LOS ANGELES – Yasmani Grandal showed the go-ahead and the Dodgers scored three goals in the eighth inning to beat Philadelphia 5-4 on Monday night, defeating Phillies manager Gabe Kappers return to Los Angeles Angeles
The Dodgers handed the Phillies their fourth defeat in last season's Chavez Ravine when Kapler served as director of player development before being lured east for his first major executive job. He had been a candidate for the opening of the Dodgers before Dave Roberts was hired.
Phillies starter Vince Velasquez took a no-hitter in the sixth before the Dodgers scored two goals to make it 4-2. She added three more runs in eighth.
Yimi Garcia (1-1) took the win, threw two goalless innings of relief and eliminated two. Kenley Jansen scored the ninth for his twelfth rescue.
The Dodgers have won nine out of 11 since May 17.
Adam Morgan (0-1) took the loss and allowed an unmerited run and two hits while he hit one in two-thirds relief.
Cesar Hernández beat a three-run homer in the second for the Phillies.
After 4-0, Velasquez gave up a single who went away from sixth to Yasiel Puig, who went down after a mistake by left-back Rhys Hoskins
After the resignation of Pinch-hitter Logan Forsythe, Velasquez allowed an RBI double against Joc Pederson, who bounced on the left field line, scoring Puig. Justin Turner's two-out RBI single chased Velasquez.
The Dodgers clinched a 4: 3 in the eighth on Pinch-Hitter Matt Kemp's RBI double, which saw Puig reach shortstop on an infield single. Max Muncy came up with a comebacker to Morgan who could not catch the ball and Kemp clapped as he crossed the plate.
Turner grounded in choosing a fielder to shortstop, with Muncy second and pinch hitter Enrique Hernandez, who reached a mistake from Cesar Hernandez at second base and finished third. Morgan's wild turf brought Turner to second place. Enrique Hernandez met Grandal's single, who went under the glove of shortstop Scott Kingery.
The Phillies jumped over all Dodgers starters Brock Stewart early. He gave up a run in a flaccid first inning before Cesar Hernandez sent Stewart's first playoff over the wall in the right field for a 4-0 lead in the second.
With one out of the first, Hoskins was initially safe due to interference from Catcher on Grandal. Hoskins moved to second place and then back to back to Odile Herrera and Carlos Santana. Hoskins scored as Stewart unleashed a wild field of play.
Stewart settled down and finished his last seven batteries.
The right-handed allowed four runs – three earned – and five hits in four innings during his second start of the season. Stewart hit five and left two. He will likely come off the turn when ASS Clayton Kershaw comes off the disability list to start the series finale Thursday.
Velasquez gave up two runs and three strokes in 5 2/3 innings, drew six and went two. 19659021] TRAINER ROOM
