And Kershaw, known universally as the best pitcher on the planet, held the Phils to a pair of singles in the game's first five innings. Phillies rookie sensation Rhys Hoskins had a rough series against the Athletics, going 0-for-11 with six strikeouts after a three-game performance versus Miami in which he went 5-for-10 with five walks, four home runs and seven RBIs.

Chris Taylor hit an inside-the-park home run to start the game, but Clayton Kershaw surrendered a grand slam late, as the Philadelphia Phillies upset the Los Angeles Dodgers, 4-3, on Monday night at Citizens Bank Park. It was the longest scoreless streak by any pitcher against the Phillies since the Mets' Tom Seaver blanked them for 38 consecutive innings from 1969-70. In the sixth, though, he walked pinch-hitter Ty Kelly to start the inning. Philadelphia fell to 4-2 on its 10-game homestand after dropping a 6-3 decision to Oakland on Sunday.
"Just a bad slider", Kershaw offered.
The creative home run was also Taylor's 20 of the season, making him the fifth Dodger with 20 or more home runs this season.
