Ryan Howard put Philadelphia on the board with a fourth-inning single to score Freddy Galvis, and third baseman Cody Asche later put the Phillies ahead with a sacrifice fly.
"He did a lot of good things on the field," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said of Howard, who went 2-for-2. "He showed some good movement on the field, some range on some plays. He did a good job on a high throw over there at first base. He really moved around really well on the field, and he had some at-bats [in which] he squared some balls up. I liked him going to left field, opening up the field."
Phillies Up Next: Philadelphia will make the short trip to George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., on Wednesday to play the Yankees in a game airing at 1:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV. Right-hander Kevin Slowey will start after right-hander Aaron Harang was scratched. Harang woke up the other morning with his back not feeling 100 percent, so the Phillies are playing it safe. Harang could make his first start on Monday against the Orioles in Sarasota, Fla.
