Phillies rally for 6-5 victory over Cubs
By Jay Cohen/AP

Michael Young had four hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday in Ryne Sandberg's return to Wrigley Field.

Kevin Frandsen had two hits and scored two runs after entering in the sixth, helping Philadelphia bounce back from Thursday's 11-3 loss to the New York Mets. Chase Utley added a key two-run triple.

The Phillies improved to 9-6 since Sandberg was promoted to interim manager when Charlie Manuel was fired on Aug. 16. The Hall of Fame second baseman spent most of his playing career with the Cubs and was cheered all day long in his first trip to Chicago since he was elevated to the top spot in Philadelphia.
