Clayton Kershaw gave up his first ever grand slam against the Phillies

Clayton Kershaw Allows First Ever Grand Slam as Phillies Rally Past Dodgers 4-3

Unfortunately, Kershaw gave up his first ever grand slam in the 6th and that would be all the Phillies needed to win the game.

Taylor broke out of his most recent 0-for-15 slump with a little bit of luck from the outfielder guard rail as he hammered the second pitch of the game off the rail in left-center and the ball ricocheted into left field and away from two Phillies outfielders allowing CT3 to easily run around the bases for a leadoff, stand-up, inside-the-park home run. It was the longest scoreless streak by any pitcher against the Phillies since the Mets' Tom Seaver blanked them for 38 consecutive innings from 1969-70.

The Dodgers (96-54) took a 2-0 lead with back-to-back home runs to open the first inning, and they still held that edge entering the sixth inning against the seemingly lifeless Phillies (59-91).

Despite allowing two home runs to the first two batters of the game, Pivetta (6-10), got the win, beating Kershaw by allowing just two runs on four hits with two walks and eight strikeouts in six innings. I was just looking in a certain zone.

Even with a five-week stay on the DL, Kershaw has given up 21 home runs this season, a career-high by five. Yeah, he had two walks in the sixth and gave up the grand slam, first in his career.

"Obviously we were being careful with Hoskins", said catcher Austin Barnes of the walk to Rhys Hoskins that loaded the bases.




"I thought he pitched really well tonight", continued Roberts.

Galvis popped one of the Phillies' three jacks in a seven-run second inning.

While the Phillies did win the game 4-3, Kershaw's Dodgers remain in ideal position to win their division. The lefty surrendered four runs on four hits while striking out six and walking two.

In other news, The Diamondbacks lost to the Padres on Monday, cutting the Dodgers' magic number down to just three! "He didn't quit and he keeps battling, that's the thing I like about him the most, along with his stuff". He's at four. I definitely know he's trending in the right direction.

The bullpen made the lead stand up, though Hector Neris allowed a solo homer to Curtis Granderson in the ninth to make it a one-run game.

The Dodgers had three home runs themselves but it wasn't enough to counteract Altherr's one sweet shot.
