Overall, he entered Friday batting .252 with 6 home runs, 38 RBIs, and 60 runs scored.

It may not be the World Series ring he really wants (and still has a kind of outside chance at getting), but the Washington Nationals found a way to give retiring manager Davey Johnson a nice going-away gift: pounding the heck out of those New York Mets. The Nats outhomered the Mets, 13-0, in a four-game sweep capped with a 7-2 win on Thursday afternoon - the 70-year-old Johnson's last game managing in New York. Johnson, who famously led the Mets to the 1986 World Series championship, is stepping down due to an aching back.

NEW YORK - Ryne Sandberg went to 10 All-Star Games and won nine Gold Gloves as a second baseman. But Sandberg made his first 128 major league starts at third base, and thus has some working knowledge of what it's like to be a young player at an infield position that can be unforgiving if you're unprepared. Sandberg has repeatedly raved about rookie Cody Asche. "He's the full package down there at third base," said the Hall of Fame player-turned-manager. Asche has dazzled with his glove for a month.

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.

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.

The New York Mets' troubles aren't confined to their record as of last week's All-Star break, which made the .500 Phillies look downright hopeful. The team also made the mistake of scheduling a Native American Heritage Night for this week - on the day of a game against the tomahawk-chopping Atlanta Braves. After belatedly discovering the unfortunate coincidence, the team tried to dial back the festivities, which were being organized in partnership with the New York-based American Indian Community House.

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 - 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.

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.
