 PHILADELPHIA (AP) - For Ryan Howard, the pain became too much.
The Philadelphia Phillies put their slugging first baseman on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of inflammation in his left knee.
``It was just really hard to move, really felt stiff,'' Howard said Sunday after Philadelphia's 7-3 win over Atlanta. ``I knew I wouldn't be able to do it. It was more sore than it would normally be.''
Howard is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday.
``It's tough because I definitely want to be out there. But at the same time I want to be smart about it,'' he said.
The three-time All-Star is hitting .266 with 11 homers and 43 RBIs. He said he continued to play through the pain because he thought he could perform.
``I felt I still could go out and play and try to give it a go,'' he said.
