Michael Conforto homered, singled and drove in three runs to lift the host San Francisco Giants past the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Monday

Casey Schmitt added two hits while Mitch Haniger and Brandon Crawford each had an RBI single for the Giants, who snapped a three-game losing streak

The Giants had 10 hits overall

Giants starter Alex Wood gave up four hits and two runs with four strikeouts and one walk in 4 2/3 innings

Scott Alexander (3-0) earned the win in relief and Camilo Doval pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his ninth save.

Doval walked Brandon Marsh to open the ninth and Kody Clemens struck out. Bryson Stott lined out to third on a terrific leaping catch by J.D. Davis and Trea Turner popped out to first in foul ground to end the game.

Alec Bohm hit a home run, double, sacrifice fly and had three RBI for the Phillies, who have dropped two in a row following a five-game winning streak

The Phillies went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position

Pressed into a rare starting role, Connor Brogdon allowed two hits in only 2/3 of an inning and was replaced by Bailey Falter with two outs and the bases loaded. Falter (0-7) then tossed 4 1/3 innings and allowed eight hits and six runs, though none were earned.

The Phillies went ahead 2-0 in the second inning when Bohm launched a two-run home run to left-center field

The Giants responded with six runs in the bottom of the second as Wilmer Flores lofted a sacrifice fly to right and Conforto ripped a three-run homer to left. Haniger and Crawford each added an RBI single as the Giants batted around
