Placido Polanco, Ryan Howard Set Philadelphia Phillies Franchise Records
In an explosive day for the offense, the Philadelphia Phillies had two players set franchise records.
With his two-run single in the seventh inning, Placido Polanco set an all-time Phillies record with 39 hits in April. And with his grand slam in the fifth inning, Ryan Howard set an all-time Phillies record with 27 RBIs in the month of April.
Polanco has been on fire all season, bringing a .389 batting average into the game, good for second-best in the National League. He has been a bright spot for a team that has really struggled to score runs this season.
Howard, in the first year of a five-year, $125 million contract extension, hit a two-run home run back in the fourth inning and a grand slam an inning later.
