Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon came in a promptly surrendered a two-run single to Blanks.

He went to second when Jesus Guzman was hit by a pitch, took third on a double-play grounder and scored the equalizer when catcher Carlos Ruiz committed a passed ball.

In the 10th, the Padres loaded the bases with one out against Justin De Fratus (2-1) and Blanks (4-for-5) then lined a hit over third base, chasing home Chris Denorfia with the winning run.

Joe Thatcher (3-1) got the decision for San Diego, which took the first of a three-game series.

Lee ending up allowing two runs on eight hits over eight full innings for Philadelphia, which began a 10-game road trip with a stunning loss.

Ruiz and John Mayberry each had three hits and Chase Utley homered for the Phils.
