The Phillies begin their first road series of the season against Colorado today, facing the team that defeated them in the 2007 National League Division Series. The two franchises have seen their fortunes turn since, as the Phillies won the World Series last year and the Rockies fell to 74-88.All Phillies regulars have gotten a hit, though leftfielder Raul Ibanez 's home run Wednesday remains the team's only homer. . . .

Chase Utley batted .409 against the Rockies last season and Pedro Feliz batted .458. More pitching depth. The Phillies signed righthanded pitcher Tyler Walker to a minor-league contract yesterday. He will report to the Phillies' extended spring-training program in Clearwater, Fla., this weekend. Walker, 32, went 5-8 with a 4.56 ERA in 65 games for the San Francisco Giants last season. He was signed as a free agent by the Seattle Mariners in January and released on March 29. High def.
