Dodgers beat Phillies for 10th straight win

PHILADELPHIA - Dodgers manager Don Mattingly summed it up nicely after Clayton Kershaw became the latest Los Angeles starter to shut down the sinking Phillies.

“Kershaw’s pretty good,” Mattingly said.

The young ace pitched eight dominant innings and the seemingly unstoppable Dodgers won their 10th straight Saturday night, beating Philadelphia 5-0 to keep the Phillies scoreless in two games under new manager Ryne Sandberg.

Juan Uribe hit a three-run homer, Kershaw had an RBI double and the NL West leaders improved to 25-3 after the All-Star break. They have won 19 of their last 20 road games and are 42-8 overall since June 22, the best 50-game stretch in the majors since the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals had the same record.

The previous team to win 19 of 20 road games was the 1916 New York Giants, according to STATS.

The 10-game winning streak is the longest for Los Angeles since an 11-game run in 2006.

Meanwhile, the slumping Phillies have yet to cross home plate since manager Charlie Manuel was fired Friday.
