Freddie Freeman had three hits and two RBIs, Julio Urias tossed five scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the host Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Friday.

Trea Turner and Will Smith each added one hit and two walks apiece for the Dodgers, who won their sixth in a row. Justin Turner also walked twice.

Urias (3-3), who threw 80 pitches, gave up only two hits, struck out five and walked none. Craig Kimbrel allowed an infield single to Johan Camargo but recorded the final out in the ninth to earn his eighth save in eight opportunities.

The Phillies managed seven hits and avoided being shut out on consecutive nights when J.T. Realmuto hit an RBI double in the ninth. Odubel Herrera struck out to end the game with runners on first and third.

Kyle Schwarber produced a pair of doubles and Camargo added two hits.

Bryce Harper missed his fifth consecutive game after receiving a PRP injection in his right elbow last Sunday in Los Angeles.

Phillies starter Ranger Suarez (4-2) lasted only three innings and allowed five hits and three runs to go along with five strikeouts and two walks.

The Dodgers went ahead 1-0 in the first inning when Justin Turner hit a soft RBI groundout to first base. Suarez escaped further trouble when he struck out Chris Taylor on his 34th pitch with runners on second and third.

Freeman laced a two-run single to center in the second for a 3-0 advantage.

Roman Quinn singled to right with two outs in the third for the Phillies’ first hit.

Trea Turner doubled with one out in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to 12 in a row. Smith and Justin Turner each walked to load the bases. Taylor popped out to second and Cody Bellinger flied out to center to end the threat.

With the Phillies’ offense struggling, Camargo bunted for a single to begin the eighth. Herrera and Quinn each struck out and Rhys Hoskins walked. Alec Bohm then lined out to right.

Trea Turner added a sacrifice fly in the ninth for a 4-0 lead.
