Howie Kendrick had three hits to help the Dodgers win for the fifth time in six games.
Jeff Francoeur homered for Philadelphia. The Phillies lost for only the fourth time in their last 17 games. They still have the worst record in baseball at 42-66.
Anderson (6-6) won for the first time since July 1. He allowed four hits, struck out five and walked two.
