Kyle Schwarber hit a game-ending home run with two outs in the ninth inning as the Philadelphia Phillies extended their winning streak to a season-best six games Friday with a 5-4 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers
Schwarber reached base four times on a pair of hits while also walking twice, and finished off the victory with his 17th home run of the season by going deep against Dodgers left-hander Caleb Ferguson
Trea Turner had a pair of hits with an RBI against his former team as Philadelphia followed a walk-off win Thursday against Detroit with another in the series opener against Los Angeles.
Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman hit back-to-back home runs for the Dodgers and Jonny DeLuca recorded his first major league hit, while Los Angeles lost for the fifth time in its last six games -- three by walk-off hit
Ferguson (3-2) came on in the ninth inning for the Dodgers and got two quick outs before giving up Schwarber's blast to right field
The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Freeman doubled and J.D. Martinez had an RBI double to left field
The Phillies got even in the third inning on a Schwarber leadoff triple and a one-out RBI single from Bryce Harper
Philadelphia jumped in front in the fifth inning when Nick Castellanos had an RBI double, Schwarber scored on a wild pitch by Michael Grove and Turner had an RBI single for a 4-1 advantage.
The Dodgers roared back in a hurry in the seventh inning. Betts hit a two-out, two-run home run, his 17th, and Freeman followed with a blast to center field, his 12th. Both home runs came against Phillies left-hander Matt Strahm
The Dodgers nearly took the lead in the eighth inning, but Martinez's drive to left field just fell short of being a home run and went for a leadoff double. Max Muncy followed with a line drive toward right field but second baseman Bryson Stott made a diving catch
Phillies starter Ranger Suarez gave up one run on four hits over six innings, striking out eight with two walks. Left-hander Gregory Soto (2-4) pitched a scoreless ninth inning
