In short time back, Utley looking good at plate
NEW YORK -- So far so good for Chase Utley.

After missing most of the season because of chondromalacia in his left knee, Utley is hitting .273 (6-for-22) with two home runs, three RBIs, a .304 on-base percentage and a .545 slugging percentage in six games since rejoining the team last week.

"Things have gone probably as anticipated," Utley said following Wednesday's 9-2 victory over the Mets. "No worse than the first day, which is a good thing. It's all about trying to be as consistent as possible. Put a game plan together daily and try to execute it."

Utley's two-run homer in the seventh inning tied the game, 2-2.

"I feel better than I did last year," Utley said of the strength and condition of his legs.
