PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chicago's Tyler 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.

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

One pitch after Soto connected, Colvin hit a drive to right-center. The ball hit off a male fan's hands and bounced into the crowd.

After Colvin circled the bases, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel came out to challenge the play. Umpires took several minutes to review it before ruling it a ground-rule double.
