The Phillies used four home runs and at-the-ready long relief by Kyle Kendrick, spotting an effective J.A. Happ, who was taken out as a precautionary measure, to dump the second-place Braves last night at Turner Field 9-4. Carlos Ruiz suffered a sprained wrist, and Ryan Howard, who homered twice, was plunked by a pitch and could be a game-time decision tonight. X-Rays were negative, but Chooch could be sidelined for a few games, at worst. As for Happ, he insisted nothing was too terribly wrong, but Charlie Manuel wasn't taking any chances, and I think that's the right call. The left-hander missed his last two starts with an oblique strain. We're back with game chat before the start of tonight's 7:10 first pitch.
