The catcher homered off Phillies right-handed starter Aaron Nola leading off the fourth inning to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead, then greeted left-handed reliever Adam Morgan leading off the sixth inning to provide a 4-1 lead at the time. It was the third time he's homered right-handed and left-handed in the same game with the Dodgers.

Grandal also singled in the first inning and is 20-for-49 (.408) with five homers and 11 RBIs in July.

Grandal will be a free agent after this season.
