Phils' Howard Hits 55th, 56th Home Runs

Sep 09, 2006 4:25 AM EST

The Marlins decided to pitch to Ryan Howard, and he made them pay. Twice.

Howard hit his 55th and 56th home runs, and Jamie Moyer pitched eight sharp innings to help the Phillies beat Florida 3-2 Friday night.

Howard hit a two-run drive in the sixth and a solo shot in the eighth for his seventh multihomer game this season. The first homer came on a 2-0 count with the Marlins leading 1-0, and the second came with one out.
