Still chasing his dream to return to the big leagues, Ryan Howard got to dust off the home run trot so many Phillies fans grew to love during his time punishing pitchers in Citizens Bank Park.
Howard hit a walk-off homer for the Albuquerque Isotopes in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday. It was his third home run with the Isotopes, the Colorado Rockies’ triple-A affiliate.
