PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ryan Howard drove in two runs and seven pitchers combined to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 7-4 on Sunday night and complete a doubleheader sweep.

John Mayberry Jr. hit an RBI single in the ninth inning of the first game to lift the Phillies to a 3-2 win.

The Phillies trailed 4-1 in the second game before scoring two runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings for their fourth straight win. They have forced their way into the NL wild-card race and play their next seven games against cellar dwellers Miami and Houston.

B.J. Rosenberg (1-2) struck out two in a scoreless sixth for the win. Josh Roenicke (4-2) took the loss.

Jonathan Papelbon tossed a scoreless ninth for his 32nd save.

The Rockies followed Wilin Rosario’s four passed balls in Game 1 with five errors in the nightcap.
