Friday the 13th was not a good day for the Dodgers.

The misfortune began with the team placing Clayton Kershaw on the 15-day injured list in the morning and ended nearing midnight with a 12-10, 10-inning loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium for their third straight defeat.

Justin Turner blasted a game-tying two-run home run with one out in the ninth inning, but the Phillies scored three runs off Brusdar Graterol and escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the 10th to begin the four-game series with two high-scoring wins.

Walker Buehler, whose start was moved up from Saturday to replace Kershaw on four days’ rest, recorded his worst performance of the season before the bullpen bungled a one-run lead.

Buehler gave up a season-high five runs on nine hits with just three strikeouts over five innings. He surrendered a two-run home run to Kyle Schwarber and two run-scoring hits to Bryson Stott, the Phillies’ No. 9 hitter who entered the night with a .111 batting average.

Phillies hold on to defeat Dodgers 12-10 in the 10th inning

Nick Castellanos hit a two-run double and then scored on an Austin Barnes throwing error to spearhead the Phillies’ 10th inning surge in a 12-10 win over the Dodgers.

With Roman Quinn starting on second, Dodgers reliever Brusdar Graterol got Alec Bohm to ground out before the Dodgers elected to walk Bryce Harper. Castellanos then drove a hit down the left-field line to score Quinn and Harper.

On the next at-bat, Barnes tried to pick off Castellanos as he tried to steal third. The throw as too far ahead of third baseman Max Muncy, who was playing well off the bag to catch the throw. With the ball going into left field, Castellanos scored easily. Barnes was charged with an error.

In the bottom of the 10th, Mookie Betts drove in Chris Taylor when he grounded into a bases-loaded double play against Phillies reliever Francisco Morales. The game ended when Trea Turner hit a liner up the middle that led to Freddie Freeman being forced out at second base.

FINAL SCORE: Phillies 12, Dodgers 10

Ninth inning: Justin Turner hit a no-doubt, two-run home run off Phillies reliever Jeurys Familia to tie the game 9-9. It was Turner’s second homer of the season and his seventh career home run against Philadelphia. The game went into extra innings after Chris Taylor flied out to the warning track in left field for the final out.


Inning recap: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts elected to use closer Craig Kimbrel, seemingly unconcerned about Phillies hitters facing him again this weekend. Kimbrel struck out Rhys Hoskins and Odubel Herrera before allowing a single to Johan Camargo.

Bryson Stott then reached base in somewhat usual circumstances when his scorcher up the middle went through the legs of Kimbrel and Max Muncy, who was charged with an error. Kyle Schwarber grounded out to the mound for the third out.

Facing Jeurys Familia, Trea Turner rolled a leadoff single into left-center field. Max Muncy then hit a grounder to first, with Rhys Hoskins throwing to second to force out Turner. Justin Turner then blasted a Familia pitch deep into the left-field pavilion, driving in Muncy to tie the game. Cody Bellinger struck out after Turner’s homer. Chris Taylor flied out to the warning track in left field to send the game into extra innings.

End of the ninth: Phillies 9, Dodgers 9

Eighth inning: Philadelphia’s Bryce Harper hit a solo home run to right field off Dodgers reliever Phil Bickford — his third extra-base hit of the night — to extend the Phillies’ lead to 9-7. It was Harper’s eighth home run of the season.

At the plate, the Dodgers could muster anything against Phillies reliever Nick Nelson. Austin Barnes spun out to second, Mookie Betts struck out and Freddie Freeman grounded out.

End of the eighth: Phillies 9, Dodgers 7


Dodgers trail Phillies 8-7 heading into the eighth inning

Seventh inning recap: Dodgers reliever Tommy Kahnle walked Odubel Herrera to lead off the inning, struck out Johan Camargo, then walked Bryson Stott. Kyle Schwarber then lined into a double play, with Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux making the catch before quickly throwing to Trea Turner to get Herrera out at second.

The bottom of the inning started with Justin Turner grounding out and Cody Bellinger walking, leading to Nick Nelson replacing Brad Hand on the mound for Philadelphia. Nelson struck out Chris Taylor and got Gavin Lux to ground out to the mound.

