Austin Hedges Leads Padres To 4-3 Win Over Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Austin Hedges hit a pair of solo homers and had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the ninth, Jose Pirela also went deep and the San Diego Padres beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Friday night.

After Cory Spangenberg and Carlos Asuaje hit singles off Hector Neris (2-3), Hedges fouled off a safety squeeze before hitting a fly ball to right-center that drove in the go-ahead run.

Padres starter Clayton Richard allowed one run and five hits in six innings before a 94-minute rain delay forced him out. Brad Hand (2-4) got four outs for the win and Brandon Maurer finished for his 18th save.

Following the long rain delay before the bottom of the seventh, the Phillies rallied off San Diego’s bullpen.

Cameron Rupp got it started with a single off Phil Maton, and pinch-hitter Nick Williams followed with a double. Rupp scored on a groundout, and Freddy Galvis hit an RBI single off Hand to tie it at 3-3.

Phillies starter Nick Pivetta gave up three runs and five hits, striking out nine in seven innings.

Pirela launched a 450-foot shot to left-center in the first. Hedges connected in the third and fifth. He missed the previous two games because of neck stiffness.

Philadelphia’s Tommy Joseph hit an opposite-field shot to right for his 15th homer in the fourth.
