SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Giants beat the Phillies, 4-3, in 10 innings Wednesday afternoon.

The Phils rallied for two runs against Giants closer Sergio Romo in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 3-3.

The Giants won it on a two-out base hit by Andres Torres in the bottom of the 10th. Torres’ single to shallow right came against Antonio Bastardo and scored Buster Posey with the winning run.

The Phils won two of three in San Francisco. They are 16-19.

Starting pitching report
Rookie Jonathan Pettibone allowed seven hits and three runs in 5 2/3 innings.

Lefty Barry Zito (4-1) used an assortment of soft stuff to hold the Phillies to four hits and one run over seven-plus innings. He left with a 3-1 lead.

Zito has allowed just two earned runs in 33 innings at home.

Bullpen report
Mike Adams kept the game tied with a scoreless ninth inning. He allowed two hits, but got plenty of help from his defense as catcher Carlos Ruiz gunned down Gregor Blanco trying to steal second. Rightfielder Delmon Young and centerfielder Ben Revere both ran down deep balls for the final two outs in the frame.

Bastardo allowed a leadoff single to Posey in the 10th. He also threw a wild pitch.

Right-hander Santiago Casilla got a big out in the eighth when he struck out pinch-hitter Ryan Howard with a runner on first base.

Romo had converted 12 of 13 save chances this season before blowing a two-run lead in the ninth.

At the plate
Kevin Frandsen accounted for the Phils’ first run with a solo homer in the fourth. Jimmy Rollins doubled with one out in the sixth, but was thrown out trying to steal third in a one-run game. He atoned in the ninth with a leadoff double against Romo. He moved to third on a fly ball and scored on a single by Chase Utley. Delmon Young tied the game with a sacrifice fly to right.

Michael Young scored the tying run. Earlier in the inning, he drew a huge walk against Romo. He was down in the count, 1-2, then laid off three sliders to draw the walk.

Hunter Pence got the Giants on the board with a second-inning solo homer against Pettibone.

The Phils walked Guillermo Quiroz to get to Zito with two outs in the sixth and Zito made them pay with a first-pitch RBI single against Pettibone to give the Giants a two-run lead.

In the field
Centerfielder Revere, playing deep to start with, appeared to get a slow jump on Marco Scutaro’s two-out bloop hit to shallow center in the fifth. The hit broke a 1-1 tie.

Ruiz made one of the game’s big plays when he gunned down Gregor Blanco trying to steal for the first out in the bottom of the ninth. Blanco had reached base on an infield hit.

Health check
Roy Halladay was encouraged by what doctors told him about his injured shoulder, but he’s not out of the woods as he prepares for surgery (see story).

Charlie Manuel tied Gene Mauch for most games managed in franchise history – 1,331. Manuel will move into first place on Thursday.

Up next
The Phils move on to Arizona, where they will open a four-game series against the Diamondbacks on Thursday night. Cole Hamels (1-4, 4.34) pitches against lefty Patrick Corbin (4-0, 1.81) in the opener.

Tyler Cloyd makes his season debut Friday night against Ian Kennedy (1-3, 5.19)

Cliff Lee (3-2, 3.26) opposes right-hander Trevor Cahill (2-3, 2.80) on Saturday night.
