SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Andrew Susac hit a three-run homer to back Chris Heston's superb start, and the San Francisco Giants rolled past the last-place Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

Heston (9-5) allowed one run and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked none to help send the reigning World Series champions into the All-Star break on a high note.

Santiago Casilla gave up a run in the ninth for his 23rd save in 27 chances.

Buster Posey and Angel Pagan each singled three times, and Susac's homer highlighted a four-run fourth against Chad Billingsley (1-3) that handed Philadelphia its fifth consecutive defeat.

The Phillies (29-62) set the franchise record for the most losses before the All-Star break, surpassing the previous mark of 61 in 1997.
