Howard, Ibanez Both Homer In Phils’ 13-6 Win
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) –– Ryan Howard and Raul Ibanez each homered and drove in three runs, while Shane Victorino had two hits and scored three times to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 13-6 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

The Phillies added five runs in the ninth.
Guthrie allowed four runs and six hits in four innings.
