Howard Hits His Mark
Got some Ryan Howard tidbits for y’all:
- He hit his 10th career grand slam in a 10-3 victory tonight over the Mets.
- He hit a two-run homer, too. It was the 26th multi-homer game of his career.
- The grand slam was the 259th homer of his career, which ties Del Ennis on the franchise’s all-time list. Howard needs to hit 289 homers to catch Mike Schmidt. Oh, is that all?
- Howard set a franchise record with 27 RBIs in April. Pat Burrell had the previous record with 24 RBIs in April 2008.
- Howard had six RBIs. It’s the fourth time in his career he has had six or more RBIs in a game. He had a career-high seven on June 20, 2006, against the Yankees.
