Jayson Werth and Carlos Ruiz hit early three-run homers and Pedro Martinez tossed six effective innings in his return to New York as a Phillie, but it was Eric Bruntlett who secured the win, turning the first game-ending unassisted triple play in National League history and only the second in Major League history.
