Mayberry, Ruiz lead Phillies past Rockies 5-4

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - John Mayberry Jr. and Carlos Ruiz each homered to lead the Philadelphia Phillies past the Colorado Rockies 5-4 Monday night.

Ethan Martin (2-2) tossed two-hit ball and struck out six over 6 1-3 innings for the win.

Mayberry hit a three-run shot in the fourth to help lead the Phillies to their second straight win under interim manager Ryne Sandberg. Sandberg took over Friday when Charlie Manuel, the winningest manager in club history, was fired.

Jonathan Papelbon tossed a scoreless ninth for his first 21st save, and first since July 11.

Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo shot for the Rockies. Jeff Manship (0-3) allowed five runs in five innings.
