SAN DIEGO -- Two errors by San Diego Padres second baseman Logan Forsythe allowed the Philadelphia Phillies to claim a 7-5 victory in 13 innings at Petco Park on Wednesday night.
Forsythe bobbled Ben Revere's grounder for one error with two outs in the 13th, then threw wildly toward home for another error. The ball bounced off Chase Utley, who scored the go-ahead run, allowing Domonic Brown to score the game's final run.
The win allowed the Phillies to take two of three in the series. Philadelphia (38-41) has prevailed in 26 of its 33 outings at Petco Park. The Padres (39-40) lost for the fourth time in five games.
Joe Savery (1-0) pitched a hitless 12th for the victory. Jonathan Papelbon gave up a hit in the 13th before striking out Nick Hundley for his 15th save.
Tommy Layne (0-2) allowed two runs (both unearned) in two-thirds of an inning.
Delmon Young's two-run homer in the eighth, his seventh of the season, tied the score at 5.
Phillies starter Cole Hamels, a San Diego native, didn't have his usual stellar effort against his hometown team.
Hamels had won his previous five starts against the Padres, allowing just one run or none in each of those games with a 0.73 ERA. At Petco Park, Hamels had won four in a row with 0.60 ERA. Hamels hadn't lost to the Padres since July 19, 2007.
This time, the Padres touched him for five runs (four earned) on seven hits in six innings. Hamels struck out five and walked two.
Padres starter Robbie Erlin, who was called up Wednesday from Triple-A Tucson, gave up three runs (two earned) in 6 1/3 innings. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out seven. Erlin's last major league start was June 1, when he defeated the Toronto Blue Jays.
Kyle Blanks' RBI double in the sixth gave the Padres a 5-2 advantage. However, Blanks cost the Padres a run in the seventh when he dropped pinch hitter Kevin Frandsen's foul ball to right that would have ended the inning.
Instead, Frandsen singled to right to score Brown to cut San Diego's lead to 5-3. After a walk to Jimmy Rollins loaded the bases, reliever Joe Thatcher retired Chase Utley on a groundout to first to end the threat.
However, Young's home run off reliever Luke Gregerson to left with two outs in the eighth forced extra innings.
An RBI double off the wall in left by Michael Young gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead with one out in the first.
Philadelphia made it 2-0 in the second when Carlos Ruiz lifted a sacrifice fly to center, scoring Delmon Young, with two outs.
San Diego's Pedro Ciriaco led off the third with a bunt single and advanced to second on Erlin's sacrifice. Ciriaco scored on Forsythe's RBI double to left, cutting the Phillies' lead to 2-1.
Forsythe scored from second when right fielder Delmon Young misplayed a single by Chris Denorfia into an error and allowed the Padres to tie the score.
Denorfia's two-run homer off Hamels with two outs in the fifth gave the Padres a 4-2 lead.
NOTES: Phillies RHP Mike Adams has three tears in his shoulder and is weighing whether to have season-ending surgery or rehab and an attempt a return later this season. Adams met with Dodgers physician Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Tuesday to get a second opinion. Adams is 1-4 with a 3.96 in 28 games. ... Phillies RHP Jonathan Pettibone left his last start against the New York Mets in the seventh inning last Saturday because of tightness in his lower back. However, the Phillies said there were no lingering effects, and Pettibone will start as scheduled against the Dodgers on Thursday. ... To clear a roster spot for Erlin, the Padres optioned RHP Brad Brach back to Tucson. ... Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko singled in the third inning but felt tightness in his right leg as he rounded first base during the first game of a rehab assignment in Double-A San Antonio on Wednesday night. Gyorko, who has been on the disabled list since June 10 with a right groin strain, had been expected to be activated by Friday when the Padres begin a road trip in Miami. ... The game drew a crowd of 25,610.
