Francoeur comes up clutch as Phillies top Giants

Jun 7, 2015 - 11:11 PM Philadelphia, PA ( - Jeff Francoeur's two-run double in the seventh helped the Philadelphia Phillies salvage a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants with a 6-4 win on Sunday.

Freddy Galvis ended an 0-for-31 slump with a single off Ryan Vogelsong (4-4) to begin the seventh inning, then Cameron Rupp singled on a well-placed bunt in between first base and the pitcher's mound. Vogelsong looked to get out of trouble when he rolled a 5-4-3 double play off the bat of Darin Ruf, but he walked Ben Revere to end his day.

Javier Lopez came on in relief and a pinch-hitting Francoeur, who hit his second career grand slam in Saturday's loss, pulled a double into the left- field corner that plated Galvis and Revere for the lead.

"(Francoeur) came up big," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Francoeur has really been a veteran presence in those situations."

Ken Giles (2-1) tossed 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the win and Jonathan Papelbon came on in the ninth for his 12th save of the season despite giving up an RBI single to Buster Posey.

Maikel Franco added an insurance run in the eighth with a solo homer to center, Odubel Herrera cracked a solo home run earlier in the game and Cody Asche added two RBI for Philadelphia, which halted its three-game losing streak.

Joe Panik extended his hitting streak to 12 games, finishing 3-for-5, while Matt Duffy, Angel Pagan and Brandon Belt each drove in a run for the Giants, who have lost six of their last eight.

"It was a hard-fought series," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "I thought (Vogelsong) threw the ball well, even those runs that he gave up."

San Francisco took a 1-0 lead on Duffy's RBI groundout in the second.

Philadelphia answered in the home second with two runs. Ryan Howard singled and Franco followed with a double to left. Asche brought the two in with a bloop single into left that gave the Phillies a 2-1 lead.

Panik extended his hitting streak with a one-out double in the third and scored on Pagan's two-bagger in the next at-bat. Pagan just got his hand underneath the tag after Posey's fielder's choice groundout, then Belt made it 3-2 Giants with an RBI grounder to second.

Herrera opened the home third with a solo shot into the Philadelphia bullpen to tie the game.
