DETROIT, June 9 (UPI) -- Marlon Anderson's two-out infield single in the fourth inning snapped a tie Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies swept past the reeling Detroit Tigers, 7-5.
With runners on second and third and two out, Anderson hit a slow ground ball toward Damion Easley at second base. Anderson was able to beat out, allowing Travis Lee to score.
Lee led off the inning with a single off Tigers starter Steve Sparks, who walked Pratt to put runners on first and second. Ricky Ledee sacrificed both runners before Jimmy Rollins grounded out with the infield in, setting the stage for Anderson.
Anderson also tripled in a run and scored in the first for the Phillies, who earned their first road sweep of the season.
Brandon Duckworth (3-4) allowed four runs -- one earned -- in six innings for his first win since May 3, a span of six starts.
Jose Mesa pitched a perfect ninth for his 17th save in 20 chances.
Sparks (3-6) allowed seven runs and nine hits in just 4 1/3 innings for his first loss at home since April 9.
The Tigers have dropped six straight games.
