ST. LOUIS — A road trip that started with promise for the Phillies back in Florida last week is coming to a frustrating conclusion after two straight losses in Atlanta and another one in St. Louis on Monday night. Left-hander Cliff Lee walked a career-high six in 6 1/3 innings, and the Cardinals took advantage in handing the Phillies their third consecutive defeat, a 3-1 loss at Busch Stadium.
May 17 Camden Courier-Post:
“It’s been 21 days since Roy Oswalt last faced big-league hitters, and the right-hander isn’t quite sure what to expect when he pitches tonight against the Cardinals. “I haven’t thrown in a while,” he said. “Thursday’s (rehab start) was the first time I threw against hitters for two weeks. It should be interesting.”

“Chase Utley has had more than 30 at-bats in the minors during his rehab for patellar tendinitis in his right knee, has played in the field on back-to-back days twice, and has experienced no setbacks. But he will not be with the Phillies when the team begins a nine-game homestand Wednesday.
