LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Chace Numata rose from his crouch and approached the mound at FirstEnergy Park. There is little a 21-year-old catcher can say to one of the best pitchers of this generation, yet Numata tried. He patted Roy Halladay on the lower back. Halladay threw eight straight balls in the fourth inning of a dull rehab start with single-A Lakewood. He resembled the drained pitcher seen earlier in 2013, before a surgeon cut into his right shoulder. That was three months ago. Halladay could not command his arsenal.

Phillies righthander Curt Schilling pitched five shutout innings yesterday at Jack Murphy Stadium. The fact that the stands were empty, of course, means little here. But the fact the batting cage was up and the lineup Schilling faced consisted solely of Randy Ready and Tony Longmire confirmed that, yes, it was only a simulated game. Only a simulated game. And, in its own way, the biggest game Schilling had pitched since his electrifying performance in Game 5 of the 1993 World Series.

Phillies righthander Vicente Padilla had been scheduled to return to the Phillies rotation on Friday in Boston. If everything went well last night in Moosic, Pa., that is. It appears it didn't. Padilla, who has been on the disabled list since May 30 with tendinitis in his right biceps, made a rehab start for triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but left the game after just 33 pitches with elbow soreness. He will be evaluated today. There was no other information available, and it was not clear how the soreness might affect his return.

Phoenix Suns forward Charles Barkley said critics of his summer work ethic are off base and there is no reason for him to apologize for having some fun while spending the offseason in Philadelphia. Barkley, who thought about retiring all of last season because of chronic back trouble, said he worked hard in the offseason, but also had some fun. "I didn't neglect my rehab," Barkley said yesterday. "I told them I was going to Philadelphia and do it, and that was the final decision.

At first it seemed like a great way to promote low- and moderate-income housing: Float millions of dollars in bonds, use the money to make low-interest loans to small private developers and community non-profit groups, then make sure they keep the rents low, from $250 to $350 for a two-bedroom apartment. The goal: to rehab 1,000 properties of one to four units within three years. But 14 months later the official in charge of the Redevelopment Authority's $35 million Small Rental Properties Program admits, "I had no idea it was so complicated.

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 - Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said he will decide "a series at a time" whether Ryan Howard is in his lineup against lefthanded pitchers. The only two games the struggling first baseman has not started were against southpaws. As he did Friday against Washington's Gio Gonzalez, Darin Ruf started in Howard's place Wednesday against Mets lefthander Jonathon Niese. Rightfielder Jeff Francoeur occupied Howard's cleanup spot. In 27 at-bats entering the game, Howard had just four hits (.148)

ALLENTOWN – After consecutive seasons lost to elbow operations, righthander Chad Billingsley wasn't too worried about the two home runs surrendered in his first rehab start for the Phillies triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs Friday at Coca-Cola Park. A one-time all-star with an 81-61 record and 3.65 ERA with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Billingsley signed with the Phillies as a free agent in the offseason, looking to rebound from Tommy John surgery in 2013 and then surgery last June to repair his right flexor tendon.

ALLENTOWN - Having seen little action in the past 2 years, Chad Billingsley found himself in an unfamiliar position in more ways than one last night. Yet, he is keeping everything in perspective, including his timetable to get to Citizens Bank Park. "I haven't pitched under the lights in a while," said Billingsley, who made his first rehab start with the Triple A Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Coca-Cola Park. "In my rehab starts, I was always pitching during the day. "Overall, I was happy with it. My curveball was good and my fastball was loose.

After struggling in his season debut Wednesday, setup man Ken Giles stressed to Ryne Sandberg that it was a mechanical issue that plagued him, the Phillies manager said. The 24-year-old righthander has been adamant that the back tightness he felt late in spring training no longer ails him. "It could be early- season rust or problems. It could be cold weather. It's hard to tell," Sandberg said Thursday. "A power pitcher like him, we'll see, maybe it will take him a little bit longer to really get fine-tuned and to where he wants to be with the velocity and with the mechanics.

When it comes to redeveloping the magnificent site long occupied by Bancroft, a residential special-needs school, Haddonfield always knows what it doesn't want. "JUST SAY NO," a typical online post urged in 2010, as the borough planning board was considering a retirement-community proposal for the 19-acre Kings Highway property. Fierce public opposition scuttled that idea, and in 2013, a bitter grassroots battle ended with voters rejecting the Haddonfield Board of Education's $12.5 million proposal to buy the tract for public use. Bancroft has considered leaving the borough for a decade.

Robert Kersey Jr., who rose from being a janitor to buying, rehabilitating and selling properties throughout Philadelphia, died March 18. He was 76. Robert was the second of three children born to Robert Kersey Sr. and Lavinia Kersey.

They came with paint brushes, steel wool, and brawn. But what really got to Robert Sheppard - what made him cry in front of his wife for the first time in almost never - had to be the love. A dozen Samaritans soldiered into Sheppard's Oxford Circle rowhouse Sunday and attacked the shabby abode with fixer-upper resolve. Sheppard and his wife were barely making it in blue-collar retirement; the workers hoped this kindness would help. The 82-year-old Korean War veteran watched the workers and smiled, even while drawing breath from the oxygen tank that has made him feel less and less like the man he once was. He cracked jokes about the Eagles, about the time he ruined his knees by falling two decks on a Navy ship, and how the family never really took vacations and that was all right.

It's not officially over for Cliff Lee. All he needs is a miracle, and he could be back throwing on a mound near you before the end of the summer. Even he concedes that is unlikely. "It's fairly likely it will remain the same," the Phillies lefthander said Monday at Bright House Field after the team placed him on the 60-day disabled list and announced that he will attempt a third rehab of his aching left elbow. Surgery has been recommended, but that would end Lee's season and tenure with the Phillies.
