Phillies 6, Brewers 3
Ryan Howard, who drove in three runs, leads the Major Leagues with 129 RBIs. (H. Rumph Jr./AP)
The Phillies jumped ahead on Ryan Howard's 43rd homer, a two-run jack in the first, and held on to trim the Brewers' NL Wild Card lead -- and the Mets' NL East lead -- to three games. Jamie Moyer notched his 14th win with 5 2/3 effective innings of three-run ball.
