Batting fifth behind behind Pat Burrell, Utley had a solo homer and RBI double among his three hits. He also made what looked to be a costly blunder on the bases.
After Utley's double pulled the Phillies within 4-2 in the seventh, he was thrown out trying to advance to third on a ball in the dirt with David Bell at the plate. Bell wound up hitting a homer to make it a one-run game.
But in the eighth, Utley redeemed himself when he reached on a grounder to the shortstop that snapped a 4-4 tie. Playing second base in place of Placido Polanco, who is on the disabled list, Utley is eight for 18 with three homers and 11 RBI in his last five games.
