Ryan Howard went 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 10-9 win over the Rockies.

The game was an absolute slugfest, and Howard provided plenty of punch. The first baseman hit a two-run homer in the third inning before legging out his first triple of the season in the sixth inning. He finished with three runs scored in the game. It was Howard's first four-hit game since July 30, 2011.

Jimmy Rollins went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Rollins' strong April continues, as he hit his third home run in the first inning of Sunday's game. It was the beginning of a long night for pitchers, as the two teams combined for 30 hits and 19 runs. Rollins drove in two of those runs and scored two more, giving him 10 runs scored and 13 RBI for the year.

Roberto Hernandez allowed six runs on nine hits over four innings of a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.

Hernandez had a 3.86 ERA going into the start and a 5.75 ERA afterwards. The best part of the day for Hernandez was the fact that the Phillies came back to win the game, saving the right-hander from taking his first loss. A matchup with the struggling Diamondbacks offense Friday could be the cure to what ails Hernandez.

Carlos Ruiz is not in the Phillies' lineup Sunday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Wil Nieves will catch Roberto Hernandez on Sunday.
Apr 20 - 12:18 PM

Kyle Kendrick let in three earned runs in seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Rockies.

D.J. LeMahieu got to Kendrick for an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning and Justin Morneau took him deep for a two-run shot in the bottom of the fourth. Kendrick is now 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 25 innings (four starts) this season. A dangerous road matchup against the Dodgers is next.

Cole Hamels (biceps) has been cleared to join the Phillies' rotation Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Hamels threw seven innings of one-run ball Thursday at High-A Clearwater, wrapping up his minor league rehab assignment with a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 17 total frames. The Dodgers present a tough first matchup, but Hamels should be a fantasy ace going forward.
Apr 19 - 5:29 PM

Phillies outfield prospect Carlos Tocci went 3-for-5 on Friday for Low-A Lakewood, bringing his season line up to .271/.271/.305.

It was Tocci's second consecutive three-hit night, and he has gone 11-for-19 over his past four games. Tocci has only hit two extra base hits in 2014 (both doubles), has yet to take a walk, and has struck out 14 times in 13 games. He is spending his second season in Lakewood, but he is the same age as many high school seniors.
Apr 19 - 12:08 PM

Phillies left-handed pitching prospect Jesse Biddle struck out 11 batters in 7 innings on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned), two hits, and one walk.

Biddle struggled in his first three starts in his return to Double-A but put together a solid outing. Biddle still looks on track to reach the majors later in 2014, but he may not make his debut until 2015 as the Phillies tendency to move prospects slowly could have an impact.
Apr 19 - 11:11 AM

Cody Asche went 1-for-3 with a single in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

Asche broke up Tyler Chatwood's no-hit bid with a two-out single in the fifth inning. It snapped a personal 0-for-16 hitless streak. The 23-year-old third baseman is hitting .195/.283/.317 through 15 games this season.
Apr 19 - 1:26 AM

Carlos Ruiz went 0-for-3 with a run scored Friday against the Rockies.

Ruiz reached base on an error by Nolan Arenado in the fifth inning and scored the only run of the evening for Philadelphia. The 35-year-old backstop owns a healthy .345 on-base percentage through 13 games, but he's hitting just .217 and has yet to drive in a run. Those in two-catcher mixed leagues can likely do better these days.

Phillies recalled RHP Shawn Camp from Triple-A Lehigh Valley

Camp takes the spot of Jonathan Pettibone on the active roster, who was demoted to Triple-A after a lousy start against the Rockies on Friday. The 38-year-old Camp appeared in five games in at Lehigh Valley, posting a 3.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 4/3 K/BB ratio in six innings. He'll work in middle relief.
Apr 19 - 12:12 AM

Phillies optioned RHP Jonathan Pettibone to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

This comes in the wake of Friday's disastrous start against the Rockies where he allowed eight runs on nine hits in his four innings of work. With Cole Hamels set to rejoin the rotation this week, Pettibone will continue to function as organizational depth in the minor leagues.
Apr 19 - 12:10 AM

Cole Hamels (biceps) tossed seven innings of one-run ball Thursday for High-A Clearwater in what is expected to be his final rehab start.

Hamels gave up just three hits, walked one and struck out two. The left-hander has posted a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio over his 17 rehab innings to this point, clearing the way for him to rejoin the Phillies' rotation early next week. Assuming the club keeps Hamels on schedule, he'll make his season debut on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.
Apr 18 - 10:19 AM

Ben Revere went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead RBI single in a 1-0 win over the Braves on Thursday.

Revere was hitless over his last 12 at-bats coming into Thursday's action. His RBI single off Alex Wood in the bottom of the eighth inning was the only offense the Phillies would need. The 25-year-old speedster is hitting .288 (15-for-52) through 14 games and is 5-for-6 in stolen base attempts.
Apr 17 - 3:54 PM

Jonathan Papelbon tossed a perfect ninth inning Thursday against the Braves for his fourth save of the season.

Papelbon, who showed some more oomph on his fastball, notched two strikeouts in the frame. He now has five straight scoreless appearances.
