PHOENIX AZ- AUGUST 31 Los Angeles Dodgers Outfield Chris Taylor bats during the MLB baseball game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks

Three pitches later, the Phillies two-run deficit was turned into a two-run lead with one Aaron Altherr swing, a swing that sent the ball 418-feet away and into the second tier of left field seats at Citizens Bank Park for the first grand slam ever hit of the great Clayton Kershaw.

It was the first grand slam allowed in Kershaw's career, and the one mistake was all it took for Kershaw (17-4) to get the loss, allowing all four runs to come on one pitch, scattering four hits with two walks (both in the 6 inning) with six strikeouts in six innings.

Los Angeles Dodgers' Chris Taylor, left, rounds the bases after hitting an inside the park home run off Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Nick Pivetta during the first inning of a baseball game, Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, in Philadelphia. 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.

Altherr's homer also gave the Phillies a 4-2 lead on the Dodgers heading into the seventh inning. I was just looking in a certain zone.

It was Taylor's 20th home run, giving the Dodgers five players with 20-plus homers, along with Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Corey Seager and Turner, who hit his 21st.

What's more, five players in the Phillies' lineup had never faced Kershaw, and usually the advantage goes to the pitcher in those situations. Yeah, he had two walks in the sixth and gave up the grand slam, first in his career.

Iran, Turkey and the United States also object to the vote, fearing further instability. It is claimed by both the Kurds and the central government in Baghad.

Rhys Hoskins went 1-2 with a single and a walk.

"The thing I like about him is he really thinks he's good, he really believes in himself", Mackanin said of Pivetta. I blew it and we lost.

The loss kept the Dodgers from cutting any further into their magic number to clinch the NL West (four).

Monday was Kershaw's fourth start since returning from a lower back strain and Roberts said he is "right where you would expect" given the five-week layoff. And he's at four, so I definitely know he's trending in the right way. "You can see him feeling for things".

Hector Neris recorded his 22nd save for the Phillies despite allowing a solo homer to Curtis Granderson in the ninth. Freddy Galvis entered this series with 145 hits, 64 runs, 12 homers and 61 RBI while Odubel Herrera had 62 runs, 13 homers, 50 RBI and 138 hits.
