Home plate collision rule causes confusion

Hanley Ramirez was thrown out at the plate on a play the Dodgers felt that Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz blocked home plate before he had the ball, but the out call was withheld after replay on Thursday night.

Wilson's struggles continue

Wilson has allowed runs in three of his six outings this season, and took the loss Thursday night at Dodger Stadium.

Ruiz stops Dodgers again

Carlos Ruiz reached base five times, scored twice, helped block a Dodgers run from scoring, and knocked in a pair of go-ahead runs in the ninth to help the Phillies to a win at Dodger Stadium.

Kemp odd man out in finale vs. Phillies

Matt Kemp is 6-for-15 (.400) against Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick in his career, but he sits out the finale on Thursday night, with the Dodgers outfield rotation settling on Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier and Yasiel Puig in the series finale.

Starters have been good, but in short stints

Dodgers starting pitchers rank near the top of MLB in several categories, but haven't been able to last deep into games. Dan Haren, who has averaged a team-best 6.25 innings per start, looks to remedy that on Thursday.
