MIAMI -- Just as the Philadelphia Phillies welcomed back Ryan Howard from injury, the team may have lost Chase Utley. Delmon Young homered and Howard added three hits and three RBIs to help carry the Phillies to a 7-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Utley was a late scratch with a rib injury suffered during batting practice. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said the second baseman would be evaluated on Wednesday. "When he took a swing, he kind of felt a burn, a pain, in his rib cage," Manuel said. Also before the game, Philadelphia placed catcher Carlos Ruiz (strained hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list. Young, meanwhile, had two hits to raise his average to .214 after returning from off-season ankle surgery. Howard returned to the lineup after missing the previous two games with a sore left knee. "We havent been scoring many runs and I havent been contributing like Im capable of," Young said. "Hopefully we can carry this over to tomorrow and the rest of this road trip because were going to need to score runs the rest of this road trip to win ballgames." Manuel said he glad to see Young "click" and homer for the second time this season. "We think Delmon can hit," Manuel said. "Hes 27-years-old, we definitely think he has a lot of baseball left in him. Its just a matter of him getting some at-bats and getting going." Howard said he felt good two days after getting a cortisone shot on his left knee. "It felt better. Ill just continue to try and build on it," Howard said. "I saw the ball pretty well and was able to get a couple of knocks off two lefties. Really, I was just focused on putting together good at-bats." Tyler Cloyd (1-0) allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings. He was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley (International League) earlier in the day. "Up here, Im definitely keeping the ball down more than I did at Triple-A," Cloyd said. "I think I try to do too much down there and get out of my game at certain times." Miamis Jose Fernandez went five innings, allowing one run and five hits. He walked one and struck out two. "Every time I can go out there and give the team a chance to win and a chance to stay in the ball game, Im happy," Fernandez said. Philadelphia went ahead 2-1 in the sixth when Domonic Browns ground out scored Howard from third. Howard led off with a single and took third on Youngs double to deep centre off Duane Below (0-1). Howards single with the bases loaded scored two runs and highlighted a four-run seventh that gave the Phillies a 6-1 lead. He received a cortisone shot Sunday. Youngs ground out and Browns double scored the other Phillies runs in the seventh. Young homered to left-centre on a 2-2 pitch with one out in the fourth. It was his second home run of the season. Juan Pierres seventh-inning RBI single pulled Miami within 6-2. Howard added an RBI single in the eighth off Wade LeBlanc. Miamis Justin Ruggiano had a run-scoring double with two outs in the ninth. Pinch-hitter Jordan Browns sacrifice fly in the fifth scored Placido Polanco to tie it at 1 and take Fernandez off the hook.

Brent said he had "given a lot of thought" to his decision. His football career has been on hold since the Dec. 8 crash that killed Jerry Brown, a practice squad player, college teammate and close friend. "I am at a point where my main focus is all about getting the priorities in my life in order," Brent said in a statement provided by the team. "Those priorities are more important than football. Doing the right things in life are more important than football. I love the game very much. I love my teammates, but this is the right thing for me to do." Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter and faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted, though he could also get probation. Suburban Dallas police accused Brent of driving with a blood-alcohol content more than twice the legal limit the night of the crash. He has also tested positive twice for marijuana while out on bond, and was briefly jailed after the second test.dddddddddddd He is again out on bond, but under stricter conditions that include monitoring for drugs and alcohol, and is banned from driving. Owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett both said they supported Brents decision to focus on life outside of football instead of the game. Jones told reporters that Brents recent failed drug tests didnt affect his support of the player. "I promised Jerrys mother that we would support Josh in every way we could," Jones said. "Thats been our only thought since the accident is to support him and support our team in their support of him." The Cowboys at the end of last season put Brent on the reserve non-football injury list. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello indicated the league would not punish Brent now that he was stepping away from football. "With his retirement, there is no action for us to take at this point," Aiello said. One of Brents attorneys, George Milner, said the retirement has no effect on the criminal case. Prosecutors declined to comment. ' ' '
