Dodgers Slide continues as Bryce Harper, Phillies Bash LA 8-3 – NBC Los Angeles

Bryce Harper scored at Dodger Stadium for the third straight game and finished with three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies went deep four times in an 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday night.

Jean Segura, Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins also hit home runs for Dodgers starter Julio Urías (2-3). Philadelphia – who have won four in a row and five of the last six – are looking for their first four-game sweep at Chavez Ravine since 1985 on Sunday.

Ranger Suárez (4-1) made seven innings and won for the third time in his last four matches.

Mookie Betts hit a solo pitch for Los Angeles, which dropped four times in a row for the first time since last June.

Harper landed a three-run shot to Urías’ right field to increase the Phillies’ lead to 6-1 in the third inning. It is the eighth time in Harper’s career that he has scored at least three straight games and the first since August 2019.

He also had a first-inning double for seven extra-base hits in the first three games. This tied him with Adrian Gonzalez in a three-game spell at Chavez Ravine. Gonzalez did this while playing for the Dodgers in 2015.

Harper is 14-23 with nine extra-base hits and nine RBIs during Philadelphia’s six-game trip.

Segura extended his hit streak to 11 games in the first inning with a three-run home run that barely went over the short fence in the left corner of the field. Schwarber and Hoskins added individual shots in the fourth to extend the lead to 8-1.

The Dodgers responded at the bottom of fourth in a two-run double at Cody Bellinger’s right-field line with bases loaded.

FOR STARTERS

Suárez threw 102 shots, the second consecutive game he has passed the century mark. The southpaw – who retired the last 11 hitters he faced – allowed three runs on five hits and knocked out six.

Urías missed four home runs, his career record, surpassing the three he allowed in his rookie season in 2016. Five of the southpaw’s eight runs allowed were in eight hits with three strikeouts.

Bellinger’s home run was the 31st he had in his career, including 11 with the Dodgers.

COACH ROOM

Phillies: Coach Joe Girardi said SS/2B Bryson Stott wasn’t on the team because the southpaws struggled against Urías this season.

Dodgers: RHP Blake Treinen (inflamed right shoulder) said he’s still experiencing discomfort and doesn’t have a timeline for when he’ll be able to pick up a baseball to play again.

THE WEST PASSES

The Phillies announced before the game that former pitcher David West, who was part of the 1993 World Series team, had died of brain cancer. He was 57 years old.

West had a 10-year majors career with the New York Mets, Minnesota Twins, Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox. He pitched for the Phillies from 1993-96.

NEXT

Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (1-4, 3.83 ERA) has not had a win since his first start to the season. The Dodgers have not announced their starter for Sunday’s series finale.
