KEY MOMENT: Brian Wilson failed to complete a ninth inning in which he gave up three hits and allowed the Phillies to break a 3-3 stalemate. Wilson gave up a two-run double to Carlos Ruiz. His night ended when he hit Ryan Howard to load the bases. Wilson was replaced by Jamey Wright, who promptly gave up a two-run single to Marlon Byrd that increased the Phillies' lead to 7-3. ON THE MOUND : Dan Haren made another solid start and could have won his fourth game if not for a fifth-inning error by first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

Brian Wilson's not right and it's time to worry, baby. Everything seems a struggle for Wilson right now, and it was never more evident than Thursday night when he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning that led the Phillies to a 7-3 victory over the Dodgers before a sellout crowd of 51,699 at Dodger Stadium. Wilson hasn't looked like the Wilson who arrived late last season -- and was just short of a sensation, going 2-1 with a 0.66 earned-run average and 0.87 WHIP. He spent a 15-day stint on the disabled list with what the Dodgers called nerve irritation, but was really more for him to build up arm strength.

Ben Francisco led off the 12th inning with a home run against closer Kevin Gregg and Philadelphia defeated Chicago, 4-3, Tuesday despite getting only three hits. Jimmy Rollins hit a home run for the Phillies, who won for only the fourth time in 12 games and stayed 3 1/2 games ahead of second-place Florida in the National League East. The Cubs have lost five of six games. Francisco, acquired from Cleveland in the July 29 trade that included left-hander Cliff Lee, lined a 1-and-1 pitch from Gregg (4-4)

The snow in Colorado scrapped plans for Pedro Martinez's first postseason start in five years. Game 3 of the Philadelphia-Colorado playoff series was postponed a day because of weather Saturday better suited for cross-country skiing. That prompted a pitching switch by the Phillies, with left-hander J.A. Happ going to the mound Sunday instead of the 37-year-old Martinez. The Rockies are sticking with Jason Hammel. The Phillies holed up in their hotel Saturday with no plans of working out at the ballpark.

The Philadelphia Phillies confirmed Saturday that one of their players was involved in a confrontation with a fan following Thursday's game at Tampa Bay. The Phillies did not identify the player in their statement. The Rays also confirmed the incident but did not release details. The St. Petersburg Times reported on its website Saturday that Phillies reliever J.C. Romero grabbed and shoved Robert Eaton, 25, of New Port Richey, Fla., after the fan made two comments about steroids.

Cole Hamels took a perfect game into the sixth inning, masterfully using his changeup while matching a season high with 10 strikeouts and leading the Phillies to a 4-2 win over the Nationals on Thursday. Hamels (10-9) gave up one run and five hits in eight innings. He even chipped in with an opposite-field RBI single to help the NL East-leading Phillies win their fifth straight game. Brad Lidge got his 30th save in 40 chances. -- associated press

Familiar problems resurfaced Thursday for the Dodgers and their manager. Brian Wilson again didn't resemble the pitcher he was last season, as he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. There were problems aside from the continued instability of Wilson, who has already spent 15 days sidelined because of issues with his surgically repaired elbow. BOX SCORE: Philadelphia 7, Dodgers 3 The Dodgers made another costly error, this time in the form of a routine bouncer hitting first baseman Adrian Gonzalez's glove and dribbling into the outfield.

Zack Greinke looks pretty much the same whatever the situation. Whether his team is rolling or struggling, he's unruffled, not overly concerned. Which makes him a pretty good guy to send out to the mound when the Dodgers are scuffling. For the third time in this young season, Greinke followed a team loss by pitching them to victory the following night. This time he went seven-plus innings, striking out 11, to lead the Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Phillies on Wednesday night that snapped a two-game losing streak before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 40,776.

The Dodgers didn't make any errors behind Zack Greinke in their 5-2 victory Wednesday over the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium. This was significant, considering how the Dodgers have played defense in the first three-plus weeks of the regular season. They have been one of the worst defensive teams in baseball. They entered the day with 22 errors, the second-most among the 30 teams in the majors. Their fielding percentage of .974 was third-worst. “We have to get better,” Hanley Ramirez said.

There are worse ways to lose a game, not that any would make the Dodgers feel any better about the way they fell, 3-2, to the Philadelphia Phillies in 10 innings Tuesday. It wasn't looking like their sharpest performance of the year, but they had managed to scrape back to tie it and force their fifth extra-inning affair in 21 games. With one out in the 10th, Carlos Ruiz hit a high pop-up to shallow left field. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez retreated, left-fielder Carl Crawford moved in. And you can guess where this is going.

ON THE MOUND: Paul Maholm lasted only five innings and was charged with five runs (four earned) and eight hits. The Phillies blew open the game in the fifth inning, which included a two-run home run by Ryan Howard and a throwing error by Maholm that resulted in another run. Brandon League pitched two scoreless innings. Jose Dominguez also pitched two innings but gave up a two-run home run to Carlos Ruiz in the ninth inning. AT THE PLATE: Adrian Gonzalez extended his hitting streak to 16 games with an infield single in first inning.

There is this one little thing about your first-place Dodgers that probably should be noted. They are 12-8 overall -- or 7-1 against the woeful Arizona Diamondbacks and 5-7 against everyone else. Could they be a team whose first-place status has been built upon a favorable early schedule? They looked plenty beatable Monday in losing 7-0 to the Philadelphia Phillies before an announced Dodger Stadium crowd of 37,715. Of course, Cliff Lee had a little something to do with that.

The Diamondbacks' Mark Reynolds, who set the major league record with 204 strikeouts last season, fanned four times to reach 200 this season. at Atlanta 6, New York 5: The Braves scored twice against Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth inning, the winning run scoring on an error by first baseman Daniel Murphy.

The Philadelphia Phillies' most successful starting pitcher is likely to spend the postseason in the bullpen. That is a tribute to the depth of a rotation topped by Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee , and certainly no knock on the amazing season turned in by rookie right-hander Vance Worley . Worley had as many big league starts coming into the season — two — as Halladay had Cy Young Awards, which is one reason he started the year in the...
