Paul Goldschmidt also drove in a run for the Diamondbacks, winners in three
Josh Collmenter (1-2) picked up his first win of the season after scattering
four hits over six scoreless innings. He fanned five without issuing a walk.
"As a starting rotation, you take pride in being able to go out there and give
the team a chance to win and then hand the ball to the next guy," Collmenter
said. "We've gotten some quality efforts the last few times out so we're
hoping that that can continue."
Addison Reed notched his sixth save of the season despite allowing a run in
the ninth inning.
Jimmy Rollins went 2-for-5 with an RBI while Cody Asche and Tony Gwynn Jr.
finished with one RBI apiece for the Phillies, losers in two of three.

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said of Collmenter. "He was moving it around.
He had movement on his fastball."
Roberto Hernandez (1-1) allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings to
absorb the loss.

4-0 lead. Miguel Montero worked a leadoff walk ahead of Hill's homer to left-

Martin Prado's ground out. Goldschmidt followed with a base hit to right to
score Parra. After Montero walked, Hill smacked a ground-rule double to left-

The Phillies pushed three runs across in the seventh. With the bases loaded
