    24 Jul 2014 | 2:58 am
    2008, when the Phillies won the World Series, now feels like a long time ago. 2006, when Ryan Howard won an MVP award, feels even longer. Certainly, Howard no longer seems to be the player he was then. He sat out Wednesday’s game, and team officials are now apparently considering eating his hefty contract and releasing the once-feared slugger. CSN Philly reports: Multiple sources say the team has also discussed moving on without Howard. The team has floated his name in trade talks but Howard is owed the remainder of $25 million for this season and $60 million over the next two seasons.

    San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is a bundle of energy every time he's on the field. On Wednesday night in Philadelphia — one of his former baseball homes — he perhaps had a little too much energy built up, and at one critical point during the game that led to a hilarious baserunning blunder. With the game scoreless in the eighth inning, Pence attempted to manufacture a scoring chance by stealing second base and moving into scoring position. The good news: he had a fantastic jump and beat the throw by Carlos Ruiz by plenty. The bad news: he slid right on past the safety of…

    It appears Ryan Howard will no longer be automatically penciled into the Philadelphia Phillies' lineup. No player has homered more off San Francisco Giants veteran Tim Hudson, who will start opposite Cole Hamels, but Howard hasn't gone deep at home in nearly two months and the stumbling Phillies are pointing toward a youth movement. Hunter Pence delivered a bases-clearing double off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning to give San Francisco a 3-1 victory. The Giants (57-44) have won six of seven to take a two-game lead atop the NL West and now seek their first four-game sweep since 2012.

Pence drove in all of San Francisco's runs with a double in the ninth and Madison Bumgarner pitched eight scoreless innings to lead the Giants to a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. ''Just go up to compete, try to see the ball and hit the ball,'' Pence said. Bumgarner (12-7) gave up five hits while striking out six and walking none in a pitchers' duel with A.J. Burnett.
