PHILADELPHIA — An ex-Astro hitting for the Phillies took an ex-Phillie pitching for the Astros deep in walk-off fashion.

Hunter Pence recovered from a near-costly fielding miscue earlier in the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the 10th off Brett Myers, his second of the game, to win the game for the Phillies, 4-3.

The win was the third straight for the Phillies, their first three-game winning streak all season. It was also their first series sweep, though a two-gamer, of the season.

Pence’s error in the bottom of the 9th nearly cost the Phillies the game.

Chad Qualls had already allowed a run to score in the 9th inning, cutting the Phillies lead to 3-2. It was then that the wheels nearly fell off for the Phillies bullpen once again.
