Phillies batter Dodgers’ pitching again, win 12-10 in 10

LOS ANGELES (AP) — No team in the majors has hit the Los Angeles Dodgers this season as effectively as the Philadelphia Phillies did during back-to-back victories at Chavez Ravine.

And they didn’t even let up after Justin Turner dramatically propelled the Dodgers into extra innings.

Nick Castellanos had a two-run double during the Phillies’ three-run 10th inning, and Philadelphia battered the slumping Dodgers’ pitching staff for the second straight game in a 12-10 victory Friday night.

Bryce Harper hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the sixth and a solo homer in the eighth for the Phillies, who have 27 hits and 21 runs in their first two games against the NL’s top staff by ERA. It’s a tremendously encouraging development for a team that sat in the middle of the major league pack offensively until the past week on the West Coast.
