Scoring five runs in the eighth inning Tuesday night, the Philadelphia Phillies won the first of a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants.

The rally in the eighth inning was started by Shane Victorino with a single. He then would steal second base one pitch before Mike Sweeney drew a walk.

Raul Ibanez then singled to right field before Carlos Ruiz smacked a double down the left-field line to plate Victorino and Sweeney.

Ross Gload, making his first appearance since injuring his groin, then grounded out on the first pitch by new Giants pitcher Ramon Ramirez.

Jimmy Rollins then singled to score Ibanez.

Then a balk was issued to Ramirez scoring Ruiz and advancing Rollins to second base.

San Francisco Giants Manager Bruce Bochy was promptly ejected for arguing the call.

Utley reaches first base on a throwing error by Giants second baseman Mike Fontenot and advanced to second base on the play as Rollins easily scored.

The Phillies would not score again in the inning but did manage to bat around.

Roy Oswalt pitched seven innings for his second win as a Philadelphia Phillie.
