Pirates 6, Phillies 4
Jimmy Rollins rounds the bases after the first of his two home runs. (Keith Srakocic/AP)
The Phils appeared to be on their way to another win after Shane Victorino's RBI triple in the ninth, but Brad Lidge blew his ninth save of the season, allowing three runs, including a walk-off two-run homer by Andrew McCutchen. Jimmy Rollins went deep twice for the sixth time in his career.
