Los Angeles, CA – Swagger is a heck of a thing.
The Phillies, while building baseball's best record, proved they have it in spades.
The Dodgers are still looking.
Trailing 6-0 after three innings, the Phillies scored nine times in the next three innings and held on for a 9-8 victory Wednesday to complete a three-game sweep of the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
Ryan Howard's two-run homer capped a four-run sixth inning that finally gave Philadelphia the lead after its standout young starter, Vance Worley, was knocked around in one of his worst outings of the season.
Hunter Pence also had a two-run homer for the red-hot Phillies, who wrapped up the best 10-game road trip in franchise history with a 9-1 record. It was their 12th victory in the last 13 games overall.
