Schneider snapped a seventh inning tie with a three-run homer and Javier Vazquez (5-2) won for the fourth time in five decisions as Montreal posted a 5-3 win over the Phillies in the rubber game of their three-game series.
The left-handed hitting Schneider came into the game hitting just .234 with four homers and 10 RBI in 77 at bats but was batting .333 (8-for-24) from the seventh inning on. Among those eight late hits were a 10th inning home run that won a game on April 18th and an RBI infield single that was the difference in a game 11 days later.
On Sunday, Schneider snapped a 2-2 tie with a three-run shot to right field against Phillies reliever Dan Plesac. Schneider has three home runs in 13 at bats against left-handers this season.
Vazquez allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, walking one and striking out eight, improving to 8-3 lifetime against the Phillies. Scott Stewart and Luis Ayala combined to get through the eighth, allowing one run on back-to-back doubles by Marlon Byrd and Placido Polanco. Rocky Biddle worked around a single in the ninth to notch his 14th save.
The Phillies scored two runs in the second on Jason Michaels first homerun of the season.
Phils starter Brett Myers (4-4) allowed four runs in 6 2/3 innings, walking two and striking out five but was pulled in favor of Plesac with Schneider coming to the plate in the seventh.
