Ryan Howard continued his string of hitting the ball the opposite way, only this time he hit it hard, going into the gap in left-center between Cody Ross and Pat Burrell. Ryan rolled into second with a double. A Jayson Werth strikeout and a Jimmy Rollins pop-up kept him there for Raul Ibanez. He ended up flying out to deep center, the third ball that’s gotten close to the wall off Lincecum today.
When you get a guy in scoring position off one of the best pitchers in the league, it often helps for him to score.
0-0 after two.
