LOS ANGELES (AP) — Domonic Brown doubled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning after a costly error by left fielder Carl Crawford, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Carlos Ruiz reached second base when his flyball to short left field glanced off Crawford’s glove as shortstop Hanley Ramirez nearly collided with the left fielder. Brown followed with a drive to the fence in left-center on a 1-1 pitch from J.P. Howell (1-2).
Antonio Bastardo (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory and Jonathan Papelbon got three outs for his sixth save, putting him within eight of 300.
One night after Philadelphia’s Cliff Lee held the defending NL West champions to four hits through eight scoreless innings, teammate A.J. Burnett took a four-hitter and a 2-1 lead into the seventh. But birthday boy Dee Gordon legged out a double to short right-center with one out, stole third and scored when pinch-hitter Justin Turner singled to left on Burnett’s 105th and final pitch.
The right-hander allowed six hits, struck out four of his first eight batters and finished with five Ks in 6 2-3 innings. He also had a career-high three hits in three at-bats, all singles against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Ryu allowed two runs and nine hits in six innings.
Burnett lined a single to right field leading off the third, and Yasiel Puig tried to throw the pitcher out without success. After Adrian Gonzalez took the throw, the 37-year-old pitcher stood on the bag and looked out at Puig with the palms of both hands facing downward as if to say: “Whoa, take it easy.”
Burnett didn’t take it easy on Ryu, hitting another leadoff single in the fifth. He scored the game’s first run on a double by Marlon Byrd, and Ryan Howard followed with a sacrifice fly that drove in Ben Revere. Burnett got his third single of the game with two out in the sixth.
The Dodgers got their first run in the fifth on Crawford’s sac fly.
Ruiz tripled off the top of the left field fence in the fourth and was thrown out by third baseman Juan Uribe on a grounder by Jayson Nix with runners at the corners.
Ramirez got some good news Tuesday, when Major League Baseball rescinded an error he was charged with April 13 on a grounder to shortstop by Arizona’s Chris Owings and credited Owings with a hit. But Ramirez gave it right back in the Phillies’ second inning when he misplayed Brown’s grounder after a single by Howard.
NOTES: Burnett’s multihit game was his fifth in the majors – all on the road. The other four came with the Marlins, most recently on Sept. 25, 2005, against Atlanta’s Jorge Sosa. … Revere tied a career high with four hits, three of them against Ryu. … Gonzalez was 0 for 3 with a walk, ending his 16-game hitting streak. … Burnett was 0-4 with a 4.87 ERA in his previous four starts at Dodger Stadium.
