lefthander Jeff Francis the difference in a 5-4 win at Citizens Bank Park.

It's difficult to imagine that at the all-star break, the Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers were on even footing. Now one team is gearing for October, and the other for next season. The differing paths continued with the Dodgers' 5-0 win Saturday night over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, making interim manager Ryne Sandberg 0-2 and waiting for his team to score a run. The Phillies have been shut out 12 times this season. After games played on July 14, the Phillies entered the all-star break 48-48, and the Dodgers were 47-47.

The quickest hook of this charmless season came in its 107th game, when Kyle Kendrick stared into the dugout after his 58th pitch. There was Charlie Manuel, climbing the stairs. A smattering of cheers greeted him. No Phillies starter had thrown fewer pitches than Kendrick before removal. A 9-2 defeat to San Francisco was rendered with haste. The irrelevant baseball was brutal. Of greater concern: Kendrick's effectiveness has depreciated with this team's. He threw the first pitch at 7:07 p.m. His night was complete at 7:58.

DETROIT - Before Friday, the most money the Phillies had ever spent to sign an international player was $1.2 million in 2001 for a Korean righthander named Seung Lee. He never reached the majors, and the scout who recommended the pitcher was fired a few years later. That is just one reason why the Phillies' reported signing of Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez late Friday night sent shockwaves through the industry. The Phillies will pay Gonzalez a possible $59 million over six years, the richest deal ever awarded to an international player, according to a Yahoo!

ST. LOUIS - This is the time for meetings. Meetings with scouts, meetings with coaches, meetings with players. No one is safe from the Phillies' lifeless performances. This sinking ship departed Missouri Thursday night and set course for Michigan having endured three lifeless losses in three agonizing days here. There will be more meetings in Detroit because the time for reckoning is upon this team. The Phillies lost again, 3-1, to the powerhouse Cardinals, a team that flaunted its superior brand of baseball.
