Those seeking both similarities and differences in the two teams that will meet in the 2009 National League division series, which begins today at Citizens Bank Park, don't need to look any further than left field. This off-season, for different reasons, the Phillies and Rockies both unloaded longtime, power-hitting leftfielders. But the teams filled the vacancies created by the departures of Pat Burrell and Matt Holliday in very different ways. Ruben Amaro Jr. signed Raul Ibanez to be the Phils' everyday leftfielder.

Chase Utley went 3 for 5 with two home runs and five RBIs, including a grand slam in the fourth inning, as the Phillies beat the Rockies, 10-8, Friday night. Pat Burrell and Aaron Rowand also homered. The Phillies had a 10-4 lead in the bottom of the ninth, and it looked like they would cruise to an easy victory and save the back end of their bullpen. But Julio Santana loaded the bases and allowed a bases-clearing double to Matt Holliday to make it 10-7. That forced manager Charlie Manuel to use setup man Arthur Rhodes and closer Tom Gordon.

For the first game after an all-star break, there usually is no question whether a relief pitcher is available for duty. But Phillies manager Charlie Manuel wasn't completely sure whether Brad Lidge would be available for work when the all-star closer reported to Dolphin Stadium for last night's game against the Florida Marlins. "We've got to see how he feels when he plays catch," Manuel said. Lidge warmed up six times before entering Tuesday night's All-Star Game in the 15th inning.

The Colorado Rockies are closing in on a record-breaking contract extension with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Denver Post reported yesterday. The Rockies and their shortstop have agreed to the framework of a six-year, $30 million contract, which would be the largest extension ever given to a major-league player with fewer than two years of experience. Tulowitzki finished second in the rookie-of-the-year voting, behind Milwaukee's Ryan Braun. The Rockies star hit .291 with 24 home runs and 99 RBIs as Colorado reached the World Series.

The Colorado Rockies want to lock up Matt Holliday with a long-term deal. For now, they've settled on 2 years. The All-Star leftfielder agreed to a $23 million, 2-year contract with Colorado yesterday, avoiding arbitration only hours before players and teams exchanged salary figures. "This is the first step in a process we hope will lead to a long-term relationship with him," Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd said. Holliday, runner-up for the NL MVP award last season, hit .340 with 137 RBI, becoming the third player since 1967 to lead a league in both categories.

Joe Maddon had a good reason for interrupting his honeymoon. About an hour after he landed in Rome, Maddon easily won the American League Manager of the Year award yesterday for guiding Tampa Bay from baseball's basement to the World Series in one astonishing season. Lou Piniella took the NL honor after leading the Chicago Cubs to the league's best record. Maddon, who succeeded Piniella as Tampa Bay manager in 2006, was a runaway winner in balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

FIRST BASE   Rockies: Todd Helton. He has played in five All-Star Games, is a .332 lifetime hitter and has 303 career homers. He's also above average on defense. But, maybe since he's also played in 1,578 games without making the postseason before this, Helton's profile isn't as high as it should be. He's the player the Rockies rally around. "When you have a player who has meant as much to a franchise as Todd has meant to the Rockies . . . it makes what we are going through that much more meaningful," Matt Holliday said recently.

MATT HOLLIDAY hit a tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse won his eighth consecutive decision, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Monday night. Holliday led off the sixth inning with his 24th homer, a drive to rightfield off A.J. Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good at 3-2. Lohse (14-2) pitched five innings and threw 83 pitches before being lifted following a 34-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out three and walking none.

ST. LOUIS - Giants manager Bruce Bochy expects Marco Scutaro to be in the lineup for Game 3 of the National League Championship series, 2 days after St. Louis slugger Matt Holliday plowed into the second baseman. "I think so. It feels much better," Scutaro said Tuesday night after participating in a workout at Busch Stadium. "I thought it was going to be worse. Normally, the next day is when you feel it the most. " Neither seemed too interested in any talk of retaliation.

Ryne Sandberg tried everything, but even using every single position player and each reliever wasn't enough to hold off the St. Louis Cardinals. Matt Carpenter's 12th inning sacrifice fly was the difference during Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park. Sandberg was managing this like it was the seventh game of the World Series. For instance Chase Utley started at second moved to first and went back to second. It was his first time at first base since May 6, 2008.

Initially, it looked like the same old story, with Kyle Kendrick once again having the first-inning blues, but the Phillies righthander showed some true fight. There couldn't have been many believers at Citizens Bank Park when Kendrick allowed three runs before his teammates got to face one of the best pitchers in baseball. Yet Kendrick showed some grit while St. Louis Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright scuffled uncharacteristically through six laborious innings. The Cardinals ace couldn't hold the lead while Kendrick regrouped during the Phillies' 5-4 win on Friday.

ST. LOUIS - Cole Hamels was pitching - and hitting - adeptly, but his work on the mound was not enough to keep the Phillies' road roll going. Afterward, Hamels had nothing to say about his performance at the plate or on the mound. On this steamy day in St. Louis, the Phillies ace finally met his match in St. Louis Cardinals righthander Adam Wainwright. Mixing speeds and working both sides of the plate, Wainwright went eight strong innings during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Phillies before 44,789 at sold-out Busch Stadium.

ST. LOUIS - A.J. Burnett and the Phillies have had quite a turnaround since the righthander's last start. With Burnett pitching his first complete game since August, the Phillies defeated the Cardinals, 5-1, Friday at Busch Stadium in a game delayed 50 minutes at the start due to rain. The Phillies (34-38) have now won five in a row, all on the road. The last loss was Sunday's 3-0 defeat to the visiting Chicago Cubs, with Burnett the losing pitcher. Since then, the Phillies have enjoyed their best stretch of the season, sweeping the Atlanta Braves and now winning the first two of a four-game series in St. Louis.

MILWAUKEE - Erik Kratz hit a ground ball to shortstop in the ninth inning of Saturday night's game at Miller Park and heard a pop. Afterward, he moved through the visiting clubhouse with the use of crutches. He was on a plane and headed for an MRI table the next morning. Before yesterday's game, the Phils placed Kratz on the 15-day disabled list with a left leg injury. The severity of the injury won't be known until after his MRI. But for at least the next week, the Phillies will play without both of their top two catchers.

SAN FRANCISCO - Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants saved their season once more, pushing St. Louis to a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NL Championship Series. Turns out the defending champion Cardinals aren't the only team that's tough to put away in October. Vogelsong, a former star at Octorara High and Kutztown, struck out a career-best nine batters in another postseason gem, and the Giants avoided elimination for a second straight game by beating St. Louis, 6-1, on Sunday night.

Vogelsong struck out a career-best nine in another postseason gem, and the Giants avoided elimination for a second straight game by beating St. Louis, 6-1, on Sunday night. Marco Scutaro delivered a two-run double and Buster Posey drove in his first run of the series with a groundout in the first inning as San Francisco struck early to support Vogelsong.

ST. LOUIS - One more win and another bunch of wild-card Cardinals get their chance to repeat. Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and St. Louis roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-3 rout Thursday night that gave the Cardinals a 3-1 lead in the NLCS. The defending World Series champions can wrap up their second straight pennant as a wild card with a victory at home Friday night in Game 5. Lance Lynn faces Giants lefty Barry Zito, and a Cardinals win would set up a 2006 World Series rematch with Detroit.
