Philadelphia Phillies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Kershaw uncharacteristically walked a pair of Phillies hitters around a single by Freddy Galvis and was just one pitch away from getting out of the inning unscathed. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Altherr's home run broke Kershaw's 32-inning scoreless streak against Philadelphia - his longest versus any team in his career. The Phillies are now the only team against which Kershaw is two games under.500 in his career. That grand slam home run was Altherr's 17th for the season and put the Philadelphia Phillies up 4-2. He gave up the four runs on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts. I just wanted to make sure I got the head out. Taylor added to his career high with home run No. 20 on the year.

The hearty crowd of 16,690 exploded as Kershaw's 94th pitch of the night was turned into a souvenir. After running the count even at 1-1, Altherr blasted a grand slam into the second deck at Citizens Bank Park for the first grand slam ever hit off of Kershaw.

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

Altherr was all over a 1-and-1 slider from Kershaw, driving it into the seats for the grand slam. And he's at four, so I definitely know he's trending in the right way.

The Dodgers all came on home runs as well - an inside-the-park home run by Chris Taylor to start the game, a solo shot by Justin Turner three pitches later then nothing more until Curtis Granderson went deep with one out in the ninth.
