DENVER — Brad Lidge stranded runners at first second base on a bitterly cold Sunday night when he got Troy Tulowitzki to fly out to shallow left field, preserving the Philadelphia Phillies’ 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies in Game 3 of their NL playoff series.

Huston Street allowed Ryan Howard’s sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth that scored Jimmy Rollins from third base with the tiebreaking run after another apparent blown call by the umpires.

The defending world champs lead the best-of-five series 2-1 and can wrap up the series Monday when they send Game 1 winner Cliff Lee to the mound to face Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez.
