LOS ANGELES -- The Philadelphia Phillies didn't waste any time ending the Los Angeles Dodgers' six-game winning streak.

Delmon Young drove in a career-high six runs, and Michael Young and Chase Utley scored three runs apiece in the Phillies' 16-1 drubbing of the Dodgers on Friday night at Dodger Stadium.

The margin of defeat was the largest since the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. It was the largest in club history at home since July 3, 1947, against the New York Giants when they lost by 17.

Dodgers starter Chris Capuano, who had pitched 11 scoreless innings since coming off of the disabled list on June 11, was tagged for three runs in the first and second innings.

Delmon Young drove in one run in the first inning and hit a two-run double in the second. Michael Young also homered off Capuano, who lasted 3 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (five earned) and 10 hits.

Peter Moylan replaced Capuano and fared slightly better. He was tagged for five runs, with four of them coming in the sixth.

Domonic Brown give the Phillies a 9-0 lead in the sixth when his single to right field allowed Michael Young to beat a throw to the plate by Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig.

Delmon Young added his fourth RBI with a grounder and John Mayberry followed with a two-run homer to give the Phillies a 12-0 advantage.

The Phillies scored in seven of the first eight innings, capped by a four-run seventh. The big hit in that inning was a two-run single by Delmon Young.
