Opposite five-time World Series champion and eventual 2010 All-Star Andy Pettitte, the Phillies outslugged the Yankees — including a four-run ninth inning — en route to an interleague series win in a game that lasted 3 hours and 15 minutes before a crowd of 47,204.
Entering the game, the only Yankee to have previously faced the 25-year-old RHP Kyle Kendrick was first baseman Mark Teixeira (1-12). Through seven solid innings, Kendrick yielded just one run, two walks and four singles, including a RBI base knock to second baseman Robinson Cano. Right-hander Jose Contreras recorded his fifth hole, tossing 1 1/3 scoreless, while left-hander J.C. Romero recorded the final two outs on just four total pitches.
Center fielder Shane Victorino went yard with one on and two outs against the southpaw in the fifth, replacing the injured Jimmy Rollins in the leadoff position. Also, catcher Carlos Ruiz ended his 0-for-23 stretch with a pair of doubles. Every Phillies starter except second baseman Chase Utley logged a hit; Victorino and Ruiz, meanwhile logged multiple base knocks.
For the Yankees, Nos. 1 through 3 hitters, shortstop Derek Jeter, center fielder Curtis Granderson and Teixeira, went a combined 0-for-11 with one run scored, one walk and three strikeouts.
Stellar late fielding plays from third baseman Placido Polanco and right fielder Jayson Werth preserved the win, the Phillies’ first two-game streak for the first time in two weeks.
