PHOENIX (AP) -

Ryan Howard looped a two-run single to right field in the 10th inning after Philadelphia scored twice in the ninth to tie it, lifting the Phillies to a 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Shut down by Brandon McCarthy for the first eight innings, the Phillies scored two runs in the ninth against fill-in Diamondbacks closer Heath Bell.

Jimmy Rollins singled with one out in the 10th off Matt Reynolds (0-1), and Chase Utley followed with his fourth hit, a double to the corner in right.

Hitless with nine strikeouts in his previous 18 at-bats, Howard followed with a floating single to right over Arizona's drawn-in infield.

Justin De Fratus (1-0) got the final out in the ninth inning for his second career victory and Jonathan Papelbon worked a one-hit 10th for his seventh save in as many chances.
