Before the Phillies would rally Monday to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers, 7-6, Charlie Manuel was discussing what he could envision as "a light at the end of a tunnel."

Though the Phillies remain in last place, that light is a bit less faint. For not only did they win in their final at-bat for the second time in as many days, but franchise pillars Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hit back-to-back home runs.

“I think every day we play we get more and more into the fact of where we are and where we are going,” Manuel said before the game. “And I am very optimistic about it and really looking forward to seeing how we react and how we can do things.”
Utley and Howard back. Roy Halladay, back, even if not fully himself ... at least not yet. Late rallies. Wins.
Check out the complete Phillies coverage in the Daily Times Tuesday, and as always, on, where there are four fresh Phillies videos.
