Just another ho-hum comeback for the Phillies.
Chris Snelling takes the first pitch from Jose Valverde and hits a solo homer to right field in the ninth to make it, 3-1. Valverde hits Chase Utley with the next pitch and two batters later Pat Burrell hits a game-trying home run to right field. Geoff Jenkins follows, strikes out and reaches first on a passed ball. Pedro Feliz then rips a ball down the left-field line. Jenkins blows through third base coach Steve Smith's stop sign at third and scores on a bang-bang play at the plate to beat the Astros, 4-3.
If the Phillies lose tonight they'll be 2-4 without Jimmy Rollins in the starting lineup.
