DETROIT (AP) -- Odubel Herrera and Peter Bourjos homered off Anibal Sanchez, and the Philadelphia Phillies salvaged the finale of their three-game series with Detroit, beating the Tigers 8-5 on Wednesday. Detroit had won eight of nine, including the first two games of this set, but Herrera's three-run drive put Philadelphia up 5-1 in the fourth. Aaron Nola (4-3) and the Phillies were able to hold on from there.

Jeanmar Gomez pitched the ninth for his major league-leading 17th save in 18 chances.  

Sanchez (3-6) allowed three earned runs and eight hits in six-plus innings. The Tigers made two errors in the fourth before Herrera's two-out homer, so three runs were unearned.  

Philadelphia's Andres Blanco swiped home in the second as part of a double steal, with Bourjos taking second. Maikel Franco of the Phillies left in the seventh with a sprained right ankle. 

Nola allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings.
