Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Ryan Howard hit the go-ahead single in the 10th inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies past the Arizona Diamondbacks, 4-2, in the finale of a four-game set at Chase Field.

Jimmy Rollins singled and Chase Utley doubled to put runners at second and third with one out. Howard then ripped a base hit to right field off Matt Reynolds (0-1), who hadn't allowed a run all season, to put the Phillies ahead 4-2.

Utley finished the game 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and scored twice, and Michael Young collected two hits for the Phillies, winners in back-to-back games.

Justin De Fratus (1-0) recorded the final out of the ninth inning to earn the win and Jonathan Papelbon stranded a runner on second in the 10th to notch his seventh save of the season.

Gerardo Parra hit homer and A.J. Pollock drove in a run for the D'backs, who lost for just the third time in eight games.

Starter Brandon McCarthy scattered seven hits over eight shutout innings in the setback.
