Ryan Howard is King; Phils Frustrate

Sep 1, 2006, 12:39 AM EDT

Ryan Howard passed Mike Schmidt in style last night by hitting an absolute BOMB to center at RFK for his 49th home run of the season.  The center fielder never even moved.

As for the rest of the game.. Wow.  Rhodes blew a save in the 9th.  Fultz blew another save in the 10th but this time the Nats won the game.  It was a horrible ending.  Lieberthal had trouble with a ball in the dirt and former Phillie Marlon Anderson scored from third.


It’s going to be a long weekend with the double header on Saturday with the Braves.  We really could have used a sweep in D.C.

The Padres, who are now a full game up on Philly for the wild card, went out and acquired David Wells from Boston for a minor league player.  This move could really help the Padres in their race against the Phils and the rest of the pack.
