Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - After playing 24 innings in a Saturday
doubleheader split, the Phillies and White Sox decided extra baseball was in
order once more for the last game before the All-Star break.
John Mayberry's two-out, bases-loaded single plated Chase Utley with the
winning run, sending Philadelphia past Chicago, 4-3, in the rubber match of a
three-game interleague series.
David Purcey (0-1) allowed a leadoff double to Utley, then gave Jimmy Rollins
a free pass before a Domonic Brown groundout moved both into scoring position.
Darin Ruf also was walked intentionally to load the bases, bringing on Ramon
Troncoso, who fanned Delmon Young swinging before serving up the game-deciding
Antonio Bastardo (3-2) overcame an Utley fielding error to toss a scoreless
top of the 10th. Jonathan Papelbon entered the ninth with a 3-2 lead, but
allowed a game-tying hit to Josh Phegley.
It spoiled a solid outing from Cole Hamels, who allowed eight hits and two
runs with seven strikeouts in going eight full innings.
