AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
• Wilson Valdez's two-out double in the top of the 11th gave the Phillies a 6-5 lead, and they held on to snap a three-game losing streak. Philadelphia improved to 9-6 on the road, the best road record in the NL.
• Ryan Howard homered, snapping a drought of 65 straight at-bats without a HR, the longest of his career. It was his third HR vs. Tim Lincecum, the most by any player vs. Lincecum.
• Lincecum allowed his second HR at home this season after not allowing any home runs at home last season.
• The Giants lost despite outhitting the Phillies 17-8. They had won 49 straight games when getting 17-plus hits.

Phillies SS Jimmy Rollins has begun jogging again, but wasn't sure when he would start true running as part of his recovery from a strained right calf that landed him on the disabled list April 14. "I'm not going to rush it this time. I rushed it last time," he said in reference to an ankle injury in 2008. "But we won a World Series." ... Several Giants players, including slugger Pablo Sandoval, were headed to "Homecoming Night" hosted by the Class-A San Jose team to honor those players who have gone on from that club to reach the big leagues. ... Injured Giants 2B Uribe, who hasn't started since exiting early in Saturday night's game against St. Louis, expects to return to the lineup Friday night against Colorado after Thursday's day off. "I'm much better," he said. "Not quite 100 percent, but close."
