National League Game Summary - Arizona at Philadelphia



(Friday, July 25)

Final Score: Philadelphia 9, Arizona 5

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Domonic Brown hit a two-run homer, drove in three runs and crossed the plate twice to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-5, in the opener of a three-game series on Friday.

Grady Sizemore went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one RBI and two runs scored for the Phillies, who are now 15-4 at home against the Diamondbacks since 2008.

"Some big offense, up and down the lineup. Sizemore was very good against the left-handed pitcher with his three hits," said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg.

Alfredo Marte entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth and hit the first home run of his career, a two-out grand slam that brought the Diamondbacks back into the game after being down 6-0.

Kyle Kendrick (5-10), who was 0-2 in his last two starts, threw 5 2/3 innings in the win, striking out five and surrendering three runs on six hits and a walk.

Diamondbacks starter Wade Miley (6-7) gave up six runs -- five earned -- eight hits and walked three, while also striking out six.

"I just couldn't command the ball," Miley said. "No feel for the fastball at all. Breaking ball wasn't very good either."

Kendrick got in trouble early. After Aaron Hill doubled to left and Paul Goldschmidt hit an infield single, Kendrick hit Miguel Montero to load the bases. He was able to get out of the jam, however, getting Mark Trumbo to strike out and Martin Prado to line out.

The Phillies were more successful in their half of the first. With the bases loaded, Miley walked Carlos Ruiz to score Sizemore and a ground out by Brown put Chase Utley across.

Utley extended the Phillies' lead to three in the second. Sizemore doubled then stole third and Utley hit a line drive to left that sent him home.

The runs kept coming for the Phillies in the third. Ruiz was hit by a pitch and Brown doubled. After a Darin Ruf sacrifice fly scored Ruiz and moved Brown to third, Cody Asche plated Brown with a single to right.

Miley's troubles continued in the fifth. After Ruf hit a double, Miley fielded a soft ground ball by Asche, but made an errant throw past Goldschmidt at first, allowing Ruf to score.

Down by six runs, the Diamondbacks loaded the bases again in the sixth. Antonio Bastardo relieved Kendrick on the mound and the Diamondbacks countered, bringing in Marte to pinch-hit. The move paid off as Marte sent one over the wall in left field to clear the bases.

Arizona loaded the bases for the third time in the seventh, but Justin De Fratus struck out Montero and Trumbo to end the inning.

The Phillies stretched their lead to four with two runs in the next half inning. After Marlon Byrd doubled to left, Brown hit the first pitch he saw deep to right for a home run.

Sizemore put the Phillies up 9-4 in the eighth. Andres Blanco led off with a double and Sizemore hit a double of his own to put Blanco across the plate.

Arizona scored one run in the ninth on a double by Goldschmidt.
