SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joc Pederson drove in three runs, driving a loaded walk that broke a sixth-inning tie and sent the San Francisco Giants past the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 on Saturday.

The Giants earned their second straight win after a seven-game losing streak. The Phillies have lost five of six.

Pederson had two hits to continue his strong streak against the contending Phillies. On Friday night, he homered and drove in five runs in a 13-1 fight.

The Philadelphia pitchers again had trouble with their control – a day after issuing 10 walks, they walked three batters in the sixth. With the score 3-all and the bases loaded with two outs, reliever Brad Hand (3-2) edged Pederson in the 0-2 count, then walked him to force the go-ahead run.

Kyle Schwarber tripled against John Brebbia to lead the Phillies seventh, but was blocked. Jarlin Garcia relieved with two outs, walked Bryce Harper and retired JT Realmuto to protect the lead.

Zack Littell (2-2) got one out in the sixth. Camilo Doval, the Giants’ seventh pitcher, worked a perfect ninth for his 19th save.

Jean Segura hit two doubles for the Phillies, including a hit in the sixth that made it 3-all. Bryson Stott homered for Philadelphia.

Pederson hit RBI singles in the third and fifth innings.

The two starting pitchers went only 4 1/3 innings and each allowed seven hits. Noah Syndergaard allowed three earned runs for the Phillies and Jakob Junis allowed two earned runs for the Giants.
