br> Starter Mark Hendrickson (4-5) and Eric Stults were batted around, allowing 11 runs and 19 hits over the first five innings.
br> Manager Grady Little summed it up quite well: "It's extraordinary for something like this to happen to us, but at least nobody got injured.
br> Hendrickson was lit up for seven earned runs on 11 hits over three-plus hideous innings. He allowed three runs in the first, worked out of a bases-loaded, nobody-out jam in the second, threw a perfect third and then was unable to get out of the fourth, giving up four more runs without retiring a batter.
br> Young Eric Stults took over and fared little better, allowing eight hits and four runs over three innings. Rudy Seanez, Jonathan Broxton and Joe Beimel were hit freely, with only Broxton being able to keep the Phillies off the scoreboard.
br> With the next off-day 17 days down the road, the bullpen is starting to wear thin and thoughts of adding a 12th man has cropped up again.
br> Starters Jason Schmidt, Randy Wolf and Hong-Chih Kuo are on the disabled list, along with relievers Chin-hui Tsao and Yhency Brazoban. Some are advocating a trade but the Dodgers have both veteran Roberto Hernandez and rookie Jonathan Meloan in the minor leagues and either or both should be given a shot at helping out before the trading deadline the last day of July.
br> The Dodgers had 14 hits, double-digits for the seventh consecutive game, and were led by three from former Phillies catcher Mike Lieberthal who was giving Dodger MVP Russell Martin a rare day off.
br> Outfielders Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier had two hits each and Ramon Martinez, taking over for second baseman Jeff Kent when the game went South early in the evening, knocking a pair of runs.
br> Someone once said, "a loss is a loss is a loss" (it sounds like Casey Stengel) and this sort of a drubbing is easier to take than losing a 1-0 or 2-1 decision and wasting a good pitching effort.
br> In the 12:10 p.m. series finale this afternoon at Dodger Stadium, Chad Billingsley (6-0, 3.26 ERA) opposes the Phillies Kyle Kendrick (3-0, 4.40).

Att- 45,074.Dodger Blue Notes-- Rookie James Loney, who was 0-for-4 but still finished the game with a .367 average, is impressing everyone with his fielding prowess. He saved a game in the 10th inning at San Francisco and was instrumental in the first game of the S.F. series, turning a Barry Bonds smash into a double play. "This kid has a chance to win a Gold Glove in the major leagues before it's over," Dodgers manager Grady Little said. "He plays good defense, and he has good hands. You might go a few days and not see anything, then all of a sudden see something you have never seen." ...Mike Lieberthal started behind the plate so Russell Martin would be fresh for today's early-afternoon game but Little said Lieberthal still won't get much playing time in the second half. ...Bill Mueller is getting credit for the resurgence of outfielder Andre Ethier who was hitting .261 when Mueller replaced silent Eddie Murray. After a 2-for-2 night, Ethier's average was up to .297. ...Catcher Mike Lieberthal, who got flowers and balloons from his teammates on his last start, was treated to a 15-minute video presentation of career highlights, the latest mock celebration of the seldom-used Lieberthal. One wonders what's in store for his next start. "This is going to be really tough to top," Lieberthal said. ...Center fielder Juan Pierre entered Tuesday night's game with 38 stolen bases and is on pace to finish the season with a career-high 66, which would be the most for a Dodger since Davey Lopes led the league with 77 in 1975. Lopes is in town as Phillies first-base coach. ...Randy Wolf reports his shoulder continues to improve and he hopes to be throwing off a mound by Friday or Saturday. He is likely at least a month away from seeing action.
