Ryan Howard's homer in 10th caps Phillies' rally

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ryan Howard hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning after Philadelphia scored six runs in the ninth, and the Phillies came back to stun the Cincinnati Reds 9-7 on Friday night.

Staked to a 7-1 lead by the ninth, Reds starter Mike Leake appeared to be cruising toward his first career complete game.

Then it all unraveled.

Greg Dobbs hit a three-run homer and pinch-hitter Cody Ransom followed with a tying, two-run shot off Francisco Cordero to make it 7-all.

Raul Ibanez opened the 10th with a double off Arthur Rhodes (3-3) and Howard went the opposite way for his 17th homer of the season.

Ryan Madson (2-0) tossed a scoreless inning for the win.

Brian Schneider hit a game-ending homer in the 12th inning to give the Phillies a win over the Reds on Thursday.
