WP: Jonathan Papelbon (3-4, 3.00 ERA) LP: Josh Collmenter (3-3, 4.23 ERA)
Things looked bleak for Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies once the Diamondbacks retook the lead in the top of the 6th inning due to Paul Goldschmidt's 16th home run of the season. The Fightin' Phils would rally back, however. Domonic Brown's single in the bottom of the 8th, scoring John Mayberry, would tie the action. The bottom of the ninth would get better. Josh Collmenter of Arizona allowed two hits and one walk up to the point when Ryan Howard came to bat. He would eventually single achieving the walk off as the winning run, Juan Pierre, scored.
The Atlanta Braves come to town for a division rival matchup featuring Vance Worley, Cole Hamels, and Kyle Kendrick in the Phillies rotation.
