The Phillies would not go away, as Maikel Franco went deep in the bottom half of the inning to pull back within one. That was one of his two solo shots for the Phillies, who rallied from an early 4-0 deficit. Rhys Hoskins hit a game-tying three-run blast in the fifth, before Odubel Herrera lined one out to right-center field to give his team the lead.
The Dodgers hit four home runs on the night, including back-to-back jacks in the first inning from Max Muncy and Yasmani Grandal. Chris Taylor and Joc Pederson also left the ballpark in the Dodgers' 56th win of the season. Muncy then added a clutch RBI with a sacrifice fly to score Manny Machado and tie the game in the seventh inning.
Machado, playing in his fourth game with the Dodgers, got his first start of the season at third base after Justin Turner was placed on the disabled list with a groin injury. The Baltimore Orioles had shifted Machado from third to shortstop this season, which the All-Star played in replacement of the injured Corey Seager when coming over to Los Angeles. Elsewhere in the Dodgers' infield, Chase Utley, a former World Series Champion with the Phillies, received multiple standing ovations from the crowd. The veteran recently announced that he is retiring at the end of this season.
The Phillies' loss drops them in to a first place tie in the NL East with the Atlanta Braves, who blew out the Marlins in Miami on Monday. The Dodgers hang on to their top spot in the NL West, as this series will continue with Game 2 on Tuesday night.