End of the seventh: Phillies 8, Dodgers 7

Sixth inning: Philadelphia’s Alex Bohm, Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos each drove in runs to give the Phillies a two-run lead. In the bottom of the inning, the Dodgers cut into that lead when Trea Turner was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. The Phillies lead 8-7 heading into the seventh.


Inning recap: Dodgers reliever Alex Vesia gave up a single to Johan Camargo before walking Bryson Stott and Kyle Schwarber to load the bases.

Evan Phillips then took over for Vesia, and gave up the Alex Bohm sac fly. Bryce Harper followed with his 13th double of the season to plate Stott and give Philadelphia the lead for the second time tonight.

Nick Castellanos then singled to right, scoring Schwarber. Harper also tried to score, but Chris Taylor’s throw to home was on-spot, and catcher Austin Barnes tagged him as he tried to hop past. Phillips then struck out Rhys Hoskins to end the ugly inning. Can the Dodgers bounce back after Vesia’s struggles?

In the bottom portion of the inning, Austin Barnes and Mookie Betts each singled off Phillies reliever Andrew Bellatti, ending his brief stint on the mound.

Freddie Freeman drew a walk from Phillies reliever Brad Hand to load the bases with two outs. Hand then hit Trea Turner with a pick to score Barnes and make it a one-run game. Max Muncy then struck out swinging with the bases loaded to end the inning.

End of the sixth: Phillies 8, Dodgers 7


No scoring in the fifth inning

Fifth inning recap: Walker Buehler retired the Phillies in order, and Phillies reliever James Norwood retired Max Muncy, Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger in order.

Alex Vesia will relieve Buehler in the sixth. Buehler allowed nine hits, five runs, struck out three and walked one over five innings and 82 pitches.

End of the fifth: Dodgers 6, Phillies 5


Dodgers re-take lead on Austin Barnes’ run-scoring single

Fourth inning: Austin Barnes drove in Chris Taylor on a run-scoring single off Phillies pitcher Kyle Gibson to give the Dodgers a 6-5 lead. The Dodgers managed to re-take the lead after a two-run home run by Philadelphia’s Kyle Schwarber and a RBI single by Bryson Stott in the top of the inning temporarily tied the game.


Recap: After Rhys Hoskins flied out, Odubel Herrera doubled on a rolling laser into right-center field and scored on Bryson Stott’s single to center field. Kyle Schwarber followed with his eighth home run of the season — a no-doubter into the visiting bullpen at Dodger Stadium. With the game tied 5-5, a clearly frustrated Walker Buehler allowed a single to Alec Bohm before walking Bryce Harper.

The Harper walk prompted a mound visit from pitching coach Mark Prior. After the visit, Nick Castellanos popped out to Cody Bellinger to cap the top of the inning.

Buehler allowed five runs — his season high — in a game he originally wasn’t supposed to start. He was scheduled to pitch Saturday before the Dodgers placed Clayton Kershaw on the injured list Friday morning.

Philadelphia starter Kyle Gibson remained in the game after rough third inning, and he promptly gave up a leadoff single to Chris Taylor. After Taylor advanced to second on a Gavin Lux groundout, Barnes drove him in on a single to center. Two batters later, Freddie Freeman singled on a liner to left, moving Barnes to third and ending Gibson’s night. Gibson allowed six earned runs, eight hits, struck out one and walked one over 3 2/3 innings.

James Norwood took over in relief and struck out Trea Turner to end the threat of further Dodger runs.

End of the fourth: Dodgers 6, Phillies 5

Third inning: Chris Taylor hit a leadoff home run, Justin Turner hit a two-run double and Mookie Betts and Max Muncy each drove in runs to give the Dodgers a 5-2 lead.


Third inning recap: Philadelphia’s Alec Bohm grounded out before Bryce Harper sent a scorcher down the left-field line for a standup double. Walker Buehler then struck out Nick Castellanos. J.T. Realmuto hit a soft dribbler that allowed catcher Austin Barnes to throw him out at first for the third out.

