National League Game Summary - Arizona at Philadelphia



(Friday, August 23rd)

Final Score: Philadelphia 4, Arizona 3

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Chase Utley drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series.

Cody Asche smacked a pinch-hit single to right off of Heath Bell (4-2) to start the inning and Jimmy Rollins followed with a single to right to put runners at the corners. After Michael Young was issued a free pass, Kevin Frandsen struck out and Eury De La Rosa took over.

Utley worked the count full before taking a pitch inside for ball four and Asche trotted home for the win.

It was the third straight walk-off win for the Phillies as the team took the final two games of a four-game set against Colorado with a game-winning run in the ninth inning.

"Sometimes you don't see that in a month," said Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg about the walk-offs. "But this has been fun the past couple of days and it sounds like the fans have been enjoying it."

Darin Ruf hit a solo home run and Carlos Ruiz smoked a two-run double for the Phillies, who have won five of their last six games. Cole Hamels pitched seven innings in the start and gave up three runs on six hits with a walk and four strikeouts. Jonathan Papelbon (4-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win.

Martin Prado hit a two-run double and Matt Davidson added an RBI single for the Diamondbacks, who have lost four of their last five games. Wade Miley was charged with three runs on five hits over six innings in the start.

"I made some mistakes and just couldn't get the outs there when we needed them," said Miley. "That game was on me because I should have been able to get out of that sixth inning."

Ruf's two-out home run to center in the second, his 10th of the year, gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead.

Arizona went on top with three runs in the fourth inning. Adam Eaton was hit by a pitch to start the inning and Paul Goldschmidt followed with a double. Prado then doubled home two runs and Davidson scored him with a single to left for a 3-1 lead.

The Phils loaded the bases with one out in the sixth and Ruiz tied it with a double down the left field line. However, Ruf struck out and, after John Mayberry was issued a free pass, John McDonald looked at strike three to end the frame.
