Dodgers Vs. Phillies Final Score: Elian Herrera, Chad Billingsley Lead 2-1 Win Over Cliff Lee

For the second consecutive night, Elian Herrera was the hero for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who came from behind to beat Cliff Lee and the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 on Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Lee was dominant through seven scoreless innings, but the Dodgers got to him for four hits in the eighth, punctuated by Herrera's two-run double.

Herrera's double turned a 1-0 deficit into a one-run lead and made a winner out of Chad Billingsley (3-4), who won for the first time since April 11. Billingsley allowed just one run on six hits and struck out three.

Lee struck out 12 on the night and despite his 2.92 ERA and 6-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio this year he is winless in nine starts (0-3). The two runs Tuesday were one more than the Dodgers had scored in their previous four games against Lee.

Kenley Jansen allowed a hit, but also struck out two in his scoreless ninth inning to pick up his eighth save of the year. With the win, the Dodgers have won back-to-back games for the first time in nine days.

Javy Guerra, who was placed on the disabled list on Monday, had surgery on his right knee Tuesday and is expected to miss the next four to six weeks.
