Phils rally late to beat Rox

DENVER (AP) - Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. hit a game-tying two run homer in the ninth inning and Shane Victorino homered to lead off the 10th as the Philadelphia Phillies overtook the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Monday night for their fourth straight win.

Down to their last out and trailing 3-1 in the ninth, the Phillies rallied against Rockies closer Huston Street. Carlos Ruiz hit a two-out double and Mayberry pinch-hit for reliever Michael Stutes.

Mayberry worked the count full before putting Street's 83 mph slider into the bleachers in left for his seventh homer.

Rex Brothers (1-2) came on to pitch the 10th and Victorino greeted him with a drive clearing the wall in left for the Phillies' 29th come-from-behind victory this season.
