Phillies Rally Late to Top Rockies

Todd Helton missed tagging first base to allow the winning run to score on Placido Polanco’s grounder in the ninth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6 on Wednesday night.

After Dexter Fowler hit a tiebreaking RBI single off Jonathan Papelbon (1-2) with two outs in the ninth, the Phillies got a clutch, two-out hit of their own in the bottom half.

Rafael Betancourt (1-3) retired the first two batters before Ty Wigginton singled. Pence doubled off the wall in left to score Wigginton.

Carlos Ruiz was intentionally walked and Shane Victorino hustled out an infield single. Polanco hit a grounder to shortstop Marco Scutaro whose throw to first was a bit high, but Helton caught it and had time to beat a hustling Polanco. He stretched for first and missed. Helton, a multiple Gold Glove Award winner, was charged with his second error of the season.
