PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Ronnie Belliard misplayed Scott Rolen’s bases-loaded grounder in the 12th inning, allowing Doug Glanville to score as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 Thursday night.

Glanville singled off Mike DeJean (2-1) with one out and took third on Jimmy Rollins’ double down the left-field line. Bobby Abreu was intentionally walked and Rolen hit a sharp grounder up the middle.

It looked like a potential double-play ball but bounced off the glove of Belliard, Milwaukee’s second baseman.

Philadelphia stopped its three-game losing streak and Milwaukee’s five-game winning streak.

The Phillies’ bullpen pitched five scoreless innings, giving up just one hit _ off Wayne Gomes (3-1) in the 12th.

Milwaukee starter Paul Rigdon allowed one run and four hits in six innings. Philadelphia’s Randy Wolf tied a season-high with 10 strikeouts _ six called _ giving up one run and five hits in seven innings.

Jeromy Burnitz hit an RBI double in the sixth that just cleared the outstretched glove of left fielder Brian Hunter.

Hunter had an RBI single in the bottom half following Rolen’s two-out double.

With two on and one out in the ninth, Gary Bennett hit a hard liner off David Weathers that was caught by left fielder Devon White and pinch-hitter Rob Ducey grounded out.

Notes: Milwaukee’s Tony Fernandez was a late scratch due to a bruised big toe on his left foot. He is day to day. ... Glanville extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a single in the 12th inning. He was 1-for-6. ... Plate umpire Eric Cooper split his pants in the first inning and had to chance them. ... Belliard was 0-for-2 with a walk against Wolf and is 1-for-13 off him in his career. ... The announced attendance of 12,433 was the largest of the three-game series.
