April 3 – Bryce Harper hit three home runs, including a grand slam, and drove in a career-best six runs to lift the host Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.

It was the second career three-homer game for Harper and his first since 2015. Brandon Marsh added a solo home run and two singles for the Phillies.

Philadelphia starter Spencer Turnbull (1-0) tossed five innings and allowed three hits and one unearned run to go along with seven strikeouts and no walks.

Philadelphia went ahead 1-0 in the first inning when Harper snapped an 0-for-11 skid by launching a solo shot to center field. In the fourth, Harper hit his second home run, this time to right, for a 2-1 advantage. It was also his 1,000th career run. His grand slam in the seventh turned a 4-1 game into an 8-1 blowout.

Dodgers 5, Giants 4

Mookie Betts hit his major-league-leading fifth home run and Los Angeles continued to lean on a consistent offense in a victory over visiting San Francisco.
