Filling in for injured ace Cliff Lee, Buchanan (1-0) gave the struggling Phillies a lift. The 25-year-old righty allowed two runs and five hits, striking out two.

Ben Revere went 4 for 4 in his first game leading off since May 14 and Jimmy Rollins drove in two runs to help the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak.

Jonathan Papelbon tossed a scoreless ninth for his 13th save in 14 tries.

Dodgers starter Dan Haren (5-3) gave up five runs — two earned — and six hits, striking out seven in six innings.
