LA drops tough opener
Phillies 5, Dodgers 4
Russell Martin is greeted in the dugout following his 15th home run. (Jon SooHoo/Dodgers)

The visitors got off to a great start, scoring twice in the first inning on hits by Andre Ethier and Luis Gonzalez and once in the second on Russell Martin's home run, but starter Brett Tomko (four earned runs over four-plus innings) couldn't hold the lead in Philly.
