After another game-ending RBI, teams might think twice about intentionally walking Chase Utley to get to Ryan Howard. Raymond Felton Jersey . Howard singled with two outs in the ninth inning after pinch-hitter Marlon Byrd had a tying hit and the Philadelphia Phillies pulled out a 7-6 victory over the New York Mets on Sunday. "Youre not out of it until 27 outs," said Howard, who was mobbed by his teammates near first base after the hit. "It was a little hectic but, you know what? Ill take it." Utley singled, tripled, homered and drove in three runs for the Phillies, who snapped a five-game skid against the Mets. Lucas Duda and Travis dArnaud homered for New York. The Mets appeared positioned for their 12th victory in the last 13 games against the Phillies in Philadelphia before the ninth. Cody Asche led off with a double off Jenrry Mejia (5-5) and scored when Byrd lined a hit up the middle. Two outs later, Byrd stole second and, after getting the count to 3-2, the Mets intentionally walked Utley. Howard followed with a single to right on a full-count pitch. The beleaguered slugger, who recently was benched for three games, pointed skyward after rounding first before getting mobbed by his teammates near first base. "Thats big for his confidence," said Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg, who benched a slumping Howard for three days in late July. "Hes been in these situations before. Right guy in the right place." Ken Giles (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to cap four innings of scoreless relief by three Phillies bullpen arms. It was the second time in six games Howard faced the scenario. The Astros walked Utley for Howard on Tuesday and the Philadelphia slugger singled home the winning run in Philadelphias 2-1, 15-inning victory. "I wasnt surprised at all," Howard said. "The winning run on second base and I didnt have any hits. I still have great confidence. I feel real good about my swing." While Howard wasnt surprised, Mejia was. "I want to finish (against Utley) but Im not the manager," Mejia said. "I have to do whatever the manager wants me to do. A little bit surprised but I cant do anything. Terry Collins is the manager. Im just the player. I have to do whatever he wants me to do." Collins stood by his decision. "Im not going to let (Utley) beat me," he said. "Howards been struggling. Youve got to make him beat you. In my book, thats the way I look at it." Zack Wheeler allowed three runs on three hits in six innings. He is 4-0 with a 1.94 ERA in his last eight games. Kyle Kendrick extended his struggles this season. The right-hander was charged with six runs -- five earned -- on 10 hits in five innings. "He struggled with balls over the plate," Sandberg said. TRAINERS ROOM Phillies: Prized prospect Jesse Biddle makes his second start for Class-A Clearwater on Monday since being shut down for a mental break on June 23. The 2010 Phillies first-round pick tossed five no-hit innings to earn the victory in Clearwaters 4-0 win last Wednesday against Daytona. Mets: Rookie right-hander Regis deGrom will be evaluated in New York on Monday after experiencing shoulder soreness in the days following Thursdays start against Washington. DeGrom, who is 6-5 with a 2.87 ERA in 16 starts, will not make his scheduled start on Tuesday against the Nationals. ... Mejia revealed after the game that he has been struggling with a hernia problem for the last three weeks. "Doctors say if it bothers me too much to let him fix it, but I dont want to let him know because I want to keep pitching," Mejia said. UP NEXT The teams close out the four-game series at 1:05 p.m. Monday when Phillies right-hander David Buchanan (6-5, 4.39) faces New York lefty Jonathon Niese (5-8, 3.51). Buchanan is filling in for injured lefty Cliff Lee, who is out for the season with an elbow strain. Niese has lost four straight games. EXCELLENT EDGIN Mets left-handed reliever Josh Edgin struck out all four batters he faced. Edgin is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA with 19 strikeouts and three walks in 22 innings. "Hes done a nice job," Collins said. "He got us to the ninth inning with the lead, which is what you want." BROWNS MISCUE After David Wright opened the third with a single and Duda flew out, dArnaud lifted a medium fly to left field that Brown appeared to pull up on too soon. Fans booed the left fielder, who has experienced offensive and defensive troubles this season. "It appeared to be catchable," Sandberg said. Doug McDermott Jersey . -- Golden State Warrior la tantouses reserve centre Ognjen Kuzmic is expected to miss at least six weeks after undergoing surgery on his fractured right hand. Patrick Patterson Jersey . About seven hours before facing Washington in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference second round series, team officials said the oft-injured Bynum would miss the rest of the playoffs and would not even be with the team for the rest of the post-season. http://www.authenticthunderauthority.com/customized-c-4/ . Some will say that Martin is too sensitive while others will say that it is part of the way football is in the locker room. But to have to absorb what was said to him for any rational and intelligent person is too much.HOMESTEAD, Fla. - It took Jimmie Johnson just 13 races into his rookie season with Hendrick Motorsports to prove to his team he was a rare talent. He had just won at Dover for his second victory in four weeks and was debriefing with crew chief Chad Knaus when he brought up a sensation he felt in the car that day that he was certain came from wind blowing through a gap in the grandstands. It was remarkable insight, Knaus said, from a driver who understands very little about the setup of a race car. "He can feel the car. He can be one with the