John Mayberry Jr. hit two solo homers for the last-place Phillies, and Nate Schierholtz hit a pair of solo shots for the NL West-leading Giants.
The Phillies snapped a seven-game home losing streak and avoided their first sweep against the Giants since 2004.
Brad Penny (0-1) walked Carlos Ruiz with one out in the 12th. Laynce Nix followed with a single to right to move Ruiz to third. Rollins then lined the first pitch to right to end it.
The Phils continue their homestand Monday night with the opener of a three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. First pitch is at 7:05, and you can catch all of the action on 1150 AM WDEL.
