Phils Win Game 1 vs. Cardinals
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Ryan Howard hit a huge home run, Roy Halladay overcame a shaky start and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 11-6 Saturday night in the opener of their NL division series.

Howard shook off his season-ending strikeout last October to hit a go-ahead shot in a five-run sixth inning.

Halladay retired the last 21 batters he faced as the NL East champions began their all-or-nothing postseason run with a comeback win.

Game 2 is Sunday night, with Cliff Lee pitching for Philadelphia against Chris Carpenter, who is starting on three days' rest.
