Phillies Score 4 in 9th to Beat Marmol, Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Placido Polanco, just off the disabled list, hit a tying single with two outs in the ninth inning and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for four runs against wild closer Carlos Marmol to beat the Chicago Cubs 4-1 on Saturday.

Chad Durbin (1-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Brad Lidge got three outs for his seventh save in 10 tries.

Chicago won the first two games of the series and appeared on its way to making it three straight with a 1-0 lead. Marmol had struck out the side in the ninth Friday to get the save.

But pinch-hitters Brian Schneider and Ross Gload worked back-to-back walks with one out in the ninth Saturday against Marmol (2-2), who blew his fourth save in 21 chances.
