Delmon Young had a career-high six RBI, helping John Lannan breeze to his first victory with Philadelphia, and the Phillies got homers from Michael Young and John Mayberry in a 16-1 rout of the Dodgers on Friday night, snapping Los Angeles' season-best, six-game winning streak.
Phillies All-Star first baseman Ryan Howard, batting .268 overall and .173 against left-handers, was given the day off by manager Charlie Manuel with lefty Chris Capuano starting for the Dodgers. And with lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu scheduled to pitch for the Dodgers on Saturday, Manuel said he would give the 2006 NL MVP another day off before putting him back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale.
Despite Howard's absence from the lineup, the Phillies ended up with a season-high 21 hits, including four by Michael Young.
Delmon Young had an RBI single in the first inning, a two-run double in the second, a run-scoring fielder's choice grounder in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh.
The Phillies, who hadn't had more than nine runs and 16 hits in a game all season, also got a pair of run-scoring singles from Jimmy Rollins -- matching his RBI total for his previous 10 games combined.
Michael Young's leadoff homer in the fourth gave Philadelphia a 7-0 lead. Lannan made it 8-0 with his RBI single in the fifth, and the Phillies extended the margin to 12-0 with a four-run sixth highlighted by Mayberry's two-run homer off Peter Moylan. They added three more in the seventh.
The 15-run losing margin was the largest for the Dodgers since they moved to Los Angeles after the 1957 season.
Things got so ugly for the Dodgers, utilityman Skip Schumaker was summoned by manager Don Mattingly to pitch the ninth inning. He struck out pinch-hitter Humberto Quintero with the bases loaded on his 24th pitch after retiring his first two batters. Schumaker also threw a scoreless inning of relief on April 29 against Colorado in the Dodgers' 12-2 loss at Chavez Ravine.
Lannan (1-2) gave up five hits over seven innings in his sixth start with the Phillies and third since coming off the disabled list. The left-hander, who spent his six previous big league seasons with Washington, has won his last five decisions against the Dodgers.
Lannen also was 3 for 4 at the plate. Two seasons ago, he hit his first major league home run at Dodger Stadium in a 7-2 win for the Nationals.
The Dodgers' run came on a sixth-inning double by pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke, who was reinstated from the disabled list after missing 15 games because of bursitis in his left shoulder.
Capuano (2-5) surrendered seven runs and 10 hits over 3 2-3 innings in his third start off the DL, after throwing a combined 11 scoreless innings against the Yankees and Padres during the last road trip. He has a 9.00 ERA in five starts at Dodger Stadium this season, compared to a 1.35 figure on the road.
Two of the runs off Capuano were unearned, the result of a fielding error by three-time Gold Glove first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on a two-out grounder by Domonic Brown in the second.
NOTES: Howard, in the second season of a five-year, $125 million contract, is batting .268 overall with 10 homers and 41 RBIs -- including a current 0 for 16 drought that includes eight strikeouts. In Thursday night's series-opening 6-4 loss, he grounded into an inning-ending double play on a 3-0 pitch. ''Right now he's uncomfortable and he's not seeing (lefties) good,'' said Manuel, who met privately with Howard and hitting coaches Wally Joyner and Steve Henderson. ''It's just a matter of him getting his swing back and getting in a good groove. So we're going to do some drills with him, do some work with his hitting and also give him some time -- let him sit down and kind of clear his head and we'll where he goes. And he's fine with it.'' ... Delmon Young had as many as five RBIs in a game on two previous occasions, most recently on Oct. 2, 2009, against Kansas City while playing for Minnesota. ... The Phillies optioned INF Freddy Galvis to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to clear a roster spot for INF John McDonald, who was acquired in a trade with Cleveland on Thursday. ... INF Luis Cruz, who is out of minor league options, was designated for assignment.

The Red Sox could eventually kick the tires on Michael Young. They just haven’t done so yet.
The New York Post reported that the Red Sox would be interested in trading for Young if the Phillies made him available, adding that a source reportedly said, “They want him badly.” But according to WEEI.com, the Red Sox have not engaged in “a single conversation” with the Phillies...
In lockstep with Tim Brown’s piece at Yahoo! that states the Phillies will enter a “partial rebuild”, word from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo came out today that the Kansas City Royals have begun internally discussing acquiring Chase Utley. On Thursday, we looked at prospective matches for a hypothetical Utley trade, citing the Yankees, Orioles, and Blue Jays as teams that...
Is Young Headed To The Hub?Not that we like to gloat, but FenwayNation did advocate for a Michael Young—not Jonathan Papelbon—deal with the Phillies in an article back on June 24th. Gee, maybe BenCher and the Baseball Ops boys actually read us. Nah. Anyway, according to George A. King III of the New York Post, the Red Sox "badly" want Young to solidify third base for...

Whew. That was fun. The Phillies put up three runs in each of the first two innings , and kept piling it on en route to a 16-1 thrashing of the Dodgers Friday night. The offensive explosion is the first time this season that the Phillies put up double digit runs in a game. Each Phillie in the starting lineup had a hit, including six with multiple...

John Lannan had a rough outing last time out. He gets a shot at redemption vs. a hot Dodgers line up which is being fueled by extremely hot rookie, Yusiel Puig. Not since the days of Vladimir Guerrero have a seen a hitter who seemed like he could hit just...
The Phillies rebounded from a tough loss yesterday by absolutely demolishing Los Angeles' pitching staff in support of John Lannan Friday, managing 21 hits in a 16-1 win. Chris Capuano, who had pitched 11 scoreless innings stretching back to his last two starts, didn't look sharp at all out of...

Chalk this move up as strange: the Phillies acquired 38-year old infielder John McDonald from Cleveland for a player to be named later or cash. It doesn’t take advanced statistics to show that McDonald has been ineffective this season. McDonald has hit just .053/.163/.079 in 43 PA and will join his third team this season. In case you are wondering, that triple slash line is worth...
