PHILADELPHIA — Brandon Crawford hit a bases-clearing double to break a 14th-inning stalemate and Tim Lincecum earned his first career save as the San Francisco Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-6 on Tuesday night.

Crawford snapped a 2-for-22 skid with his two-out hit off the wall in left-center field and finished with four RBIs. Buster Posey, who doubled and scored in the 14th, sent the game into extras with a solo homer in the ninth off Jonathan Papelbon, who blew his third save.

George Kontos (3-0) earned the win for the second straight night. Lincecum, San Francisco’s ninth pitcher, got the final two outs for the save. Jeff Manship (1-2) surrendered four runs and lost.

The Giants (56-44) improved to 8-2 in extra-inning games and 6-0 on the road. The Phillies (43-57) fell to 6-7.

Posey had four hits, including two doubles, two runs and an RBI. Hunter Pence had three hits, including a fifth-inning homer. Pence is a lifetime .353 hitter with 14 homers in 34 games against Philadelphia.

Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer in the fifth, giving him five homers and 13 RBIs in his last 10 games.

Marlon Byrd had a pair of RBIs on a double and a groundout and made a great leaping catch into the right-field wall to rob Gregor Blanco of extra bases in the sixth.

Yusmeiro Petit, making a spot start for injured Matt Cain, allowed seven hits across five innings, struck out five and walked two.

Roberto Hernandez limited San Francisco to three runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings, walked three and struck out one.

Ken Giles allowed one run in the seventh after entering the game with a 14 2/3-innings scoreless streak.

Ben Revere had three hits and two stolen bases.

NOTES: Philadelphia is 6-7 in extra-inning games. … Giants 2B Joe Panik was pulled in the second inning. He suffered a right ankle sprain while running out a grounder in the first inning and is considered day-to-day. … Philadelphia placed outfielder John Mayberry Jr. on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with left wrist inflammation and recalled outfielder Darin Ruf from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. … San Francisco OF Angel Pagan (back) took swings off a tee Monday, manager Bruce Bochy said. Pagan has not played since June 14. … One day after returning from a two-month DL stint because of a strained left elbow, Phillies LHP Cliff Lee felt fine Tuesday. “Some ordinary soreness in his legs,” manager Ryne Sandberg said. “Nothing with the arm at all.” … Giants 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) is progressing slowly and could start taking swings in a couple days, Bochy said. … Wednesday night, Phillies RHP A.J. Burnett (6-9, 4.08) opposes Giants LHP Madison Bumgarner (11-7, 3.38) in the third game of this four-game set.
