Utley, Howard Power Phillies Past Giants
Chase Utley and Ryan Howard homered to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Tuesday night.
Utley had three hits and two RBIs, Howard reached base four times and Kyle Kendrick pitched seven strong innings to win his third consecutive decision. The right-hander extended his scoreless streak on the road to 25 innings before giving up a sacrifice fly to Angel Pagan in the third.
Philadelphia has won two straight against the World Series champions since two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay went on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. Halladay met with a specialist in Southern California earlier in the day.
