Bryce Harper hit his third home run in three games and had three hits as the visiting Philadelphia Phillies continued to pour on the offense in an 8-3 victory Saturday over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jean Segura, Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins also hit home runs for the Phillies, who have scored 29 runs in the first three games of the four-game series, all victories. Philadelphia's previous high for runs in a three-game stretch at Dodger Stadium was 26 in June of 1976.

Phillies starter Ranger Suarez (4-1) gave up three runs on five hits over seven innings, with a walk and six strikeouts.

Mookie Betts hit a home run for the Dodgers, who are on a season-worst four-game losing streak and have lost five of their last six. Dodgers starter Julio Urias (2-3) gave up a career-high four home runs over six innings.

Segura had the night off Friday but returned to hit a three-run home run in the first inning, his sixth, while extending his hitting streak to 11 games. His two-out blast came in an inning that was extended by a throwing error from Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner.

Betts hit his sixth home run of the season to lead off the bottom of the first.

Harper responded two innings later with a blast into the Phillies' bullpen in right, his ninth. Harper has gone 8-for-12 in the series with seven extra-base hits.

All of Harper's production in the series has come after getting confirmation Friday that a small tear in the UCL of his right elbow will not prevent him from operating out of the designated-hitter role.

Schwarber and Hoskins each hit solo home runs in the fourth inning to give the Phillies an 8-1 advantage. It was Schwarber's ninth of the season and his second in two games, while Hoskins hit his sixth.

Cody Bellinger hit a two-run single for the Dodgers in the fourth inning. The Dodgers did not have a hit over the final five innings
