Josh Collmenter threw six scoreless innings, Aaron Hill drove in three runs with a homer and double and the Diamondbacks held on to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Friday night. Collmenter (1-2), in his third start since replacing Randall Delgado in the rotation, allowed four hits and struck out five.

"Just to get a few wins in a row, just to kind of get our feet back under us and have something to build off us is big as well," Collmenter said. A.J. Pollocks solo homer in the eighth provided what proved to be the deciding run for the Diamondbacks, who won at Chase Field for only the second time in 11 games this season. After what Hill called a "brutal" month, the Diamondbacks are showing some signs of life. Hill in particular, his bat coming alive in Chicago where he was 4-for-5 with the game-winning triple in the ninth in a 7-5 win over the Cubs on Wednesday. "Now I think a little bit of the pressures off," Hill said. "We know that were a good team and we can play well and win games like this." The Phillies scored a run on two-out singles by Ben Revere and Jimmy Rollins off Addison Reed in the ninth. Reed intentionally walked Chase Utley, then struck out John Mayberry Jr. for his sixth save -- three in the last three days.

But his location was superb, and he mixed in several curve balls, something hes added to his repertoire. "He was hitting both sides of the plate and stuck to his game plan," the Phillies Ryan Howard said. "He hit spots. That was key. We had a couple of good swings on him but just couldnt find any real estate." Roberto Hernandez (1-1) gave up four runs on seven hits in six innings, walking three and fanning five to take the loss.

Revere hit into a fielders choice and, with runners at first and third, Rollins flew out to left to end the inning. Arizona broke a scoreless tie in the fourth when Hill slammed a 1-0 pitch into the seats in left-centre. The Diamondbacks added two in the fifth. Paul Goldschmidts opposite-field single to right brought Gerardo Parra home. Hernandez walked Montero, then Hill hit an RBI ground-rule double to almost the same spot as his homer in left-centre and the Diamondbacks led 4-0. With Arizonas defence in a shift to the right, Howard singled to left off left-hander Oliver Perez with one out in the eighth. With Mayberry pinch running, Brad Ziegler came on and Byrd hit one sharply to left field, where Tony Campana was able to keep the ball from getting past him, saving a run in what Arizona manager Kirk Gibson called "the play of the game." Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg said Mayberry should have taken third on the play. "To me that is a first and third play," Sandberg said. "It might have been a double by Byrd."
