Ryan Howard added a solo homer and Ben Revere went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored for the Phillies, winners in three of their last four games.

Cliff Lee (10-2) was charged with four runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings. Lee, who has won his last eight decisions, struck out four without issuing a walk.
