Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen's three-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Philadelphia Phillies over the Kansas City Royals, 4-3, in the middle installment of a three-game interleague series.

Holding a 3-1 lead, Kansas City sent Greg Holland (0-1) to the mound to close out the game. Instead, the right-hander walked the first three batters he faced -- Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Michael Young. He briefly rebounded by striking out Domonic Brown and John Mayberry.

Frandsen then came off the bench and drilled a fastball to right-center field, clearing the bases for the come-from-behind victory.
