SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Angel Pagan and Matt Duffy each drove in a pair of runs in the sixth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5 on Saturday night.

Brandon Crawford had three hits and drove in a run for the Giants, who have won three of four after a seven-game losing streak. Duffy, who had four hits in Friday night's victory, was a home run shy of the cycle for the second straight day.

Josh Osich (1-0) recorded the final out of the sixth and earned his first major league victory. Santiago Casilla got the final out for his 22nd save.

Ryan Howard hit a home run and drove in two and Cody Asche added a two-run shot for the Phillies, who have lost four straight and 14 of 17 overall. Freddy Galvis doubled and tripled and Odubel Herrera had two hits and drove in a run.

Luis Garcia (3-4) gave up three runs in 2-3 innings after allowing two over his previous 15 innings.
