PHILADELPHIA — Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz each homered off closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the ninth innings Sunday, rallying the Philadelphia Phillies past the Cincinnati Reds for a stunning 3-2 victory.


Chapman (3-2) blew his second straight save opportunity after converting his first eight chances this season.


Antonio Bastardo (2-1) pitched a scoreless ninth inning for Philadelphia.


Jay Bruce homered and Homer Bailey tossed seven scoreless innings for the Reds.


Marlins 2, Diamondbacks 1


MIAMI — Ricky Nolasco struck out 11 and the Marlins stopped a season-high seven-game losing streak by holding off Arizona.


The Diamondbacks scored once in the ninth. Mike Dunn, the Marlins’ third pitcher of the inning, got pinch-hitter A.J. Pollock to ground out on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded to end it.


Cardinals 4, Brewers 2


ST. LOUIS — David Freese had an RBI in a four-run fourth inning to go with big plays at third base, and the Cardinals beat former teammate Kyle Lohse for the third time this season.

The Mets won two of three on this trip to Chicago.