In the bottom half of the frame, Chris Taylor hit a first-pitch home run off Phillies starter Kyle Gibson into the left-field pavilion. Gavin Lux grounded out in the next at-bat. Austin Barnes then got underneath a Gibson curveball to launch a double into the left-center field gap. Mookie Betts drove in Barnes on a double to left field.

Gibson walked Freddie Freeman before getting Trea Turner to pop out to center for the second out. Max Muncy broke out of his funk with an RBI single to right before Justin Turner hit a two-run double to center field to plate Freeman and Muncy. Cody Bellinger’s popout ended the inning.

After retiring the Dodgers in order in the first two innings, Gibson allowed four extra-base hits and likely will not be back on the mound in the fourth.

End of the third: Dodgers 5, Phillies 2

Second inning: Philadelphia’s Bryson Stott hit a two-run single off Dodgers starter Walker Buehler to give the Phillies a 2-0 lead.


How the inning unfolded: Rhys Hoskins singled on a comebacker just to the left off Walker Buehler, who tried to get his glove on it but missed. Odubel Herrera then chipped a cutter into shallow left to put two Phillies on base with one out.

Freddie Freeman then made a diving “Superman” catch toward the first-base line to stop what likely would have been a run-scoring drive for Johan Camargo. On the next at-bat, Bryson Stott singled to left, driving in Hoskins and Herrera. Cody Bellinger then made a running catch on a ball hit by Kyle Schwarber for the third out.

Max Muncy’s struggles continued, with the third baseman popping out in his first at-bat. Justin Turner grounded out to third and Cody Bellinger flied out to center field. Phillies starter Kyle Gibson hasn’t allowed a hit on 27 pitches.

End of the second: Phillies 2, Dodgers 0

At the plate, the Dodgers couldn’t muster much. Phillies starting pitcher Kyle Gibson struck out Mookie Betts and got Freddie Freeman and Trea Turner to ground out.

End of the first: Phillies 0, Dodgers 0


Starting lineups for Dodgers vs. Phillies

Here are the starting lineups for tonight’s game between the Dodgers and Phillies at Dodger Stadium.


Trevor Bauer’s two-year suspension appeal reportedly set for later this month

NEW YORK — Trevor Bauer’s arbitration appeal of his unprecedented two-year suspension under Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy has been scheduled to start May 23, a person familiar with the hearing told the Associated Press.

The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the date was not announced.

The appeal will be heard by a three-person panel chaired by independent arbitrator Martin Scheinman. It will include one representative each from MLB and the players’ association.

Bauer was suspended by Commissioner Rob Manfred on April 29, a penalty that, if unchanged, will cost the Dodgers pitcher just over $60 million of his $102 million, three-year contract. Bauer immediately said he would challenge it.

Dodgers place Clayton Kershaw on injured list; team hopeful he will be back soon

On the day he was supposed to make his sixth start of the season, Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was instead placed on the injured list with right sacroiliac joint inflammation, the team announced.

Kershaw began feeling the pain following the team’s flight home Wednesday night from Pittsburgh. He had an epidural injection on Thursday.

An MRI of Kershaw’s back showed no structural damage, the pitcher said. Both he and the team are hopeful he can return to action following, or soon after, his 15-day IL stint is up.

“I don’t feel great right now,” Kershaw said. “It’s a little sore right now. But I’m confident that by the time my [injured list] stint is over, I should be close to ready to go — if not ready to go.”

ICYMI: Dodgers stage stunning rally but fall to Phillies as Max Muncy’s struggles continue

Hey, Max Muncy, what have you done lately?

Dodgers fans know full well the answer is the same as when somebody asks, “What’s up?”

Standard reply: “Not much.”

That doesn’t mean Muncy isn’t appreciated. He was honored before Thursday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, with bobbleheads handed out to fans entering Dodger Stadium. His wife, Kellie, threw the ceremonial first pitch and Muncy held their 9-month-old daughter, Sophie Kate, until nearly game time.

Mired in a debilitating, season-long slump, Muncy was hopeful fans would fondly remember the 36 home runs he hit last season, the 35 he hit in 2019, the 35 he hit in 2018.

“We have the best fans in the world and I don’t think they’ve forgotten what I’ve done the last couple of years,” he said. “At the same time, they expect me to be better and I expect myself to be better.”
