ST. LOUIS, July 22 (UPI) -- Placido Polanco hit an 11th-inning home run and the Philadelphia pitching staff allowed just one hit in a 2-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Polanco led off the 11th with his sixth home run of the season, saddling Kyle McClellan (1-3) with the loss. The Phillies scratched out another run, with Jayson Werth doubling in Raul Ibanez for the 2-0 lead.
Five Philadelphia pitchers combined on the one-hitter. Starter Cole Hamels walked one, as did Brad Lidge, who pitched the 11th and picked up his eighth save.
Hamels lasted eight innings, striking out seven. He retired the first 12 batters he faced. Matt Holliday led off the St. Louis fifth with a single but was doubled off first on a fly out to center.
The Cardinals didn't have another base runner until a walk with two outs in the eighth. Lidge's walk to Jon Jay opening the 11th was St. Louis's only other batter to reach base.
Chad Durbin (2-1), who followed Ryan Madson (one inning) and J.C. Romero (one-third of an inning) got two outs in the 10th and collected the win.
