Nola fans 10, Kingery drives in 4 as Phils beat Rockies 5-4

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Aaron Nola never gets flustered, even when he's riding a stationary bike while the closer fights to protect the lead.

Nola struck out 10 in another dominant performance, Scott Kingery hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Seranthony Dominguez escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the ninth for his third save.

''I just take it pitch by pitch,'' Nola said.

Nola (8-2) allowed one run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.27. He has given up three runs or less in 13 of 14 starts.

''He's a special kind of competitor,'' manager Gabe Kapler said. ''He's fun to watch.''

Nola left after striking out Ian Desmond with runners on first and third. Edubray Ramos entered and gave up a bloop RBI single to Tom Murphy before recording the third out. Tommy Hunter tossed a scoreless eighth. But Luis Garcia allowed four consecutive singles to start the ninth. He departed after Murphy's RBI single cut it to 5-2.

Dominguez entered and gave up an RBI single to pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta. DJ LeMahieu's sacrifice fly cut it to 5-4. But right fielder Aaron Altherr ran down Charlie Blackmon's hard liner for the second out and Dominguez struck out Nolan Arenado to end it.

''I was thankful to get the job done,'' Dominguez said.

Kapler called Altherr's running catch a ''game-saver.''

''That play was sensational,'' he said.

Kingery drove a 1-2 pitch from Jon Gray (6-7) out to left-center to give the Phillies a 3-0 lead in the first. He added a sacrifice fly in the third.

Gray surrendered four runs on only three hits in six innings. He also fanned 10.

''I had no rhythm early and it cost me,'' Gray said.

Jesmuel Valentin's pinch-hit RBI single in the eighth extended Philadelphia's lead to 5-1.

The Phillies have won two in a row for the first time since a three-game winning streak May 13-17.

The Rockies have lost five straight and nine of 11.

After starting at five positions, Kingery has taken over as Philadelphia's regular shortstop despite batting only .215. J.P. Crawford has moved to third base since returning from the disabled list and has started five straight games instead of Maikel Franco.

''It's been a process,'' Kingery said. ''Just trying to go step by step to where I feel better in the box.''

WHIFFS

This was the first time a Phillies starter and opposing starter each struck out 10 or more in the same game since April 25, 2011, at Arizona when Cliff Lee had 12 and Ian Kennedy had 10.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Rockies: OF Carlos Gonzalez was back in the lineup after missing two games with a rib issue. ... RHP Adam Ottavino threw a live batting practice session. He has been sidelined by a left oblique strain.

Phillies: RHP Jerad Eickhoff received a cortisone shot in his right wrist on Monday. Eickhoff hasn't pitched this season. ... Reliever Pat Neshek threw a bullpen session Tuesday. He began the season on the DL with a shoulder strain and sustained a flexor strain in his elbow during rehab. ... Utilityman Pedro Florimon could return in September after breaking his right foot during the team's recent road trip.

UP NEXT

RHP Nick Pivetta (4-5, 3.76 ERA) starts for the Phillies while LHP Tyler Anderson (3-1, 4.81) goes for the Rockies in the middle game Wednesday night.
