Phillies Survive Another Dodgers Comeback, Win 12-10 in 10 innings – Los Angeles

Nick Castellanos had a two-run double during the Phillies’ three-run 10th inning, and Philadelphia battered the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers’ pitching staff for the second straight game in a 12-10 victory Friday night.

Justin Turner drove in four runs and hit a tiebreaking two-run homer for the Dodgers in the ninth. This is the Dodgers’ first loss in three games since July 21-23 2021.

Bryce Harper scored a tiebreaking RBI triple in the sixth, and a solo homer to the eighth for the Phillies. They have 27 hits and 21 runs against the NL’s top pitching staff at Chavez Ravine. Kyle Schwarber hit a home run, while rookie Bryson Stott drove up three runs for his career. Castellanos had three RBIs.

Philadelphia rallied against Brusdar Graterol (0-2) and overcame Turner’s heroics. Castellanos’ second to left was the highlight of this rally. Castellanos took third place and scored on a throwing mistake.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the 10th against Francisco Morales. A 22-year-old right-hander, Morales made his second appearance in the big league. Mookie Betts grounded into a double to make it 12-10. Morales’ first career save came when Trea Turner grounded out Freddie Freeman at third.

Chris Taylor also hit a home run for the Dodgers. However, they fell back into a tie with San Diego at top of the NL West. San Francisco was a half-game behind.

The Dodgers were able to rally to force extra innings against Jeurys Family (1-0), a former Mets closer who was trying to get his first save for his new team. Trea Turner scored the leadoff hit in the ninth. Justin Turner then blasted a one out splitter into the left-field bleachers to tie the game.

Taylor flew out to the warning track in the ninth.

Harper had three hits in his second straight monster game as a designated hitter since the Phillies revealed Thursday that he has a partially torn elbow ligament and won’t throw for a month. Harper went 2 for 4 on Thursday with a homer, three RBIs and a win as the NL MVP.

Los Angeles has the NL’s best team ERA by a significant margin, but it got another night of uncharacteristically poor pitching — this time from ace Walker Buehler and his bullpen — against Philadelphia’s middle-of-the-pack offense. After allowing six runs in their 29 first games, the Dodgers allowed at least six more runs in this second game.

Buehler had a difficult time after abruptly shifting his scheduled start to Saturday to replace Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was placed on the injured roster Friday morning. While yielding five runs over five innings, Buehler gave up nine hits — his most allowed in 72 appearances since July 3, 2019.

The Phillies got off to a slow start with Kyle Gibson giving up eight hits and six earned runs. Familia was unable to pitch due to his previous two days of work and so Familia took over the closer role.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Phillies: Jean Segura was laid down to rest, Joe Girardi stated.

Kershaw has a Dodger: Kershaw An inflamed pelvic region can cause back pain. He was given an epidural pain relief injection, and he won’t throw for at least a few days. But manager Dave Roberts is hopeful that the veteran left-hander will soon return to throwing in a few weeks.

UP NEXT

Julio Urías (2-2, 2.10 ERA) moves up to start the third game of the series for the Dodgers, albeit on regular rest. He faces Philadelphia’s Ranger Suárez (3-1, 3.68 ERA), who pitched six scoreless innings in his last start.
