Phillies Swept By Dodgers to Continue Slide

Aaron Harang got his 100th career victory as Los Angeles overcame a two-run, sixth-inning deficit, and the Dodgers won 8-3 Thursday to complete their first four-game sweep at the Philadelphia Phillies in 66 years.

Harang (5-3) allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings, improving to 100-98 in 11 big league seasons. The Dodgers had not swept a four-game series at Philadelphia since Brooklyn accomplished the feat from May 24-26, 1946, according to STATS LLC.

Cole Hamels (8-3) led 3-1 in the sixth when he walked Elian Herrera leading off. Juan Rivera singled and, one out later, James Loney singled to cut the deficit to one. Tony Gwynn Jr.’s single tied the score, and Matt Treanor’s single on a broken-bat flare to left put Los Angeles ahead 4-3.

Philadelphia has lost a season-high six straight and has the NL’s worst home record at 12-19.
