Howard strikes out for MLB record-tying 195th time

WASHINGTON -- Philadelphia Phillies first baseman
Ryan Howard struck out Sunday for the 195th time this season to tie the
major league record.

In the fourth inning against the Washington Nationals, Howard
swung at and missed an 81 mph pitch from starter Joel Hanrahan for
strike three.

Howard matched the mark established in 2004 by Adam Dunn of the
Cincinnati Reds.

Last season's NL MVP, Howard entered Sunday with 42 homers and
125 RBIs.
