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 hit.

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.
