Howard homers as Phils top Rays

Feb 28, 2009 - 9:07 PM CLEARWATER, Florida (Ticker) -- Ryan Howard belted his first homer of the spring Saturday, powering the Philadelphia Phillies to a 12-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The teams were meeting for the first time since the Phillies disposed of the Rays in five games in last season's World Series.

Howard's two-run homer highlighted a five-run first inning for the Phillies, who won for the first time in three spring games.

John Mayberry and Ronny Paulino also homered for Philadelphia.

Kyle Kendrick, battling for a spot in Philadelphia's rotation, allowed one run and four hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Elliot Johnson and Ray Sadler homered for Tampa Bay.

Pat Burrell, who played his first eight seasons in Philadelphia before signing with Tampa Bay as a free agent, went 1-for-2.
