Michael Young’s single with two outs in the 13th inning ended a long, long day of baseball for the Phillies.

Young’s fourth hit in 24 innings of ball between two games of the day-night doubleheader on Saturday and into Sunday morning helped the Phillies earn a split with a 2-1 victory.

The teams will take a short nap before returning to the ballpark to play the series finale later in the afternoon.

Starting pitching report
John Lannan was stellar, allowing just four hits over eight innings for a second straight outing. The lefty allowed just one run, walked one and had three strikeouts. After allowing two hits with two outs in the first inning, Lannan held the ChiSox hitless until the fifth inning. He also recorded 12 outs against the last 12 hitters he faced in four perfect innings.

For the White Sox, Hector Santiago allowed a run on three hits and a walk with nine strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings. One of those hits was a solo homer by John Mayberry Jr. with two outs in the seventh inning. From the second inning to the eighth, Santiago retired 17 of the 19 hitters he faced.

Bullpen report
Recent call-up Luis Garcia pitched scoreless innings in the ninth and 10th before turning it over to Justin De Fratus in the 11th. De Fratus walked the first hitter he faced on four pitches, but retired the next two before giving another walk to Conor Gillaspie. That’s when a single to left by Tyler Flowers sent the go-ahead run toward home only to be cut down by a strong throw by Dom Brown.

Jake Diekman pitched a scoreless 12th inning to set it up for Joe Savery in the 13th.

Savery picked up the win to improve to 2-0. Incidentally, Savery’s other win this season came in a 13-inning game.

At the plate
Mayberry’s homer was his seventh of the season. Chase Utley and Humberto Quintero also picked up singles off Santiago. Michael Young singled with two outs in the 11th.

The White Sox scored in the fifth inning of Gordon Beckham’s bases-loaded sacrifice fly with no outs. However, Lannan got out of the potential game-breaking inning when he got Jeff Keppinger to hit into an inning-ending double play.

In the field
The Phillies committed three errors in the fourth and fifth innings. Lannan was able to wiggle out of trouble after throwing errors by shortstop John McDonald and catcher Quintero, but his own miscue in the fifth set up the White Sox for the first run of the game.

Brown’s throw to end the 11th was his third outfield assist of the season.

Up next
The Phillies close out the three-game series and the first-half of the season on Sunday when Cole Hamels (4-11, 4.17) takes on lefty Jose Quintana (4-2, 3.67).

Hamels faced the White Sox once in his career, going eight innings and allowing a pair of runs on six hits and a walk in a 7-3 victory on June 12, 2007.

Quintana has never faced the Phillies, however, he pitched for Single A Tampa in the Florida State League in 2011 where he faced Darin Ruf, who played for Clearwater.
