PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Freddy Galvis drove in three runs and Rafael Marchand and Travis Jankowski hit back-to-back RBI triples that sent the Philadelphia Phillies over the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-4 Sunday.
Bryce Harper, Jean Segura and Marchand each had two hits for the Phillies, who have won three in a row and remained 4 1/2 games behind NL East-leading Atlanta.
After the Diamondbacks closed to 5-4 in the eighth, Marchand and Jankowski tripled to give Philadelphia some needed insurance in the bottom half.
Ranger Suarez (6-4) allowed only one run in 5 1/3 innings. In six starts since leaving the closer’s role to solidify the back of the rotation, he is 1-1 with a 2.03 ERA in 26 2/3 innings.
Ian Kennedy pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save of the season and fifth since the Phillies got him from Texas at the trade deadline.
Madison Bumgarner (7-9) allowed five earned runs and seven hits in five innings.
Nick Ahmed had three RBIs, including a two-run single in the eighth for the Diamondbacks.
Philadelphia scored twice in the first on an RBI single by Andrew McCutchen and a sacrifice fly by Galvis.
Arizona’s Jake McCarthy recorded his first major league hit when he doubled home a run in the second.
Galvis had a two-run single as the Phillies took a 5-1 lead in the fifth.
Ahmed hit an RBI double in the seventh, then singled in the eighth to get Arizona within a run.
