Howard Sets Postseason RBI Record
Ryan Howard‘s seventh consecutive postseason game with a RBI broke a tie with Ivan Rodriguez (Marlins, 2003), Bernie Williams (Yankees, 1996) and Carlton Fisk (Red Sox, 1975) for the longest streak in a single postseason. Howard is one game shy of the all-time mark of eight held by Lou Gehrig (1928-32), set over multiple postseasons with the Yankees.
Howard currently is tied with Moose Skowron (Yankees, 1958-60) and Clyde Barnhart (Pirates, 1925-27) on the all-time list.
Howard tripled in the first inning tonight in Game 3 of the NLCS to score Shane Victorino and Chase Utley to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead.
