Barry Bonds, the Sultan of Surly, didn't get closer to Babe Ruth's magical 714-homer total last night. Ryan Howard and Chase Utley did. Granted, Howard and Utley aren't anywhere near the Bambino, but they each hit two majestic home runs that would have made Bonds proud. Howard drilled two homers in a game for the second time in his young career. Utley did it for the eighth time - and third time this year. Together, they carried the Phillies to their sixth straight victory, an 8-3 triumph over Bonds' San Francisco Giants at Citizens Bank Park.
