Pat Burrell hit a two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Philadelphia Phillies over the San Francisco Giants 6-5 last night. Aaron Rowand gave the Giants a one-run lead with a solo shot leading off the top of the inning, but the Phillies rallied against Brian Wilson (0-1). The Phillies have won nine of their last 12.

Chase Utley and Pedro Feliz each hit two-run homers for Philadelphia. The Phillies are 13-9 since shortstop Jimmy Rollins injured his ankle on April 8. The 2007 NL MVP won't come off the disabled list when he's eligible Monday, but is hoping to return for Thursday's game in Arizona. Kyle Kendrick allowed three runs and eight hits in six-plus innings, striking out six. (More MLB stories.)
