DENVER -- Jake McGee was second-guessing himself after throwing a breaking pitch that cost the Colorado Rockies the game.Pinch-hitter Tommy Joseph turned on a slider from the hard-throwing reliever to hit a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied past the Colorado Rockies 5-3 on Friday night.Probably should have stuck with my best pitch, the fastball, McGee said. But I made that pitch and I hung it over the plate.Vince Velasquez (8-2) allowed two runs over six innings and won his third straight decision since coming off the 15-day disabled list with a right biceps strain on June 27. He struck out six and walked two on 98 pitches.The Phillies snapped a five-game losing streak to the Rockies.Rockies starter Jon Gray left the game with a 2-0 lead and runners on the corners with one out in the seventh. The Phillies put up four runs in their next two at-bats off McGee (0-3), starting with Cesar Hernandezs RBI single followed by Josephs home run to left field.I dont want to leave (Gray) in position to take a loss, Rockies manager Wat Weiss said of his decision to lift Gray. He had two base runners at that point. I like the matchup with McGee.Freddy Galvis scored on an error in the ninth to extend the lead to 5-3. Jeanmar Gomez got four outs to earn his 24th save.Gray struck out eight and walked two in one of his strongest outings of the year. Trevor Story drove in two runs and Carlos Gonzalez brought in another for Colorado.I was just locked in from the beginning, Gray said. I knew everything was going to work well judging by how I felt in the bullpen. I was ready to go in attack-mode.Storys second RBI of the game was a line-drive single off Andrew Bailey to trim the deficit to 4-3 in the seventh. Later in the inning, Mark Reynolds grounded out with the bases loaded off Hector Neris.CATCH OF THE NIGHTTyler Goeddel made a diving catch in left field of D.J. LeMahieus sinking blooper with a runner in scoring position in the eighth and the Phillies clinging to a 4-3 lead.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) participated in running drills for the first time since he went on the 15-day disabled list in the middle of June, Weiss said.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Jerad Eickhoff (6-9, 3.30 ERA) is 4-2 and has allowed three or fewer runs in his last seven starts.Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (0-3, 3.03 ERA) has been solid, but the Rockies have scored just four runs with him in the game in his five starts.

ATLANTA -- Rory McIlroy holed two shots on the 16th hole at East Lake that made him a most unlikely FedEx Cup champion on Sunday.The first one he didnt even see go in.Three shots behind with three holes to play at the Tour Championship, McIlroy holed a pitching wedge from 137 yards for eagle that gave him the spark he needed to close with a 6-under 64 and join a three-way playoff with the FedEx Cup title riding on the outcome.I knew I was right back in the golf tournament, he said.Four playoff holes later on the 16th, after Ryan Moore made a par putt from just outside 15 feet, McIlroy knocked in his 15-foot birdie putt to win two trophies that he desperately wanted -- the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup.Just to see that ball drop, and everything thats come together for me this year ... to pull it off was really special, McIlroy said, his voice still hoarse from screaming over so many quality shots, so many clutch moments over the final two hours at East Lake.McIlroy picked up $11.53 million in one day -- the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus and $1.53 million for the Tour Championship, his second victory in three weeks that made him the first player to win four FedEx Cup playoff events.His only hope was to win the Tour Championship and have Dustin Johnson finish worse than second alone. Johnson closed with a 73 and tied for sixth.In its 10th year, the FedEx Cup never had a finish like this.Moore, who got the last captains pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team later Sunday, missed an 8-foot birdie putt by the slimmest of margins on the par-5 18th hole in regulation for a 64. In the playoff, he holed a 10-foot birdie putt with McIlroy facing a 6-foot eagle putt for the victory. McIlroy missed.Even on the final hole, Moore gave McIlroy everything he had. His chip over a ridge raced well past the hole, and it looked as though McIlroy would only have to two-putt for the victory. Instead, Moore holed another big putt.I just wanted to make him earn it for that much money at least, Moore said. I wanted him to make the putt. It was nice to get up and make it, but you give a great player like him that many opportunities, and hes going to make one eventually.Chappell had a two-shot lead with two holes to play when he made bogey on the 17th hole -- only his third of the week at East Lake -- and Moore birdied it in the group ahead of himm.dddddddddddd Chappell was woefully short on a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th for the win, and he was eliminated with a par on the first playoff hole when he made par.They finished at 12-under 268.Johnson surprisingly was never a factor and he hit too many errant shots on the front nine and never recovered. He still would have won the FedEx Cup had either Moore or Chappell won the tournament, which he said would have been really cool.It didnt feel right because I didnt win the Tour Championship, Johnson said. Thats why I was here to win. I knew I controlled my own destiny.Johnson was second in the FedEx Cup and received a $3 million bonus.McIlroy had control of this all along once he got into the playoff, except for one nervous moment.He looked to put the perfect finish onto his big day when he hit out of the rough and over the water to 6 feet for an eagle putt on the par-5 18th in the first playoff hole. McIlroy was ready to pump his fist until his eagle putt slid by, and he removed his cap in disbelief.Returning to the 18th, McIlroy missed an 18-foot birdie putt for the win. On the third extra hole, the par-3 15th over the water from 201 yards, McIlroy had to make a 7-foot par putt just to stay in the game.Nothing was bigger than that birdie at the end. McIlroy stiffened his back, clutched both arms and shouted above the raucous cheers at East Lake.Ive made it no secret that its one of the last things I feel like I had left on my golf CV, and I made it a big goal of mine to win it, McIlroy said. To be here and to win the FedEx Cup ... to play the way I have in the last few weeks to get it done, is very special.It was the longest playoff in the 30-year history of the Tour Championship.Moore had to wait to see if his performance -- a 66-64 weekend at East Lake -- was worthy of a captains pick. It was, with captain Davis Love III giving him the spot on the 12-man team.Chappell headed into a month off trying to figure out what he has to do to win. He was runner-up for the fourth time this season -- twice to Jason Day, the No. 1 player in the world, and once to McIlroy. In those final rounds, Chappells scores were 67, 69, 69 and 66.Im proud of the way I fought, he said. It just wasnt enough.
