Victorino seals victory for Phils
Wickman can't save it

Slugger Ryan Howard's first career three-homer game, which included No. 50, was nearly spoiled after the bullpen let a late lead slip away, but Shane Victorino hit a walk-off RBI single in the ninth inning, setting off a wild celebration at Citizens Bank Park.
