Howard, Werth, Ransom power Phillies past D'Backs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - July 27, 2010 The two-time NL champion Phillies moved within 3½ games of East-leading Atlanta, cutting the deficit in half over the last five days. They've won nine in a row at home, their longest since winning 16 straight at Veterans Stadium in 1991.

David Herndon (1-2) allowed two runs - one earned - in one inning to record his first major league victory.

Mark Reynolds hit his 24th homer for the Diamondbacks, who have the third-worst record in the majors.
