Phillies beat Dodgers pitching again, 10. Won 12-10 in

LOS ANGELES ( Associated Press) — No team in the Majors has hit the Los Angeles Dodgers as effectively this season as the Philadelphia Phillies during back-to-back victories at Chavez Ravine.

And he didn’t give up even after Justin Turner dramatically propelled the Dodgers into extra innings.

Nick Castellanos scored a two-run double during the Phillies’ 10th inning of three, and Philadelphia overcame the sloping Dodgers’ pitching staff for a second straight game in a 12-10 win on Friday night.

Bryce Harper hit an RBI double in the sixth and a single homer in the eighth for Phillips, who scored 27 hits and 21 runs by the ERA in his first two games against the NL’s top staff. This is a tremendously encouraging development for a team that has been aggressively sitting in the middle of the major league pack until last week on the West Coast.

“We know they are really good,” said manager Joe Girardi, whose team has scored 38 runs in the last five games, all on the road. “Their staff is fantastic. Our guys are just batting, and they’ve done a really good job. We think we’ve done a really good offense, and at times we struggled this year, but we think it’s going to be a good one.” Going on a road trip. … We know we have a bunch of talented hitters. We feel that way.”

Turner hit a two-run homer in the ninth and scored four for the Dodgers, but they lost three straight for the first time since July 21–23, 2021, as they could not cool off Phils’ bat.

Kyle Schwarber homemade, rookie Bryson Stott scored a career-high three runs and Castellanos also had three RBIs.

When asked why the Phillies were fighting against Los Angeles, Castellanos admitted he had no idea. He was more impressed with his team’s position after taking a late lead of two runs.

“We’ve been doing really well for the last few games,” Castellanos said. “I don’t know if getting to know each other better is part of it, but it’s fun.”

Los Angeles rallied to play extra innings against Juris Familia (1–0). Tree Turner got a leadoff single in the ninth, and Justin Turner detonated a one-out splitter in the left field bleachers.

In the 10th, Philadelphia started a rally from Brusadar Greaterol (0–2), which was highlighted by Castellanos’ double to left. Castellanos also finished third and scored on a throwing error.

The Dodgers then loaded bases with none against Francisco Morales, a 22-year-old right-hander making his second major league appearance. Morales scored three, but fielded Mookie Bates in a double play before leaving Freddie Freeman in second on Tree Turner’s grounder.

“We knew we would have some people who really needed to step up tonight, and a lot of people did,” Girardi said. “That’s a huge question (for Morales).”

Chris Taylor made home for the Dodgers, but they fell back to first place with San Diego half a game behind the NL West with San Francisco. Taylor veered off the warning track to finish in ninth place.

The Dodgers conceded at least six runs for the second straight game after being allowed to score just as many runs in their first 29 games.

“We just weren’t pitching well, but that’s not who we are,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “I haven’t seen it in my time here, but it’s one we have to wash off. … It’s good to see our guys fight back and keep scoring runs and making it a game and in their ‘pen’ Dive deep.

Walker Buehler struggled after abruptly extending his scheduled start from Saturday to replace Clayton Kershaw, who went on the injured list on Friday morning. Giving away five runs in five innings, Buehler has given nine hits – his most allowed in 72 appearances since July 3, 2019.

“We weren’t very effective on that side of the ball today,” said Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes. “They are aggressive. They have good hitters in their lineup. We just didn’t do enough. We put ourselves in a bad position and had to come after the hitters.

Kyle Gibson conceded eight hits and six runs while failing to get out of the fourth inning for the Phillies. His bullpen was quick until Familia had to step up with Corey Nebel as he was unavailable for the last two days.

MVP qualified

Harper had three hits in his second straight Monster game as a designated hitter as the Phillies revealed Thursday that he has a partially torn elbow ligament and will not throw for a month. The two-time NL MVP went 2 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs on Thursday.

Phillies: Jean Segura sat outside to rest, Girardi said.

Dodgers: Kershaw suffers back pain from swollen pelvic joint, He had an epidural painkiller injection and won’t throw up for a few days, but Roberts is optimistic that his veteran left-hander will be back in a couple of weeks.


Julio Urias (2-2, 2.10 ERA) moves on to start the third game of the series for the Dodgers, albeit on a regular rest. He faces Philadelphia Ranger Suarez (3-1, 3.68 ERA), who had six scoreless innings on his last start.
