Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Michael Youngs grounder in the bottom of the ninth inning was bobbled by Hanley Ramirez, allowing the winning run to score and giving Ryne Sandberg his first win as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles that snapped the Dodgers 10-game win streak. With one out in the ninth and Brandon League (6-4) on the mound for Los Angeles, Casper Wells hit a grounder to short that saw Ramirez throw the ball short for an error. Carlos Ruiz then had his fourth hit in his fourth at-bat as his single put runners at the corners. Jimmy Rollins was then intentionally walked and Young hit a grounder to short that appeared to have the potential for an inning-ending double play. Ramirez, though, bobbled the ball and Wells scored for the win. It was the first win of the managerial career of Sandberg, who took over for the fired Charlie Manuel on Friday. The Phillies had been shut out in the first two games of this series to begin Sandbergs tenure as manager. While the loss snapped their winning streak, the Dodgers are still a red-hot team, sporting a 42-9 record since June 22 and the run has given them a comfortable lead in the NL West. Darin Ruf hit a solo home run while Cody Asche also drove in a run for the Phillies, who came into the game having lost seven of eight. Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings in the start, giving up two runs on seven hits without walking a batter and striking out eight. Jonathan Papelbon (3-1) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win. Andre Ethier hit a solo home run and scored twice with Jerry Hairston providing the other RBI for the Dodgers, who saw starter Ricky Nolasco give up two runs on five hits with a walk and five strikeouts in six innings. The Dodgers took the lead in the second inning as Ethier led off the frame with his ninth homer of the year, a shot over the wall in right center. It was 2-0 in the fourth after Ethier hit a one-out single, moved to second on a wild pitch, and crossed the plate on a Hairston single to left. The Phillies broke their 21-inning scoreless spell in the fourth when Ruf clubbed a 2-2 pitch into the left field seats for his eighth home run of the season to make it a 2-1 game. Philly tied the game in the sixth as the team loaded the bases with one out and Asches fielders choice grounder plated Chase Utley to make it a 2-2 game. Wells grounded out to end the frame.

It sure is making the year a lot easier for the slugging outfielder to handle. Getting a game-winning home run against his former club? Well, thats just icing on the cake. Cheered in every at-bat this series by the crowd at AT&T Park, Schierholtz homered off ex-teammate Sergio Romo with one out in the ninth inning to lift the Cubs to a 1-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night. "I cant really describe it, but it felt good," Schierholtz said. "I always loved playing here. I love the fans here. I couldnt ask for a better reception." Dropped to sixth in the Cubs lineup after batting cleanup a night earlier in the clubs first game after trading Alfonso Soriano, Schierholtz worked a full count off Romo (3-6) before hitting a towering blast into the right field stands to hand Romo his second loss in as many games. Schierholtz played with San Francisco from 2007-2012 before getting traded to Philadelphia in exchange for Hunter Pence midway through last season. He signed with Chicago as a free agent in the off-season and had been bothered by shoulder problems earlier in the year before heating up over the past two weeks. The home run off Romo was Schierholtzs 14th of the season and third on the teams current 10-game road trip. Seven of his 10 hits on the road trip have been for extra bases. "Its pretty nice to watch," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "Its obviously huge for him to do that to his old team." Starlin Castro added two hits for Chicago, which is 18-13 in its last 31 games. Madison Bumgarner pitched eight shutout innings for San Francisco but left without a decision. The World Series champs have lost six of seven and are a season-high 11 games under .500. Since May 13, the Giants have the worst record in the majors at 23-42. "Were in a tough rut now and we know it," San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. "We just have to keep working and trying. We couldnt even get a cheap hit and we got what we deserve." Pedro Strop (1-0) pitched one inning for the win despite making two mental mistakes that helped the Giants load the bases with no outs in the eighth. Strop twice made late throws on sacrifice bunt attempts but got out of it when Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval grounded into forceouts at home and Hunter Pence struck ouut.dddddddddddd "That was one of our more exciting innings of the year," Sveum said. "We were going to win it or lose it there." Kevin Gregg worked the ninth for his 21st save to complete the five-hitter, getting pinch-hitter Tony Abreu to ground into a 3-2-3 double play after San Francisco loaded the bases with one out. The Cubs won their second straight in this three-game set after dropping three of four to the Giants at Wrigley Field in April. Chicago scored two unearned runs in the ninth inning to beat San Francisco 3-2 on Friday. This one went down to the wire again. Chicago only got one runner to second base until Schierholtzs homer. That was enough to hold off the slumping Giants, who were shut out for the ninth time this season. Both starters were dominant but left without a decision. Chicago rookie Chris Rusin needed just 27 pitches to get through the third inning and didnt allow a baserunner until Pences one-out walk in the fifth. One batter later Joaquin Arias grounded a single to centre to end the no-hit bid. Rusin also worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the sixth and got help in the seventh when first baseman Anthony Rizzo made a leaping stab of Brandon Belts high liner to strand Pence at third base after he led off the inning with a ground-rule double. Bumgarner was equally effective until leaving for a pinch hitter in the eighth. The Giants most consistent starter this season and an All-Star, Bumgarner overcame a pair of errors behind him and pitched out of a two-on, two-out jam when Andres Torres made a diving catch on Schierholtzs sinking liner in the sixth. He finished with seven strikeouts and two walks. NOTES: The Giants committed two more errors and lead the majors with 76 this season. ...
