Ryan Howard is back and the Philadelphia Phillies
are moving up.
Howard was three-for-four with a pair of two-run homers, Greg
Dobbs added another two-run shot and the Phillies crushed the
Atlanta Braves 13-to-six to complete their first sweep of the
Howard and Dobbs hit two-run homers in the first before the
Phillies put the game away with seven runs in the fifth. Howard, who returned from the disabled list at the start of the
series and was hitting .200 at the start of the game, added another
two-run homer in the eighth.
The Braves have lost 10 of 14 to fall to 12-and-13 in May.
The Braves, in second place in the N-L East, are only two games
ahead of the third-place Phillies.
