    LA DODGERS 6, PHILADELPHIA 2 

    PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Brad Penny shined once again. He also joined in the offensive fun for a change.

    Penny allowed one run in seven strong innings and also drove in the go-ahead run as the Los Angeles Dodgers posted a 6-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies to salvage a split of a doubleheader.

    After his game-winning three-run homer lifted the Phillies to a 6-3 victory in the opener, Bobby Abreu opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning.

    However, Penny (2-0) kept the Phillies' bats silent thereafter, holding them to just four singles and a walk overall. The righthander also struck out six, giving him 14 strikeouts against only one walk in 12 innings this season.

    Entering with a .132 career average, Penny also did some damage with his bat in the fourth, when he snapped a 1-1 tie with a bloop single to center off Philadelphia starter Jon Lieber.

    J.D. Drew homered in the second inning and former Phillie Ramon Martinez added a two-run double in the eighth for the Dodgers, who also got two hits and two runs from rookie James Loney and three hits and an RBI from Sandy Alomar Jr.

    Coming off a horrendous outing on Opening Day, Lieber (0-2) bounced back to yield two runs and eight hits in seven innings. Abreu collected three hits and drove in both runs for Philadelphia, which fell short of sweeping a doubleheader for the 10th time in its last 15 tries.
