Phillies Can't Capitalize on Howard Double, Eggs Early

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.
