Phillies top Padres 7-5 with unearned runs in 13th

SAN DIEGO - Second baseman Logan Forsythe bobbled Ben Revere's grounder in the 13th inning and then threw home wildly, leading to two unearned runs in the Philadelphia Phillies' 7-5 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.
 
Chase Utley, who was hit by a pitch, and Domonic Brown, who walked against Tommy Layne (0-2) scored the decisive runs. Forsythe bounced a throw as he tried to prevent Utley from scoring. The ball bounced away from catcher Nick Hundley, allowing Brown to score also.
 
Joe Savory (1-0) worked one inning and Jonathan Papelbon got the final three outs for his 15th save in 19 chances.
 
The Phillies, who trailed 5-2 after six innings, rallied to tie it with an unearned run in the seventh and two runs in the eighth on a two-run home run by Delmon Young off Luke Gregerson.
