SAN DIEGO (AP) — Adam Frazier scored the winning run on a wild pitch by Philadelphia’s Connor Brogdon in the 10th inning, and the San Diego Padres overcame a strong outing by Aaron Nola and beat the Phillies 4-3.

Jake Cronenworth hit a two-run homer to center field with two-out in the ninth inning off Nola to tie the game at 3-all.

Mark Melancon (3-2) earned the win by pitching scoreless ninth and 10th innings.

Brogdon (5-3) took the loss. Nola, who didn’t figure in the decision, pitched a perfect game through six innings and lasted 8 2/3 innings, finishing with 11 strikeouts.
