SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Chase Utley was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the top of the 10th inning to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-3 on Friday night.
Ryan Howard followed with a sacrifice fly against Javier Lopez, and the Phillies snapped a three-game losing streak.
Cody Asche, who doubled off Santiago Casailla (1-3) to open the 10th, hit a two-run homer in the eighth to tie it. It was the first home run allowed by Jeremy Affeldt this season.
Ken Giles (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Jonathan Papelbon worked the 10th for his 28th save in 31 chances.
