CHICAGO (AP) — Michael Young had four hits, including a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday in Ryne Sandberg’s return to Wrigley Field.

Kevin Frandsen had two hits and scored two runs after entering in the sixth, helping Philadelphia bounce back from Thursday’s 11-3 loss to the New York Mets. Chase Utley added a key two-run triple.

The Phillies improved to 9-6 since Sandberg was promoted to interim manager when Charlie Manuel was fired on Aug. 16. The Hall of Fame second baseman spent most of his playing career with the Cubs and was cheered all day long in his first trip to Chicago since he was elevated to the top spot in Philadelphia.

Anthony Rizzo and Nate Schierholtz homered for the Cubs, who blew a 5-0 lead. Starlin Castro had two hits and two RBIs in Chicago’s fourth loss in five games.

Roger Bernadina used his speed to set up Young’s winning hit. He was hit by a pitch from Kevin Gregg (2-4) with one out, swiped second and raced home when Young’s blooper landed in front of Schierholtz in right field.

B.J. Rosenberg (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win and Jonathan Papelbon got three outs for his 23rd save. Utley made a great diving stop and throw on Schierholtz’s grounder to second to end the game.
