Phillies 6, Astros 5

PHILADELPHIA — Ryan Howard's two-out grand slam capped a five-run rally in the eighth that lifted the Phillies. Carlos Ruiz opened the inning with a double and was immediately singled home by Cody Asche. Ben Revere and Jimmy Rollins singled to load the bases, and Howard sent a 3-and-2 pitch over the wall in center. Chris Carter hit two homers and drove in four for Houston, which lost its eighth straight in Philadelphia.
