PHILADELPHIA -- Jimmy Rollins got the opportunity he wanted and delivered.

The Phillies snapped a seven-game home losing streak and avoided their first sweep against the Giants since 2004.
"I always look forward to it," Rollins said about clutch situations. "I've faced Brad Penny a lot. I had an idea what he wanted to do. That's not a role he's used to."
The five-time defending NL East champions are 10½ games behind Atlanta in the wild-card standings. But they're not looking ahead to next year just yet.
"We have the horses now, we're getting back to full strength and the pitchers have been doing a good job," Rollins said.
Kyle Kendrick (4-8) tossed 2 1/3 innings to earn the win and extended his career-best scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings.
Phillies starter Joe Blanton gave up three runs and seven hits in eight innings, increasing his trade value with another strong second-half start. Since 2008, Blanton has the best record in the majors after the All-Star break at 17-5.
The right-hander will be a free agent after the season, so the Phillies might move him before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline unless they start to make a run.
"Everybody here is trying to win games and play the best we can," Blanton said. "Anything that happens is out of our control."
San Francisco's Barry Zito allowed three runs and five hits, striking out seven in seven innings. Zito is having his best season for the Giants since signing a $126 million, seven-year contract in December 2006.
"I like how he's throwing the ball," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said.
After Mayberry gave the Phillies their first lead, 3-2, on his second homer in the seventh, Schierholtz answered with his second in the eighth. He hit a high drive to right to tie it at 3.
Mayberry drove a 3-2 pitch into the seats in left to tie it at 2 in the fourth. He hadn't driven in a run in his previous 39 at-bats, going back to June 24.
"At times, when he hits the ball, he's good," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.
Pablo Sandoval's RBI double to left-center gave the Giants a 2-1 lead in the fourth.
Schierholtz ripped a 2-0 pitch way out to right for his first career leadoff homer to give the Giants a 1-0 lead.
Chase Utley's RBI triple in the bottom half tied it at 1. Zito escaped a first-and-third, one-out jam by getting Pence to ground into his 13th double play.
Zito stranded runners on second and third in the third by striking out Ryan Howard on a 74 mph curveball.
