Back in time
San Francisco's Aaron Rowand dives back safely to second as St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Ryan Theriot dives for the ball thrown by catcher Yadier Molina in the fifth inning. Rowand would advance to third on a walk but get no further, though he did score once in the 7-3 victory on the road.

That one hurt

You need to talk to the batters

Not feelin' too Wells

Proof is in the leather

We've met before, right?
Longtime Phillies teammates Jimmy Rollins (left) and Chase Utley collide in the fifth inning, allowing a pop up to fall and leading to an unearned run. The Phils eventually lost their 2-0 lead, but rallied against the Mets' bullpen for a 6-4 win.

He's in there
