NEW YORK — Vince Velasquez struck out a career-high nine over six innings in his Philadelphia debut and Ryan Howard homered off Bartolo Colon as the Phillies picked up their first win of the season. Velasquez struggled through a 26-pitch first inning but retired Neil Walker on an inning-ending flyout with two on. New York didn't put two runners on in an inning after that.
