Pedro Feliz's RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning capped a four-run rally that carried the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Houston starter Shawn Chacon allowed only four singles in eight impressive innings before handing the ball to closer Jose Valverde.
But pinch-hitter Chris Snelling hit a leadoff homer in the ninth off Valverde (2-1), and Chase Utley was hit by a pitch. After Ryan Howard struck out, Pat Burrell tied the score at 3 with a two-run homer to right. Geoff Jenkins struck out, but the ball eluded catcher Brad Ausmus for a passed ball and Jenkins scampered safely to first before Feliz ripped a shot into the left-field corner, scoring the runner.
