surgery, going 2-4 with an 8.65 earned run average, but he gave up just two
runs on four hits with a pair of walks and strikeouts over six innings to earn
his first win since April 19.
John Mayberry hit a two-run home run while Roger Bernadina and Cody Asche each
drove in a pair of runs for the Phillies, who have won six of their past eight

the Diamondbacks, who have dropped four of their last five games. Patrick
Corbin (13-4) was tagged for all nine runs -- eight earned -- on seven hits in
just 5 1/3 innings.
As mentioned, Saturday's game went 18 innings and both teams set records
for longest game time as the D-Backs needed seven hours and six minutes.
