Utley, Howard homer as Phillies top Rangers

Jun 29, 2008 - 3:04 AM ARLINGTON, Texas (Ticker) -- Chase Utley and Ryan Howard each homered and the Philadelphia Phillies held on for an 8-6 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

Utley, who entered the contest with a .197 average (15-for-76) and one home run in the last 20 games, finished 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles. His 23rd home run of the season ties him with Florida's Dan Uggla for the major league home run lead.

Cole Hamels (8-5) picked up the win for the Phillies, striking out eight while allowing four runs and six hits in seven frames.

Trailing 8-4 in the eighth, the Rangers pushed a pair of runs across and had the bases loaded before J.C. Romero struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia to end the threat.
