MLB: Philadelphia 3, Los Angeles Dodgers 2

Aug. 18, 2013 at 5:39 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Hanley Ramirez committed a pair of errors in the ninth inning Sunday, allowing Pittsburgh to snap the Los Angeles Dodgers' 10-game wining streak, 3-2.

With the game tied 2-2 and one out in the bottom of the ninth, Casper Wells reached first when shortstop Ramirez committed a throwing error, then advanced to second when Carlos Ruiz singled against Brandon League (6-4).

Pinch-hitter Jimmy Rollins was intentionally walked to load the bases, bringing up another pinch-hitter, Michael Young.

Young then sent a routine grounder to Ramirez, who bobbled it, allowing Wells to cross the plate for the game-winner.

Ruiz went 4-for-4 and Darin Ruf smacked a solo homer as new Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg logged his first victory and Philadelphia avoided a three-game sweep.

Jonathan Papelbon (3-1) was credited with the win after tossing a scoreless top of the ninth.

Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a solo homer for the National League West-leading Dodgers, who lost for just the second time in August.
