Chicago, IL – Ross Gload scored the go-ahead run on wild pitch in a wild four-run, two-out rally in the ninth inning that carried the Phillies to a 4-1 comeback win over Chicago in third meeting of a four-game set.

Placido Polanco singled home the tying run and Jayson Werth walked with the bases loaded to force in an insurance marker and spell the end of the day for Chicago reliever Carlos Marmol (2-2), who suffered the loss after giving up all four runs on one hit and a season-high five walks while recording just two outs for the Cubs, who have dropped four out of seven.

Chad Durbin (1-1) worked a scoreless eighth inning to grab the win after Cole Hamels yielded a single run on eight hits over seven frames. He walked two and struck out six for the Phils, who stopped a two-game slide and won for the fifth time in seven tries. Brad Lidge threw a shutout ninth inning to preserve the win and earn his seventh save of the season.
