Phillies Come From Behind Down 6 To Sweep Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ryan Howard and Hunter Pence homered as the Philadelphia Phillies overcame an early six-run deficit and beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-8 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

The Phillies won for the 12th time in 13 games and completed a 9-1 road trip. They improved baseball’s best record to 77-40 — Philadelphia is 37 games over .500 for the first time since 1977.

Down 6-0 after three innings, the Phillies rallied and eventually scored four times in the sixth for a 9-7 lead. Howard’s 25th homer was a tiebreaking, two-run shot with two outs.
