Struggling Phillies Edged By Dodgers
Dee Gordon hit a go-ahead single to back Chris Capuano and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the struggling Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 on Wednesday night.
Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Ty Wigginton homered for the Phillies, who have lost a season-worst five straight games.
Capuano (8-2) gave up four runs and four hits in five innings in one of his least effective starts this season. The lefty has a 2.82 ERA and is tied for the most wins in the majors.
Three relievers combined for three scoreless innings before Kenley Jansen finished for his ninth save, including three in this series.
