PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Michael Young hit the winning single with one out in the ninth inning after Carlos Ruiz tied the game with a double, pushing the Philadelphia Phillies past the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Erik Kratz opened the ninth with a double off Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt (2-4). Pinch runner Casper Wells advanced to third on a grounder and scored the tying run on Ruiz's pinch-hit double to left. Jimmy Rollins was walked intentionally and Young followed with the winning single to left.

Jake Diekman (1-3) tossed a scoreless ninth for the win.

The Phillies stormed out of the dugout and mobbed Young for the biggest celebration yet in six games under interim manager Ryne Sandberg.
