Myers struggles
Photos
Braves 10, Phillies 4
After the tough start on Wednesday, Brett Myers saw his ERA rise to 4.55. (Drew Hallowell/Getty)
Ryan Howard continued his MVP push with his 47th homer, a solo shot in the fourth, but Brett Myers struggled, and it cost Philly the game. The Phils' lead over the Mets remained at 1 1/2 games with New York falling to Chicago and the magic number stayed at four.
