Final: Phillies 3, Giants 4.
WP: Javier Lopez (1-0, 3.24 ERA) LP: Antonio Bastardo (1-1, 1.69 ERA)
Trailing 3-1 in the top of the ninth inning, the Phillies refused to give up, having already won the first two games of the series, and get ready to travel to Arizona to face the Diamondbacks. With Sergio Romo on the mound for San Francisco, Jimmy Rollins started the inning off right with a double to deep right field. Kevin Frandsen followed by fouling out, allowing Rollins to advance to third base. After Michael Young walked to put runners on the corners, Chase Utley singled-home Rollins to shrink their deficit to just one run. With Michael Young now on third base, Delmon Young hit a sacrifice fly RBI to right fielder Hunter Pence, tying the game at three runs a piece.
Jonathan Pettibone made his fourth career start this afternoon. He lasted five and two-thirds innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and four walks. One of his earned runs allowed was a home run to former Phillie, Hunter Pence, in the bottom of the second inning.
Barry Zito was extremely effective for the Giants today, going a solid seven-strong innings, allowing just one run on four hits and no walks. He allowed a home run to 1B Kevin Frandsen in the top of the fourth inning, Frandsen's first of the season.
Despite the late-rally for the Phils, the bullpen couldn't hold down the fort in extras as lefty Antonio Bastardo in the bottom of the tenth allowed the Giants' winning run to come home on an Andres Torres RBI single to right field.
Cole Hamels starts tomorrow evening in Arizona, as he looks to get back on the right-track and improve his rather disappointing 1-4 overall record. First pitch is set for 9:40 pm ET.
