Ryan Howard crushed a solo homer to center field in the third inning tonight against the Braves to hand the Phillies a 2-0 lead.

Howard has a seven-game hitting streak in which he is hitting .286 (8 for 28) with a double, triple, three home runs and six RBIs. His first two homers in that streak went to left field, which is something he often did when he won the NL MVP in 2006. Howard hit 58 homers that season, with 28 of them going to the opposite field to lead the majors.

It's too early to say he's out of his slump.

But it's certainly a step in the right direction.
