PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Geovany Soto hit a tying homer off Ryan Madson with one out in the ninth and Tyler Colvin scored from second on a throwing error in the 11th to lift the Chicago Cubs over the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Thursday night.

Colvin’s go-ahead homer in the ninth was overturned by umpires after replays showed a fan wearing a Phillies T-shirt reached over the fence and interfered with the ball.

But the Cubs still won their second straight after losing eight in a row.

Sean Marshall (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings. Carlos Marmol worked the 11th for his 12th save in 16 chances.

Colvin snapped an 0-for-34 slump with his hit off Madson, who had been 14 for 14 in save chances before allowing Soto’s tying solo homer.
