Howard gives O’s taste of own medicine

The Orioles had bashed 12 home runs in 31 innings against the Phillies when Ryan Howard stepped into the batter’s box in the bottom of the sixth inning Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. He returned the favor when he hit a two-out, two-run home run to right field to give the Phillies the lead in a 2-1 victory.
