Howard Is Back

Ryan HowardThat didn’t take long.

Ryan Howard received a cortisone injection into his left knee Sunday in Philadelphia, but he is back in the lineup tonight against the Marlins in Miami. A MRI exam Monday revealed inflammation and changes in his meniscus. The Phillies said yesterday they were hopeful Howard would respond positively to the shot, although they could not be certain it would.

The Phillies face Marlins rookie Jose Fernandez tonight. He has thrown 13 scoreless innings in two starts against the Phillies this season. Can the Phillies finally find a way to score against him tonight? If not, the sad sack Marlins will win just their second series of the season.

Here is tonight’s lineup:

  1. Jimmy Rollins, SS
  2. Chase Utley, 2B
  3. Michael Young, 3B
  4. Ryan Howard, 1B
  5. Delmon Young, RF
  6. Domonic Brown, LF
  7. Ben Revere, CF
  8. Erik Kratz, C
  9. Tyler Cloyd, P

Whew! Now he can get back to tearing it up this season with his bat!…Wait….What’s that? Oh yeah…..

Why is Ben Revere starting ? He truly is not a starting MLB player except on teams that have no other player to play the outfield. Also Howard just can’t get cortisone shot after cortisone shot.

So Howard and Revere both have 3 hit games and the Phils win easily.

And the Marlins win.

I need to ride Howard more often…he produces! LMAO

When was the last time Ryan got 3 RBIs on 3 singles in one game?……bizarre….
