San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies outlasted the San
Diego Padres, 7-5, thanks to a double error from Padres second baseman Logan
Forsythe in the top of the 13th inning.
The Padres sent Tommy Layne (0-2) to the mound in the 13th. Chase Utley was
hit by a pitch to start the frame. Layne retired the next two batters before
walking Domonic Brown. Ben Revere followed with a grounder to Forsythe, who
failed to field the ball cleanly. Forsythe's throw to the plate was off the
mark as the second run crossed the plate on the play.
Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, who had blown each of his previous three
save opportunities, capped a solid performance from the Philadelphia bullpen
by tossing a scoreless 13th. It was the 15th save of the season for Papelbon.
