Pence’s Homer Gives Phillies Walk-off Win Over Astros

Hunter Pence atoned for a ninth-inning error by hitting his second home run of the game, a solo shot in the 10th that lifted the Philadelphia Phillies over the Houston Astros 4-3 Tuesday.

Pence connected off former Philadelphia closer Brett Myers (0-1) with one out to give the Phillies their first three-game winning streak of the season.

Pence’s bobble in right field while trying to make a throw home allowed Houston to tie it with two outs in the ninth.

Chad Qualls failed to hold a 3-1 lead in the ninth and kept Cliff Lee winless in five starts this season. Lee allowed one run and struck out 10 over eight strong innings.

Jake Diekman tossed 1 1-3 scoreless innings to win his major league debut.
