The Phillies have won consecutive games for the first time since a three-game streak May 17-20.

Starters Cole Hamels and Tyson Ross matched zeroes, but didn’t get decisions. Hamels struck out a season-high 11 and allowed five hits in eight shutout innings for the Phillies. Ross struck out seven in seven scoreless innings, giving up four hits.

Jonathan Papelbon (2-1) tossed a scoreless ninth for the win.

Nick Vincent (0-2) walked Domonic Brown with one out and hit Carlos Ruiz on 1-2 pitch. Brignac then sent a 2-0 pitch into the right-field seats for his first homer with the Phillies and his second walk-off hit in two weeks. Brignac was just 8 for 40 with 19 strikeouts before going deep.
