The Phillies unleashed some offense Friday night in beating the Arizona Diamondbacks, 9-5, at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phils had 12 hits and were 6 for 15 with runners in scoring position.

They are 45-58 on the season.

Arizona is 44-49.

Starting pitching report
Kyle Kendrick (5-10) opened the game with five shutout innings, but allowed a double, a walk and a two-out single in the sixth. All three of those runners scored when reliever Antonio Bastardo gave up a grand slam to pinch-hitter Alfredo Marte.

Kendrick walked one and struck out five in 5 2/3 innings.

Arizona lefty Wade Miley (6-7) allowed six runs over five innings.

Bullpen report
Bastardo faced four batters and allowed three hits, one the grand slam to Marte. The left-hander’s tough night came with scouts from Toronto and Detroit on hand. Both those clubs have been watching Bastardo throughout this homestand.

Good work by Justin De Fratus, who struck out three, including two with the bases loaded, to get out of trouble and preserve a two-run lead in the seventh.

At the plate
Domonic Brown had a good night with an RBI groundout, a double, a two-run homer and two runs scored.

Darin Ruf drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. He also doubled and scored a run.

Grady Sizemore had a single, two doubles and a stolen base. He is 14 for 41 (.341) with four doubles in 11 games with the Phillies.

Ryan Howard sat out for the third straight game. The Phillies face a right-hander on Saturday night, so Howard could return to the lineup.

Sizemore reached 1,000 big-league hits with his first-inning single.

One more year
Jimmy Rollins’ plate appearance in the second inning was his 1,100th since the start of the 2013 season and that guaranteed his contract for $11 million next season.

Up next
Cliff Lee (4-5, 3.67) makes his second start since coming off the disabled list Saturday night. He will face Arizona right-hander Josh Collmenter (8-5, 3.64).
