Ryan Howard’s batting average so far this season has been on the low side, but after romping the Red Sox with his four RBI’s and two homers that average has spiked up a bit.
Howard hit a two-run homer in the first inning after Jimmy Rollins lead off the inning with a solo-shot and hit his second homer, solo-shot, in the third inning as the Phillies won 8-2.
The score might look gruesome but Boston actually had a chance in this one before Mike Timlin gave up four runs busting the game open when the Sox were trailing 4-2 before Timlin came in the game.
Goat of the Game: Timlin
I do not even want to discuss it.
