Matt Gelb answers your question:
Phillies were without Adams, Bastardo and De Fratus. Papelbon only if a save.
Charlie on Horst in the 9th: "When I looked at it, I figured Horst might have a hard time."
He knew Horst would struggle vs righties, but his bp is a MASH unit apparently. And god forbid he uses his closer in a tie game on the road. So Chuck's thought process is "We've got a good shot to lose this game if I leave Horst in, but I gotta go by the book and not use my best reliever."
