PHILADELPHIA >> The National League West standings show that the Dodgers have a fairly small margin for error. The way they’re playing is another matter.In beating the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Wednesday, and losing the day before, they’ve squandered more chances to score than their pitching staff has allowed.In case the pressure wasn’t evident, the San Francisco Giants had already beaten the Atlanta Braves by the time Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen took over in the ninth inning – a score that shone brightly into the visitors’ dugout from the right-field scoreboard. By winning, the Dodgers maintained their two-game lead in the NL West. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Maybe it was the sheer volume of mistakes against the team with the worst record in baseball — the Dodgers also committed two errors in the field – but Wednesday’s win didn’t feel much different from Tuesday’s loss.The Phillies got a big home run off a Dodgers reliever in both games. Maikel Franco’s grand slam off Joel Peralta made the difference Tuesday.On Wednesday, Jim Johnson served up a two-run shot to Francoeur in the eighth inning. The Dodgers survived because starter Brett Anderson had “a lot of life” on his fastball, according to catcher A.J. Ellis, and Jansen struck out the side in the ninth.Anderson (6-6) pitched six strong innings, allowing just four hits and one run, while walking one batter and striking out five. He touched 95 mph on the radar gun with his fastball, something he’s done in only four games this season.The Dodgers are 6-0 when Ellis catches Anderson, who hadn’t pitched since July 28.Ellis was seeing his first action since July 19. He injured his knee extending for a foul pop-up in that game and subsequently went on the disabled list.“We have pretty good chemistry,” Ellis said of he and Anderson. “We both have pretty similar idea of what he can do on the mound. He’s very realistic what kind of pitcher he is. I try to be honest and realistic when I give my assessment of how to approach the game.”Puig delivered the game’s decisive hit, a three-run home run off former Dodgers pitcher Aaron Harang (5-12) in the first inning. It was Puig’s eighth home run of the season, half of which have come in his last 13 games.The Dodgers got a necessary insurance run in the fifth inning. Jimmy Rollins walked, went to third base on a single by Howie Kendrick, and scored on a groundout by Adrian Gonzalez. Under the circumstances, it was more than a little frustrating to see the Dodgers leave 12 runners on base for the second straight day, going 2 for 8 with runners in scoring position. In one instance, they ran out of a run when Yasiel Puig was caught in a rundown between third base and home plate. In another, Joc Pederson was thrown out trying to go from first to third on a single to right field with no outs in the fourth inning. Phillies right fielder Jeff Francoeur racked up his 125th career outfield assist on the play – his strong right arm hardly a surprise in his 11th major league season.“That’s something we’ve been harping on for three or four years now,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said of his team’s baserunning mistakes. “It doesn’t seem to get a whole lot better.”Should Pederson know better than to run on Francoeur?“He should,” Mattingly said. “It’s back to your baserunning principles. You’re not going to make your first out at third base. If you’re going to go to third there, you’re going to be sure. It’s really just back to your principles that you learn coming through the minor leagues, that you’ve learned playing baseball your whole life.”
