Probably just a matter of lefty/righty platoon as both games were against Pitt's LHPs -- they did that w/ Utley and Polanco earlier too. I see that he did get into the game after Redman left today.

Ummm... Yesterday, the Phillies faced yet another LHP (Lowry). I'm pretty sure that's why. He should play today against Tomko. In the future, just expect Howard to sit against most LHPs until you see (or hear) otherwise.
