Phillies Three For All

Three quick things to digest as the Phils ready for their third consecutive day game:

♦ The last four fair balls that Ryan Howard has hit have all gone to left or left-center field.

♦ Opponents are batting 100 points higher in the first four innings against Roy Halladay this season (.276) than they do in innings 5 through 8 (.176).

♦ In 10 games since July 10, Michael Martinez is hitting .325 (13-40) with seven runs, 11 RBI and a slugging percentage of .500.
