The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-5, at Citizens Bank Park. Shortstop Corey Seager had an outstanding performance, going 3-for-4 with a home run and a double. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2.

Los Angeles reliever Edubray Ramos picked up the win, upping his record to 1-1. Seranthony Dominguez absorbed the loss. Los Angeles leads the National League West Division by 4 games.

Seager had the key at-bat of the game with a runner on 2nd in the top of the eighth, when he hit a 2-run home run to put the Dodgers ahead for good.

Win or lose, we pick each other up in this clubhouse,” Seager told the Los Angeles Chronicle Times Daily News Register.

Figuratively, I hope.

Chris Taylor had the game-winning home run off Dominguez, who struggled mightily on the night. Joc Pederson and Gavin Lux each chipped in with two hits of their own in the game as well.

Julio Urias had a rough outing. He threw just 61 pitches, allowing four runs in four innings. He didn’t issue a walk and struck out five, but he got touched up a bit in the third and fourth innings. Ross Stripling, Ramos and Ferguson helped bridge the way to Kenley Jansen, who nailed down his 11th save of the season on just six pitches.

The Dodgers improve to 24-17 on the season. They go for the sweep on Wednesday. Clayton Kershaw opposes Reggie McClain.
