Bullpen sinks Phils
Photos
Dodgers 4, Phillies 3
After ripping his 30th homer in the first, Chase Utley is greeted by Jimmy Rollins. (Getty Images)
Cole Hamels did his part, tossing seven impressive innings of two-run ball, but the relief corps could not preserve his first victory since July 3, giving up single runs in the eighth and ninth. With the loss, the Phils' NL East lead is down to one game.
