In Los Angeles Wednesday, Matt Kemp hit a walk off home run in the 12th off Jake Diekman to give the Dodgers a 5-3 win in the finale of their series with the Phillies. After using 4 pitchers to keep the game tied at 1-1 in the 9th, Jonathan Papaelbon blew a 2-run 10th inning lead before Kemp won it. The blast ended the Phillies modest 4-game winning streak, leaving them at 41-52, and 14 games behind first place Washington. Carlos Ruiz (.350) had 2 hits and a walk, and drove in a run, and Ryan Howard had a pinch hit single in his only at bat.
In New York, Anthony Gose made his first start for the Blue Jays, and was 0 for 3 in the Yankees rain-shortened 6-0 win over Toronto.
