Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Carlos Ruiz and Michael Young each hit a two-run home run as the Philadelphia Phillies snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 7-3 win over the San Francisco Giants to open a three-game set.

John Mayberry added a pair of RBI and scored a run, while Delmon Young went 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Phillies, who returned home following a disastrous 1-8 road trip.

John Lannan (3-4) pitched seven innings in the win, giving up three runs on three hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts.

Barry Zito (4-8) continued to struggle as he gave up four runs on five hits in just 3 1/3 innings. The lefty has not won since May 30 as he is 0-5 in his past 10 starts, and has failed to pitch past the fifth inning in five of those games.

Pablo Sandoval drove in a pair of runs and Joaquin Arias had an RBI for the Giants, who have lost five straight and eight of nine.
