Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Joaquin Arias drove in the game-winning run in the ninth inning as the San Francisco Giants rallied for a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies to wrap up a three-game series.
Following an amazing start from Cole Hamels, Jonathan Papelbon (2-1) came on to close the game and immediately gave up a single to Hunter Pence. Brett Pill then punched a base hit to right to put runners on the corners, and Roger Kieschnick easily tied the game with a pinch-hit single to right. Arias then drove in the winner with a single to left.
It wasn't easy for the Giants, though, as Sergio Romo had trouble of his own closing the game out in the bottom of the inning.
Delmon Young reached base on an Arias error, and Cody Asche followed with a bunt back to the mound that Romo fielded, but slipped as he tried to make a throw. John Mayberry then squared to bunt, but was hit by a pitch to load the bases with no outs.
However, Romo got Laynce Nix to fly out to shallow right, and Carlos Ruiz to fly out to shallow left, before Erik Kratz hit a grounder to third that saw a force out at second to end the game and give Romo his 25th save of the season.
