But even baseballs most notorious hitters park hasnt been able to help the anemic Phillies find their stroke. The Phils lost their second straight game in the home park of the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night. Kyle Kendrick kept his club in the game, but the Phillies bat rack offered him no support in a 3-1 loss (see Instant Replay). The loss was the Phillies fourth in the last five games as they slipped into the basement of the National League East at 7-10.

DENVER — Colorado Rockies cleanup hitter Troy Tulowitzki used his patience first and then his power to help the Rockies wallop the Philadelphia Phillies 12-1 on Friday. Tulowitzki singled home a run in the sixth. The at-bat was the longest of Tulowitzki’s career. “You just keep on fouling away pitches and you try to get one you like,” Tulowitzki said.

Tim Hudson will turn 39 years old in July and was coming off a major injury when the San Francisco Giants took a chance and signed him to a multiyear contract in the offseason. Hudson takes the mound as the visiting Giants look to get their offense back on track Saturday night against the San Diego Padres. After his 2013 season ended in July with a fractured right ankle suffered while pitching for Atlanta, Hudson signed a two-year, $23 million contract with a San Francisco team looking to improve a pitching staff that finished near the bottom of the NL in ERA. He gave up four runs over 7 1-3 on Sunday before Brandon Crawford’s 10th-inning homer gave the Giants a 5-4 win over Colorado.

The Phillies salvaged the final game of their three-game series with the Braves to finish a nine-game homestand 4-5, and they now embark on a 10-game West Coast road trip through Colorado, Los Angeles and Arizona. Here are five notes to get you prepared for the Phils series opener against the Rockies at Coors Field (8:40 p.m./CSN): Before moving ahead to the Rockies, lets make note of all the history that took place in the Phils three-game series against Atlanta. Also on Monday, Braves reliever Luis Avilan became the first pitcher since Jack Knott of the 1934 St. Louis Browns to earn a win when allowing five or more earned runs and lasting no longer than one inning.

SAN DIEGO — After being no-hit over the first five innings, the Colorado Rockies broke through for three runs in the seventh inning against San Diego right-hander Ian Kennedy on Thursday afternoon to defeat the Padres 3-1 and gain a split of their four-game National League West series at Petco Park. Kennedy retired the first 12 Rockies he faced before walking shortstop Troy Tulowitzki to open the fifth. An inning later, Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado stopped Kennedy’s no-hit bid with a lead-off double that struck the third-base bag. In the seventh, however, the Rockies broke through to erase a 1-0 Padres lead.

Andrew Cashner appears ready for the national spotlight. With a few more performances like the ones he’s turned in this season, Cashner’s name will be well-known throughout baseball. Cashner gutted his way into the eighth inning and Chris Denorfia drove in two runs in the San Diego Padres’ 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. Cashner (2-1) wasn’t nearly as sharp as he was in his previous start when he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against Detroit on Friday before settling for a one-hitter with a career-best 11 strikeouts.

A few older closers are still making it work, but the promise of youth is too much to ignore, in your pens, and in your lineups.

Pitcher Juan Nicasio dug down and gave the Colorado Rockies exactly what they needed. After a rough first inning, Nicasio settled in and threw six solid innings to help save a depleted bullpen as the Rockies got a rare road win with a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. With set-up reliever Rex Brothers sitting for a couple of days after two consecutive rough outings, and the rest of the bullpen having been used often recently, Colorado hoped Nicasio could pitch deep on Tuesday night. The right-hander couldn’t have started much worse by allowing two runs in the first inning when the first four Padres each got a hit.

The Phillies are 6-7. The Phils look like a team capable of winning 85 to 88 games if the offense continues clicking and the bullpen figures things out. On Monday night, the Phils lost a heartbreaker, 9-6, after overcoming a four-run deficit in the eighth inning. But a day-night doubleheader on Thursday would create travel issues for the Phils, who depart for Colorado to start a 10-game West Coast road trip after finishing with the Braves.
