National League Game Summary - Colorado at Philadelphia



(Monday, August 19th)

Final Score: Philadelphia 5, Colorado 4

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - John Mayberry smacked a three-run homer in the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-4 win over the Colorado Rockies in opener of a four-game set.

Carlos Ruiz cracked a solo homer among his two hits for the Phillies, who have won two in a row on the heels of a 1-7 stretch.

Ethan Martin (2-2) struck out six and surrendered two runs on four hits and two walks over 6 1/3 innings. Jonathan Papelbon fired a scoreless ninth to notch his 21st save.

"Well pitched game other than a little struggles in the eighth," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Offensively we came up big in the fourth."

Jeff Manship (0-3) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk over five frames for Colorado, which has dropped three straight tilts.

The Phillies plated four runs in the fourth and added another in the fifth to jump to a sizeable margin.

Cody Asche had an RBI groundout in the fourth before Mayberry walloped his three-run shot into the seats in left. Ruiz belted a one-out solo shot in the fifth to make it 5-0.

"I felt good going into the fourth inning...so it was a little frustrating," Manship said. "I didn't do my job."

Colorado pushed across a pair of runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth to make it a game.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a leadoff homer and Todd Helton drilled an RBI ground-rule double in the seventh, while Wilin Rosario had a two-run single in the eighth to cut the deficit to 5-4.

But Papelbon worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to preserve the victory for Philly.

The Phillies were 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position, while Colorado finished 2-for-7 with RISP ... Tulowitzki's homer was his 21st of the year ... Both teams had seven hits ... Rosario has a 10-game hitting streak.
