Ryan Howard belted his 57th Homer in the third inning of the Phillies' 6-4 victory over the Houston Astros. The Phillies swept the Astros in their house.
Historically, the Astros have shut down the Phillies this time of the year ending their playoff hopes. The tables have turned this season. With two weeks to play in the regular season, the Phillies are in the hunt. Howard has a shot at MVP title and setting a "clean" seasonal home run record. If opposing teams respect him less and pitch to him, there is no doubt in my mind Howard will hit 62 or more homeruns before the regular season ends.
Ryan Howard, you are the man!
