Phillies Even NLCS
Jimmy Rollins stroked a three-run double and Roy Oswalt pitched eight stellar innings as the Phillies beat the Giants 6-1 in Game Two of the National League Division Series at Citizens Bank Park. Oswalt allowed three hits, three walks and one run, striking out nine to get the win. Placido Polanco’s sac-fly snapped a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning to put Philadelphia in front for good. He added an RBI single in the seventh before Rollins broke the game open with his bases-clearing double. Jonathan Sanchez struck out seven, but allowed three runs, including two earned, in six-plus innings to take the loss for San Francisco. Cody Ross homered in the fifth to tie the game at one for the Giants. The best-of-seven set is tied at one, with Game Three Tuesday in San Francisco.
