ARLINGTON, Texas -- Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hit 400-foot
homers in the third inning and the Philadelphia Phillies held on
for an 8-6 victory over the Texas Rangers on a rainy Saturday
After Utley hit a 418-foot shot into the Rangers' bullpen in
right-center field and Pat Burrell drew a walk, Howard hit a blast
that landed in the second deck of seats above the bullpen for a 6-2
Both homers came off Vicente Padilla (10-4), who was denied by
his former team of matching the American League lead for victories.
