PHILADELPHIA (AP) — With one of the club’s icons taking perhaps his final bow in Philadelphia, it was easy to recall the Phillies’ recent glory years. A new era of celebration may be near.
Scott Kingery homered and Carlos Santana hit a three-run triple in Philadelphia’s five-run fifth inning, leading the Phillies to a 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday.
Rhys Hoskins also went deep for the Phillies, who increased their lead in the NL East to 1½ games over the idle Atlanta Braves by taking two of three in the series.
“That was really huge for us,” right-hander Jake Arrieta said.
Fans cheered Chase Utley for the final time here before each at-bat, unless the Dodgers face the Phillies in the postseason.
