MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 8, Philadelphia 3

June 7, 2012 at 4:43 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, June 7 (UPI) -- Aaron Harang survived a rough start and the Los Angeles Dodgers came from behind Thursday for the fourth consecutive game in a 8-3 win over Philadelphia.

Harang (5-3) was touched for three runs in the third inning but the Los Angeles offense had two big innings that allowed the Dodgers to sweep a four-game series in Philadelphia for the first time.

Phillies starter Cole Hamels (8-3) saw a string of eight consecutive winning decisions snapped after he gave up six hits and four runs (three earned) in six innings.

Philadelphia staked Hamels to a 3-0 lead off Harang in the third. Hamels started the rally with a single while Mike Fontenot capped it with an RBI single.

The Dodgers got a sacrifice fly from Jerry Hairston in the fourth and took the lead in the sixth when James Loney, Tony Gwynn and Matt Treanor all drove in runs.

Los Angeles clinched the sweep with a four-run ninth that featured a two-run double by Andre Ethier.
