NEW YORK - Any good feeling the Phillies received from their first game after the all-star break was squashed in their second. Following Friday's 13-8 win over the New York Mets, the Phillies found scoring much more challenging during Saturday's 5-4 loss at Citi Field. The Phillies made it interesting by scoring two unearned runs in the ninth off closer Bobby Parnell. Michael Young reached base on a two-out error by first baseman Josh Satin. Chase Utley then drilled a two-run home run to right.

NEW YORK - Phillies righthander Roy Halladay threw his first bullpen session since undergoing shoulder surgery on May 15. According to Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee, Halladay threw 20 pitches, all fastballs. The session was on Sunday morning, hours before the Phillies' 5-0 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field. Dubee won't set a timetable for Halladay's return, but he said he was encouraged by what he saw. "It's a start," Dubee said. "He will determine how fast he will go by how he is feeling and as we increase reps.

JOSE REYES went hitless in his return to Citi Field and Lucas Duda lined a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning that caromed off reliever Edward Mujica, sending the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. A fan favorite during nine seasons with the Mets, Reyes was back to play in New York for the first time since signing a $106 million, 6-year contract with the division-rival Marlins in December. He said it was an exciting and emotional day, but he wasn't sure what to expect.

New York Mets rookie Matt Harvey started his big-league career in style Thursday night, becoming the first major-leaguer since 1900 to strike out more than 10 and get multiple hits in his debut. Harvey (1-0) struck out 11 and gave up just three hits in 51/3 innings in a 3-1 win over Arizona. He looked sharp at the plate as well, notching a double in the second and a single in the fourth. The Diamondbacks gave him credit, rather than claiming to be, uh, snakebit. "He had good life on the fastball and spotted the ball well.

NEW YORK - The Phillies have won four consecutive series. To make it a fifth, they will have to beat one of the brightest young stars in the game after splitting their first two games with the New York Mets. On Sunday, Cliff Lee (10-3, 2.86) will oppose Mets righthander Matt Harvey (7-2, 2.35) at Citi Field. Harvey is coming off a sparkling performance at his home stadium with two shutout innings during Tuesday's All-Star Game. Phillies leftfielder Domonic Brown saw Harvey at his best firsthand as his all-star teammate.

For most people, a trip to Las Vegas is an exciting time, but for the New York Mets' Greg Burke, shuttling to Sin City and back was an exercise in tedium and frustration. Burke, a 31-year-old graduate of Gloucester Catholic, was optioned six times during the season to the Mets' triple-A affiliate, the Las Vegas 51s in the Pacific Coast League. While Burke conceded that it was frustrating, the righthanded reliever also realized that being sent down to the minors six times also meant that he was called up to the majors six times.

NEW YORK - Fresh off the all-star break, the Phillies will begin a nine-game road trip Friday, starting with a three-game series against the New York Mets at Citi Field. And rest assured, Mets ace Matt Harvey will be healthy. Harvey was skipped in his final start before the break because of a blister on his right index finger. But he pitched two scoreless innings in Tuesday's All-Star Game. "It feels fine, and I was able to finally throw my slider, which was definitely a big help," Harvey said after his stellar showing at Citi Field.

NEW YORK - The Phillies were stymied by Matt Harvey for the third time this season, and the only consolation is that the New York Mets righthander has been unrelenting against virtually all opponents. It's just that the Phillies have had particular trouble. In an anticipated matchup of all-star pitchers, only Harvey kept up his part of the bargain with Sunday's 5-0 win over Cliff Lee and the Phillies at Citi Field. Lee allowed three home runs and five earned runs in six innings.

NEW YORK - Who would have thought that dropping his arm would prop up the baseball career of righthanded relief pitcher Greg Burke? A 2000 graduate of Gloucester Catholic High, Burke spent part of the 2009 season with the San Diego Padres, going 3-3 with a 4.14 ERA in 48 appearances. But after that, he was hit hard the next two seasons in triple A. So Burke, with nothing to lose, became a submariner, and that style of pitching has carried him back to the majors. He made the New York Mets roster out of spring training and will return home when the Mets play three games beginning Monday against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
