PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Howard homered and scored the go-ahead run on an overturned call in the Philadelphia Phillies' 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday. With the score 2-2 in the sixth, Marlon Byrd popped up to short right field.

Umpire Dale Scott signaled out, but after a review, Howard was ruled safe because Montero blocked the plate before he grabbed the throw.
