Howard Doesn’t Take Long

The last line of my previous post was directed towards Ryan Howard showing us what he is made of, and it sure didn’t take long for him to respond.  Howard blasted his first career grand slam late last night in L.A. giving the Phillies a great win.  It seems like it wasn’t a few days ago when I mentioned what the Phillies really needed was clutch hitting.  Then what do they do?  They go out two nights in a row and deliver big hits in big spots.
