LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rampaging rookie Yasiel Puig singled home the tying and go-ahead runs in the seventh inning, Andre Ethier had a two-run double, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 on Thursday night.

Greinke (4-3) struck out five over seven innings and allowed four runs on 12 hits, including solo homers by Domonic Brown and Chase Utley. Kenley Jansen got the last three outs for his seventh save in nine chances as Los Angeles won its sixth straight.

Puig was shaken up crashing into the right field auxiliary scoreboard while trying to track Utley's ninth homer in the top of the seventh that gave the Phillies a 4-3 lead.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the bottom half against rookie reliever Justin De Fratus (2-2) without the benefit of a hit, and Puig slapped a two-out, 0-2 pitch to left field to put the Dodgersahead 5-4.
