Edmundo Sosa hit the go-ahead single in the eighth inning and the host Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday
Kyle Schwarber had two hits, including a solo home run, and Jake Cave added an RBI single for the Phillies
Philadelphia leveled the four game series at one victory apiece by winning for the fourth time in six games. Colorado had snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over the Phillies on Thursday
Phillies starter Aaron Nola tossed a season-high seven innings and allowed four hits and three runs with three strikeouts and three walks
Seranthony Dominguez (1-1) earned the win in relief, and Jose Alvarado tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his third save in four chances. Sosa made a stellar catch for the second out on C.J. Cron's sharp line drive to third.
Ryan McMahon hit a three-run home run for the Rockies, who managed only four hits
Rockies starter Noah Davis gave up six hits and two runs, one earned, with five strikeouts and no walks in 4 2/3 innings
Brad Hand (0-1), who surrendered the single to Sosa, took the loss.
J.T. Realmuto doubled off Hand to open the bottom of the eighth. Realmuto stole third and scored on Sosa's RBI single to left for a 4-3 lead. Colorado left fielder Jurickson Profar nearly caught the ball and managed to trap it.
Sosa was playing for the first time since April 15, having recovered from a back ailment.
The Rockies went ahead 3-0 in the first inning when McMahon blasted a three-run home run to center field, his fourth long ball of the year
Rockies manager Bud Black was ejected by plate umpire Alex Tosi in the fourth after Realmuto appeared to be hit by a pitch to load the bases. The Rockies had already used their challenge and it was unclear whether Realmuto was grazed on the elbow
In the bottom of the fourth, the Phillies closed within 3-2 when Davis was called for a balk to force in a run and Cave added an RBI infield single
Nola retired the side in order on just 10 pitches in the seventh before exiting.
Schwarber launched a solo homer to right off Dinelson Lamet in the bottom of the seventh to tie the game at 3.
