LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dodger Stadium has always been one of Bryce Harper’s favorite venues.
The two-time MVP NL debuted here in the major leagues in 2012, and he also likes it because he can see family and friends coming from Las Vegas.
During the first three games of the series over the weekend, Philadelphia quarterback Phyllis gave family members and Los Angeles Dodgers staff a run they won’t soon forget.
Harper finished third in a row Saturday night and finished with three shots in an 8-3 win. It was part of a barrier in which Phyllis deepened four times and reached 0.500 (17-17) for the first time since April 13th.
“He’s in a great place. He is very important to our attack. We have other guys in good places, which really helps, ”said Phillies manager Joe Girardi.
Harper also had a double, making him the first guest player in the 60-year history of Dodger Stadium to receive Homer and at least two extra shots at base in three games in a row.
“I think we did a great job coming here, getting up early with the guys and fighting with every opportunity, and jumping on things if we could,” said Harper, who has an 8 on 12 with three home runs and eight RBIs in the series. .
Jean Segura, Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins also beat home runs from Dodgers starter Julio Urias (2-3). Philadelphia, which has won four in a row and five of its last six victories, awaits Sunday’s first four games at Chavez Raven since 1985.
One of the few saving graces for the Dodgers is that they won’t see Harper in the series finale. Harper is scheduled to receive an injection of platelet-rich plasma to help with a partial rupture of a ligament in his right elbow.
Harper will remain a designated striker, as he will not throw for a month.
“It was nice to get clarity. For me, it was huge. I know where it stands now, and obviously go with it, ”Harper said.
Harper struck three times in the right field from Urias to increase Philis ’lead to 6-1 in the third inning. This is the eighth time in Harper’s career that he has hosted at least three games in a row and the first since August 2019.
Ranger Suarez (4-1) has made seven innings and won for the third time in the last four starts.
Flourie Bates made a solo hit in Los Angeles, which was released four times in a row for the first time since last June.
“We haven’t played the last four games as well as we can,” said manager Dave Roberts. “If you take a team in which those guys are waving bats and you don’t make good innings, they’ll make you pay.”
Segura extended his streak to 11 games in the first inning when Homer from three rounds barely made it through the short fence in the left corner of the field. The Dodgers had a chance to get out of the half, but third baseman Justin Turner made a mistake in the throw when hitting Nick Castellanos, who brought Segura out.
Schwarber and Hoskins added solo hits in the fourth to increase the lead to 8-1.
The Dodgers responded at the bottom of the fourth on two double runs down Cody Bellinger’s right field line with loaded bases.
Suarez threw 102 innings, the second game in a row he spent more than a century. The left-hander – who has left the last 11 strikers he has faced – has allowed three runs on five shots and struck out six.
Urias has given up four home runs that have reached the highest level in his career, surpassing the three he allowed early in his inaugural season in 2016. Five of the eight left-handed runs allowed were earned in eight strokes with three strikeouts in six innings.
Homeran Bates became 31st in his career, including 11th with the Dodgers.
Phyllis: Girardi said SS / 2B Bryson Stott was not in the lineup because this season the left-backs were fighting against Urias.
Dodgers: RHP Blake Trainen (inflammation of right shoulder) said he still feels uncomfortable and has no schedule when he will be able to pick up a baseball to resume throwing.
THE EVENT IS OVER
Phyllis announced before the game that former pitcher David West, who was part of their 1993 World Series team, had died of brain cancer. He was 57 years old.
West has had a 10-year career in majors with the New York Mets, Minnesota Twins, Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox. He played for Phyllis from 1993-96.
Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (1-4, 3.83 ERA) has not won since his first start of the season. RHP Michael Grove makes his big league debut for the Dodgers.
