Phillies close in on Reds

Phillies close in on Reds

Chase Utley helped Philadelphia erase a four-run deficit by driving in a pair Friday, and the Phillies defeated the Cincinnati Reds 7-4 to come within a game of claiming the NLDS.

The Phillies won Game 2 as -189 favorites, and the 11 runs made it OVER the posted over/under (7.5) set by sportsbooks.

Jose Contreras earned the win in relief of starter Roy Oswalt, and Brad Lidge tossed a scoreless ninth for his first save of the postseason.

Brandon Phillips homered for the Reds, while Aroldis Chapman gave up three runs in relief in the loss.
