Philadelphia wins on late-game heroics.

The Phillies got off to a good start in their weekend set against the Colorado Rockies, winning 3-2 on Friday night due to some late-inning heroics.

With the score tied 2-2, and Philadelphia batting in the bottom of the ninth inning, Jimmy Rollins started things off with a walk and things unraveled for Colorado from there. After Juan Pierre sacrificed Rollins over to second, the Rockies intentionally walked star Chase Utley. Nate Schierholtz then came in to pinch hit to set the stage. During the at-bat, Utley and Rollins advanced to second and third base on a wild pitch. Schierholtz then promptly dropped a single into right field and Rollins scored to win the game.

Reliever Jonathan Papelbon, who pitched the ninth inning, picked up the win for Philadelphia - it was his fourth on the season. Phillies starter Cliff Lee was solid, pitching 6 1/3 innings, striking out seven, and giving up two runs.
