The Phillies flaunted some major power Sunday, bashing four two-run homers, in a 9-2 rout of the Cardinals.
Chase Utley’s (3-for-4) hit his 22nd longball of the season to give the Phils a 3-1 lead early. Ryan Howard made it 5-2 with a towering drive to dead-center field, and Raul Ibanez and Jimmy Rollins added the icing on the cake.
The Phils are 18-3 in their last 21 game and they have won five straight series at home.
Joe Blanton was masterful, pitching eight innings of two-run baseball.
