Nix, Schierholtz lead late charge as Phils top Rockies

Laynce Nix delivered off the bench with a game-tying, two-run double in the seventh inning and a pinch-hitting Nate Schierholtz plated the winning run with a walk-off single in the ninth, as the Philadelphia Phillies edged the Colorado Rockies, 3-2, at Citizens Bank Park.

Jimmy Rollins worked a walk to begin the home half of the ninth and reached second base on a sacrifice bunt by Juan Pierre. Rollins and Chase Utley, who was intentionally walked, both advanced when Colorado reliever Will Harris (1-1) uncorked a wild pitch.

Schierholtz, hitless in his previous 15 at-bats, ripped Harris' next offering through the hole on the right side of the infield, sending the Phillies to their 10th win in 14 games.
