BOOM! Ryan Howard hits a grand slam in the 10th inning to give the Phillies a 10-6 win over the Braves. I am not making this up. Pretty exciting baseball. Game story and an On Baseball column that focuses on Howard. Too bad the Astros keep playing patsies and staying in the wild-card lead. With only 10 games to go, "Every game is an end-of-the-world game at this point," says Billy Wagner. The hope continues this afternoon with another game against the Braves. Any other cynics like me now admitting the team's deserves more respect?
