Dodgers 6, Phillies 5:
Dee Gordon smacked the go-ahead two-run single as visiting Los Angeles beat Philadelphia for the third straight night.

Tony Gwynn scored twice and Chris Capuano picked up his eighth victory to tie for the National League lead as the Dodgers handed the Phillies their season-high fifth straight defeat.

Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Ty Wigginton all homered for the Phillies. Wigginton added a run-scoring double in the ninth and Mike Fontenot walked with two outs before Kenley Jansen retired Brian Schneider on a pop-up for his ninth save in 12 opportunities.

The Dodgers loaded the bases against Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendrick (2-5) in the sixth. Pinch hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. walked to bring Los Angeles within 4-3 and Gordon greeted reliever Raul Valdes with a two-run hit to right to give the Dodgers the lead.

James Loney drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth for an insurance run.

Wigginton led off the Philadelphia fifth with a game-tying homer and two outs later, Rollins lofted a high-arching homer to left on a 2-2 pitch from Capuano to give the Phillies a 4-2 advantage.

Victorino hit a one-out homer in the second to give Philadelphia the early lead. Los Angeles tallied twice in the third with Gwynn tripling in the first run and scoring the second.

Capuano (8-2) allowed four runs and four hits in five innings.

Kendrick was charged with five runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked five.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Phillies activated Jim Thome (back) prior to Wednesday’s game and optioned infielder Pete Orr to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. … Loney had two of Los Angeles’ seven hits. … Philadelphia third baseman Placido Polanco (cut finger) was unavailable and second baseman Freddy Galvis left the contest with a 3-2 count in the fifth with a lower back injury. Mike Fontenot finished the at-bat by taking ball four from Capuano. … Dodgers infielder Juan Uribe (wrist) will start a rehab assignment Friday and is expected to return to the majors early next week.
