National League Game Summary - Arizona at Philadelphia
(Saturday, July 26)
Final Score: Arizona 10, Philadelphia 6 (10 innings)
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Martin Prado's fifth RBI of the night was a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the 10th inning as the Arizona Diamondbacks earned a 10-6 comeback victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
Prado went 3-for-4 with a home run and lofted a short fly ball to center field with runners on second and third and one out in the deciding frame. The weak- armed Ben Revere had his throw home cut off as Ender Inciarte scored.
Nick Evans tacked on a pinch-hit, three-run homer later in the inning for Arizona, which bounced back from losing the opener of this three-game series despite starter Josh Collmenter not making it out of the third inning.
"It was good to come back and win a game. The guys kept plugging along and we got great contributions from everyone," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said.
Antonio Bastardo (4-4) surrendered all four runs in the 10th to take the loss, while Evan Marshall (3-2) stranded a pair in the ninth to earn the win.
Cody Asche hit a two-run homer and Marlon Byrd added a solo shot for the Phillies, who managed 17 hits but left 14 runners on base.
"Putting six runs up early was the positive side of things, but we weren't able to add on," Sandberg said.
Cliff Lee, in perhaps his final start in Philadelphia with the trade deadline looming, lasted five innings and helped himself offensively with two hits and an RBI. The left-hander, who was making his second start since coming off the disabled list, gave up three runs on nine hits in the no-decision.
Mark Trumbo snapped an 0-for-13 slump with a broken-bat, RBI single in the away first, but the Phillies struck for four runs in the second to jump ahead.
Asche smacked a two-run blast into the right-field seats, and after Lee and Grady Sizemore both singled, both Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley added a run with a double and single, respectively.
Prado and Byrd traded leadoff homers in the third, and Lee singled home Carlos Ruiz later in the inning to end Collmenter's outing.
Collmenter, was tagged for six runs on 11 hits over 2 2/3 innings.
Prado kept Arizona close with an RBI single in the fourth and a two-run double in the sixth, and Inciarte's run-scoring groundout in the seventh evened things at 6-6.
