Recap: Philadelphia vs. San Diego

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - John Mayberry Jr. had three extra- base hits, including a three-run homer, and the Phillies completed a three- game sweep of the San Diego Padres with a 7-3 win in rainy Philadelphia.

Reid Brignac, the hero from Wednesday night, came off the bench and broke a 2-2 tie with a two-run double in the sixth for the Phillies. Mayberry then provided some insurance with his seventh-inning blast.

Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendrick (2-6) overcame a rough first inning to pitch six frames.

Mayberry doubled twice off San Diego starter Eric Stults (2-8), the second time to open the sixth. After Domonic Brown followed with a single, Dale Thayer relieved Stults, who hasn't won in over a month.

It looked like a wasted opportunity for the Phillies after a review upheld Mayberry being tagged out on a force play at the plate and pinch-hitter Ryan Howard ended a 13-pitch at-bat with a strike out. But Brignac, who crushed a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to lift Philadelphia to a 3-0 win the previous night, doubled to the gap in left-center field.

The Phillies padded their lead against the San Diego bullpen. Alex Torres walked a pair before surrendering Mayberry's one-out drive to left in the seventh.

A trio of left-handers -- Antonio Bastardo, Jake Diekman and Mario Hollands -- were flawless in relief of Kendrick, and Ken Giles made his major league debut with two gone in the ninth.

The hard-throwing right-hander gave up a home run to Yasmani Grandal before striking out Alexi Amarista.

"Giles got in there to get his feet wet, literally. It was muddy out there," Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg said, referencing the field conditions. (It rained steadily throughout the game.)

Will Venable and Everth Cabrera began the game with consecutive singles off Kendrick. After a fielder's choice, Chase Headley lined an RBI double to right field and a second run scored on an error by Marlon Byrd.

"Kendrick gave up two runs in the first and then was solid and had a good start. Obviously put up zeroes, giving the offense a chance to swing the bats," Sandberg said.

The Phillies got a run back in the bottom of the first when Ben Revere led off with a double and scored on a Jimmy Rollins single.

It was the lone hit for Rollins, who moved within one of tying Mike Schmidt's franchise record of 2,234.

Brown tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.
