Bobby Abreu stood Monday in the outfield at Citizens Bank Park and took a look around at the 45,000-plus fans, the same Phillies faithful he had played in front of for nearly nine seasons. And yet on a damp June night, as Abreu played in Philadelphia for the first time since being traded to the New York Yankees in 2006, so much was different. Those were happy days, he said, even if his time here came to an end when he was labeled a poor clubhouse guy and shipped to New York for little in return.

It is unknown whether D.J. Reyburn can read minds. It is fairly certain, though, that Bud Selig and his posse in the commissioner's office can read written words. So Jonathan Papelbon won't be fined for being the first player ejected because an umpire read his thoughts. But the Phillies closer probably can expect an involuntary payroll deduction for his comments after Monday night's 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I thought he was terrible," Papelbon said of Reyburn's work behind the plate.

LOS ANGELES – If the Phillies are going to make the kind of second-half run they insist is possible, they likely will need to utilize the same formula that Monday night led to a 3-2 win over the Dodgers. That means excellent starting pitching, near-flawless relief, and some timely hitting from their established stars. Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins both hit solo home runs, while Joe Blanton held the Dodgers to two runs over eight innings before turning things over to Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth as the Phillies won for the third time in four games since the All-Star break.

In a move to bolster their rotation for the stretch run, the Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired veteran righthander Greg Maddux from the San Diego Padres, the Los Angeles Times reported last night. The newspaper cited an anonymous person close to the deal. It was not known who San Diego would receive in return. The 42-year-old Maddux is 6-9 with a 3.99 ERA this season. He is 353-223 in a 22-year big-league career, having won four consecutive Cy Young Awards from 1992 to 1995.

Indians outfielder Abraham Almonte has been suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. MLB said Friday that Almonte tested positive for Boldenone, an anabolic steroid generally used by veterinarians on horses. The 26-year-old outfielder will not be allowed to play in regular season games until July, but he can play in spring training. Almonte was likely to compete for a starting job in the outfield while Michael Brantley works his way back from a shoulder injury.

Baseball made its call on the Chase Utley slide: out. Major League Baseball and the players union have banned rolling blocks to break up potential double plays, hoping to prevent a repeat of the takeout by Utley that broke the leg of New York Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada during last year's playoffs. "From my understanding, we've been trying to work on this for a few years now," Utley said at the Los Angeles Dodgers' camp, "so I don't think one instance determined everything. " Maybe, but fans may see it another way - the Chase Utley Rule.

NEW YORK - Pitching matchups like these are more regularly seen in the first game of a division series, for which teams well in advance line up their best arms to pitch. This one comes in a winner-take-all Game 5. Zack Greinke, the second of the Los Angeles Dodgers' two aces, and Jacob deGrom, breakout star of the New York Mets, take the mound Thursday night at Dodger Stadium with each team's season hanging in the balance. The successes or failures of either righthander could very well decide which team advances to play the Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series.

NEW YORK — There was no retribution, no hit batsmen, no bench-clearing brawls. Two nights after Chase Utley's takeout slide broke the leg of Ruben Tejada, the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers appeared to put their grievances aside and just play baseball. That proved a winning formula for the suddenly hot-hitting Mets in Citi Field's first postseason game Monday. A 13-7 rout of the Dodgers in front of an electric, sold out, orange-rally towel waving crowd left the Mets a win away from moving on to the National League Championship Series.

NEW YORK - The horde of photographers, television cameramen and iPhone-wielding reporters turned its attention toward the tarp covering the first-base line at Citi Field at about 6:15 p.m. Monday. Chase Utley had taken the field, clad in Los Angeles Dodgers blue, to stretch alongside his teammates. In the hours leading to first pitch of Game 3 of this National League division series, the 36-year-old second baseman and former Phillies star was again the center of attention. The ongoing appeal of his two-game suspension stemming from his controversial takeout slide on Saturday permitted Utley to play for the Dodgers on Monday.

NEW YORK - On the eve of a pivotal Game 3 of the National League division series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets, Major League Baseball announced it suspended Chase Utley for Games 3 and 4 for his illegal slide during Saturday night's Dodgers win. Utley will appeal the suspension, meaning he might still be eligible to play Monday night. In a statement, Utley's agent, Joel Wolfe, called the suspension "outrageous and completely unacceptable. " The late, double-play-disrupting takeout slide by Utley, the longtime Phillies star now playing for the Dodgers, resulted in a broken leg for Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada.

TORONTO - Throughout the months of speculation regarding where Cole Hamels will pitch the final three-plus guaranteed years of his contract, the Los Angeles Dodgers have often been mentioned as an apt trading partner for the Phillies. That remains the case in the final days leading to the highly anticipated trade deadline. But with the days passing until 4 p.m. Friday, the Texas Rangers - reportedly along with the Dodgers the front-runners to land Hamels - might be the ideal team for the Phillies to trade their 31-year-old ace. Despite entering the week 47-50, 7.5 games behind the American League West-leading Los Angeles Angels and 4.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins in the crowded wild-card race, the Rangers could acquire Hamels with an eye toward next season.

Kershaw, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, dominated baseball's worst team with his first complete game shutout of the season.

LOS ANGELES - For the first 11 years of his professional baseball career, Chad Billingsley was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. The righthander was the Dodgers' first-round draft pick in 2003. He represented them in the All-Star Game in 2009. He has won more games at Dodger Stadium than any active pitcher not named Clayton Kershaw. On the heels of consecutive seasons lost to elbow surgeries, Billingsley returned to his former home mound Tuesday night as a member of the Phillies.
