Betts homer in front of 52,078 leads Dodgers over Phillies

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mookie Betts hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 at Dodger Stadium before the largest crowd to attend a baseball game in the United States since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The game was played before a sellout throng of 52,078 after California lifted many COVID-19 safety measures overnight, including allowing stadiums to go to full capacity. Phillies slugger Bryce Harper exited with lower back stiffness after he took an awkward swing in the fourth.
