The Phillies got a three run home run from John Mayberry Junior and a solo shot from Carlos Ruiz in building a 5-0 lead, but still needed to hang on to beat the Colorado Rockies, 5-4.

Rookie starter Ethan Martin pitched well, giving up 2 runs and 4 hits in 6 and a third innings and relievers Justin De Fratus and Jake Diekman were outstanding out of the bullpen, coming up with big strikeouts when they were needed.

Jonathan Papelbon got his 21st save of the season and first since July 11th.

Tonight, Tyler Cloyd gets a call-up from Triple A to start tonight's game against Jorge De La Rosa.

Pre-game coverage on WDEL starts at 6:30.
