Vance Worley pitched five innings allowing five of the Mariners’ six hits including a run allowed while striking out three and walking two. 

The Phillies got to Mariners ace Felix Hernandez or known as King Felix early, scoring a run in the first inning on a Ryan Howard sacrifice fly that scored Jimmy Rollins. They would not score again until the seventh on a bases loaded two-run double to take the lead 3-1.  Shane would also add more insurance runs by adding a two-run home run in the eighth. He was a single shy of the cycle. 

Michael Stutes got his first major league win after his one and two-thirds innings where he walked two and struck out one. Antonio Bastardo was perfect in his inning and a third. 

It wasn’t a save situation, Madson came on for the final frame to get some work.  He struck out Ichiro Suzuki for the final out. 

The Phillies will close out their series with Seattle on Sunday at 4:10 when Cole Hamels (9-2) heads to the mound to face Jason Vargas (4-4).
