Altherr's RBI hit gives Phils 3-2 win and sweep over Pirates

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Aaron Altherr's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Phillies to a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday, giving Philadelphia its first four-game sweep over the Pirates in 24 years.

Andrew Knapp hit an opposite-field triple off the left-field wall with one out off Rich Rodriguez (0-1). With the infield in, Altherr lined a 1-2 pitch to left for his third hit. He raised his hand in the air, ran to first and got mobbed by teammates.

The Phillies have won 13 of 16 since a 1-4 start and are seven games over .500 for the first time since they were 24-17 on May 18, 2016. They finished 71-91 that season and lost 96 games last year.