car," Knaus said. "I know that sounds foolish, it sounds weird. But, seriously, go to a surfer and ask him about his surfboard. Go to a snowboarder and ask him about his snowboard. Go to a skier, ask him about his skis. "When theyre able to get in that position, and they feel the car, understand what the car is going to do, its pretty amazing. Jimmie can really do that. He feels whats going on." Knaus went so far as to claim Johnson does things in the car "most mortals cant." His resume supports that claim. Johnson continued his romp through the NASCAR record books Sunday night by winning his sixth championship in eight years. With only the mark of seven titles won by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt ahead of him, Johnson is making a solid case to be considered one of the best to ever climb into a race car. Its a debate he wants no part of, shrugging in his champagne-soaked firesuit Sunday night that those conversations can wait until after hes done racing. There are some who believe Johnson is a product of his environment, and he wins because he drives for mighty Hendrick Motorsports in a car prepared by Knaus, a crew chief so laser-focused on the No. 48 Chevrolet that its not always evident if he finds any joy in his job. Theres also an argument that Johnsons titles stem from the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format, which debuted in 2004 as a 10-race playoff. It replaced the decades-old system of crowning a champion based on an entire season, and Johnson reeled off five consecutive titles beginning with Year 3 of the Chase. Indeed, under the old scoring system, Johnson would not have won titles in 2007, 2008 or 2010. But thats not his problem. He raced under the rules at the time, on the same playing field as everyone else on the track — the same as Petty did during his heyday, and Earnhardt during his time. As far as Petty is concerned, the debate is pointless. "All I can say is Earnhardt did his thing in his time against his competition. I did mine against my competition, and hes doing his thing against his competition," Petty said. "We didnt compete with each other. He wasnt there to race against Richard Petty or Earnhardt, and we didnt have to race against Jimmie Johnson, either. "You cant compare. Its not apples and apples. Its apples and oranges." Petty is right, it is very difficult to compare. But Johnson has very much earned the right to be part of the conversation by winning his six titles faster than Petty and Earnhardt, by becoming the youngest driver at 38 to reach the mark, and by winning 30 more races (he has 66 total Cup wins) than any other driver in the last 111 years. Paul George Jersey. "I dont think he wants to try to prove it to anybody else, he just wants to prove it to himself," team owner Rick Hendrick said. "Ive never seen anyone that works any harder and is any more committed to his physical conditioning, from the way he eats at certain times of the year, when he gets into the Chase, the way he works out. "He doesnt have to run over people. He doesnt have to go out and brag about what hes done. He just shows up, does his job. Sooner or later people have to say, Youre the deal." Yet Johnson still fights a stereotype among many dieu-and-ball types who dont respect what hes done. The most recent slight came from retired NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb, who was asked on a Fox Sports program to rank Johnson against other athletes at the top of their game. McNabb dismissed the driver as "absolutely not an athlete" because "he sits in a car and he drives, that doesnt take being athletic." Fellow drivers from various series rallied to Johnsons defence, and NASCAR fans berated McNabb on social media. Johnson said very little on the topic, even after winning his championship. "Yes, I am an athlete, and so is every driver in one of these race cars," he smiled. Ironically, Fox Sports rival ESPN will have Johnson sit in as host Tuesday night for SportsCenter, an appearance being touted as "the first athlete to guest host." He deserves the nod, as his accomplishments rank as high as any other current athlete. Derek Jeter and Kobe Bryant have five team championships, which Johnson has now surpassed. Hes tied with Michael Jordan, who for two years has ribbed Johnson that he had one more ring than the driver. While Roger Federer won 16 Grand Slams in eight years, and Tiger Woods won seven majors in four years, Johnson has won all of NASCARs "crown jewels." Hes won two Daytona 500s, four Brickyard 400s, Coca-Cola 600s and All-Star races, and two Southern 500s. There are only five active tracks on the schedule where Johnson has yet to win, and one of them is Homestead, where hes traditionally playing it safe and trying to wrap up a championship. Knaus, who opined Sunday night that if not for midseason rule changes in 2012 the team "would have waxed the competition," believes the current crew hes assembled around Johnson has yet to reach its full potential. Johnson doesnt dare dream of what other goals he might accomplish or where hell rank when its all said and done. "Its not like me to think in that light. Its just not me," Johnson said. "I guess I need to open my mind to it because the numbers speak for themselves. I find myself in a touchy situation at times where my quiet approach can be looked at as arrogant or cocky, and that is the furthest thing from the truth in what Im trying to portray. "Im just trying to say the right things and keep my mind in the right space. I havent let a lot in, and its led to more success. Its kept my work ethic intact, kept me honest and humble. I like that about myself. I really, really do. I dont know if I want to open my mind and let it in, where I stand in the sports world. Its not time for that in my eyes."
