WASHINGTON - The lineup posted Friday afternoon in the hallway of the visiting clubhouse at Nationals Park looked nearly identical to the lineup posted 24 hours earlier. The only difference was the starting pitcher. Jeff Francoeur was slotted again in the fourth spot and fellow righthanded-hitting corner outfielder Darin Ruf was in the eighth spot again. Chase Utley maintained his position in the three-hole, while recently demoted Ryan Howard returned to the seventh spot for the second straight day. "I like the balance of it," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Thursday night.

WASHINGTON - Four batters after Chase Utley took his first hacks, the Phillies' highest-paid position player stepped into the Nationals Park batter's box. It was the second inning. There were two outs. The 10th game of the season presented a new reality for Ryan Howard, No. 7 hitter in manager Ryne Sandberg's lineup. The beleaguered first baseman through 27 at-bats had struggled to connect on a barrage of fastballs, the same pitches he used to feast on as one of baseball's elite power hitters.

Two parallel government agencies - both designed to help unemployed Philadelphians get jobs - have been integrated into one, with the first job search center holding reopening ceremonies Thursday morning. "We should be able to provide seamless service," said Mark Edwards, president and chief executive of Philadelphia Works, speaking at the opening of the newly organized CareerLink office in Center City. Philadelphia Works, the funnel for national, state, and city workforce dollars, oversees the job search centers.

Your obedient Gizmo Guy falls asleep during deep discussions of business-to-business software, search engine optimization, and other "important" but arcane tech affairs. His eyes perked up with pleasure, though, to see how Philly Tech Week is kicking off its fifth annual fete on Friday with a full day (into evening) geared to the marriage of Tech and Culture. That is, to discussions of devices and support systems used to make, entertain, and enlighten. Essentially, the fun-and-games side of tech that works both sides of the brain.

WASHINGTON - Domonic Brown is set to take the next step in his rehabilitation from left Achilles tendinitis. The rightfielder is scheduled to join triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday in Buffalo, where he will work to get his timing down against upper-level pitching before rejoining the Phillies. On Thursday night, Brown started in right field and batted third for high-A Clearwater. It was his sixth game with the Threshers and he played nine innings Wednesday for the first time. He entered Thursday 4 for 14 with one home run, two RBIs, five strikeouts, and one walk.

NEW YORK - If you are looking for positives, there were a couple. Odubel Herrera, the dreadlocked Rule 5 draft pick who has spent the last couple of nights at the top of the order, tallied three extra-base hits. Cody Asche, the second-year starter at third base, continued his torrid start to the season by reaching base in all four of his plate appearances. The negatives included just about everything else, most of all the fact that Asche and Herrera combined to score only one run, thanks to a 2-for-16 showing with runners in scoring position.

After a "national search," Pennsylvania's underfunded Public School Employees' Retirement System , based in Harrisburg, said Wednesday that it has offered its top job to a candidate from close to home: State Rep. Glen R. Grell (R., Cumberland). Grell's predecessor, Jeffrey Clay , who retired a year ago, was paid $237,000 a year, which would be a big raise over the $86,000 Grell earned as a state representative. He is "still negotiating" his pay with PSERS, spokeswoman Evelyn T. Williams told me. In a statement, Grell said he would miss representing his Harrisburg-area district, and thanked the PSERS trustees who selected him. The trustees - aides to the governor, teacher and school board representatives, and lawmakers - are familiar faces to Grell because he was a member of the board until January, when he was replaced by state House leaders with Rep. Stephen Bloom , also a Cumberland County Republican.

NEW YORK - Just this past weekend, the Phillies reached a game over .500 for the first time in 11 months. They haven't won since. The Mets' 6-1 win Wednesday night at Citi Field made the Phillies victims of their first sweep of the young season. A failure to capitalize on a bevy of opportunities with runners on base doomed the offensively challenged club. The Phillies (3-6) were a woeful 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position on Wednesday, 3 for 27 in the series. They left 11 runners on base in the finale.

JAELEN STRONG, the wide receiver from Philadelphia's West Catholic High and Arizona State who has been projected as a possible first-round pick when the NFL draft gets underway, confirmed an NFL Network report that said he would go to Indianapolis this weekend, where teams are doing medical rechecks on injured players. The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Strong has a broken bone in his wrist that likely will need surgery "at some point. " Strong subsequently told the Daily News he will not need surgery, and that he anticipates missing no time this spring for whatever team drafts him. Strong said he wasn't sure what teams want to see him in the recheck this weekend.
