In 40 years running Talluto's Authentic Italian Food Inc. - stores on Ninth Street in South Philly, and in Norristown and Ridley Park, and a Folcroft plant that makes Italian meals for ShopRite and Acme and other markets - Joe Talluto's family has survived a lot of banks. " First Pennsylvania, PNB, Continental, PNC, Progress, Citizens ," Talluto recites. Most vanished in mergers. At Citizens, his initial loan officer "was good, but he disappeared. " So Talluto moved to little DNB First (the former Downingtown National Bank)

DENVER - A clubhouse attendant interrupted Ryan Howard's taco dinner Sunday as he celebrated a 10-9 Phillies win at Coors Field. He handed Howard a baseball with a yellow sheet of paper that authenticated its veracity. "If they overturn it," he told the hulking first baseman, who stuffed the items into a bag bound for Los Angeles. Rockies lefthander Boone Logan threw that ball three times as a slider. Twice, Howard whiffed. He smacked it to short right field on the third attempt, and the ball skipped past Brandon Barnes.

DENVER - One of his teammates jabbed at him for his robotic, unemotional answers to the media's questions. Another picked on his sense of fashion. But John Mayberry Jr., who wore an ascot with his suit as he boarded a plane out of Denver bound for Los Angeles, took it in stride. Everyone is allowed to have a little fun at his expense when it comes after a victory, especially a victory that was preceded by two defeats in which the Phillies scored a total of two runs at the hitter's haven that is Coors Field.

DENVER - The Coors Field employee walked through the tunnel that takes you into the visiting clubhouse. He handed a baseball and a piece of paper to one of the clubhouse attendants with a message to deliver, too. "This has been authenticated," he said, "in case the play gets changed. " The clubby passed the items and words along to Ryan Howard, who was sitting in the middle of the room enjoying a postgame meal. "Just put it over there," Howard said, pointing to the equipment bag sitting in front of his locker.

DENVER - The waterfalls erupted beyond center field Friday night at Coors Field to signal a Rockies home run, and the Phillies bullpen did not budge. This was the second inning of a 12-1 Phillies embarrassment, the first test of a 10-game road trip, and Jonathan Pettibone was to endure this bludgeoning alone. Pettibone was napalm inside a flammable ballpark. Colorado scored seven times before it made six outs. The Rockies' offense, which leads the National League in runs scored, is a threat to any pitcher.

DENVER - The Phillies will have played for 24 days when Cole Hamels throws his first pitch Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. That, in all likelihood, is the return date for Hamels. It will mark the franchise's longest period without its homegrown ace since 2007. They crave his presence. "It's pretty much right on schedule when you think about it," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. There is still some internal debate whether to start Hamels on Tuesday or Wednesday, but Sandberg believed Wednesday was best because that order places A.J. Burnett between Cliff Lee and Hamels, his two lefthanded starters.

PHILLIES NOTES

Saves have varying degrees of difficulty, and this one, considering all the circumstances, was the equivalent of a reverse three-and-half somersault with one-and-a-half twists off a three-meter springboard. The Phillies had already lost the first two games of the series with the first-place Atlanta Braves in disheartening fashion. They blew a ninth-inning lead Monday and wasted a complete-game, 13-strikeout gem from Cliff Lee Wednesday. Lose again and they'd slip to five games behind the Braves in the National League East.

After being forced to leave his previous start because of a hernia-related injury, A.J. Burnett knew he had to be careful during his next bullpen session, making sure he didn't overstride and do any more damage. The veteran righthander tried a shorter stride and it worked. He employed the revamped move Thursday against the Atlanta Braves and it led to his best outing as a Phillie. Burnett kept the Braves off the scoreboard, allowing three hits over seven innings. Although he didn't figure in the decision at Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies picked up a 1-0 victory on Ben Revere's RBI single in the eighth, he played a key role as his team took its lone win over the NL East leaders in this series.
