The Phillies beat the Dodgers, 10 - 9, after trailing 9 - 2 entering the bottom of the 8th. They score 4 runs that inning, and 4 more in the 9th off All-Star closer Jonathan Broxton to complete the dramatic comeback. Broxton starts the bottom of the 9th by hitting Placido Polanco with a pitch, then walks Mike Sweeney and Jayson Werth to load the bases with none out. Ben Francisco hits an apparent double play grounder, but it scoots through 3B Casey Blake's legs and two runs score. Carlos Ruiz follows with a game-ending 2-run double to left-center.
