Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Miguel Montero clubbed the go-ahead homer in
the eighth inning to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Philadelphia
Phillies, 3-2, in the second of a four-game set at Chase Field.
Montero, who entered the game 3-for-7 all-time against Phillies reliever Mike
Adams (1-3), turned on a first-pitch changeup and crushed it off the foul pole
in right field to give the Diamondbacks the decisive 3-2 lead.
Eric Chavez and Martin Prado also drove in one run apiece for Arizona, which
saw starter Ian Kennedy give up two runs on six hits over seven innings.
Tony Sipp (2-1) recorded the final two outs of the eighth to earn the win and
David Hernandez stranded runners on second and third in the ninth to pick up
his first save of the season.
Jimmy Rollins homered and Domonic Brown drove in a run for Philadelphia, which
has dropped three straight one-run games.
Phillies starter Tyler Cloyd, who started his first game of the season, gave
up two runs on two hits and three walks of 6 1/3 innings. Cloyd was recalled
from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday to replace Roy Halladay in the Phillies
rotation. Halladay was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right
shoulder injury earlier this week.
