PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia Phillies first basemen Bryce Harper and designated hitter Kyle Schwarber were back in the lineup Tuesday night to face the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Both players were reinstated from the 10-day injured list, the team announced before the game.

Harper and Schwarber were injured in the same game against the Miami Marlins in late June. Harper suffered a left hamstring strain, while Schwarber suffered a left groin strain.

After a modest 5-4 mark with Harper and Schwarber sidelined - that included dropping two of three over the weekend in Atlanta - the Phillies flexed their muscle early against the Dodgers in a matchup of NL division leaders.

The Fightins', with help from a Trea Turner grand slam, defeated the Dodgers 10-1 in the first of the three-game series.

The Phillies lost ace Zack Wheeler on a steamy night with left lower back tightness after five innings.

Wheeler won his 10th game of the season. He joined Aaron Nola and Ranger Suárez as a trio of Phillies pitchers with 10 wins before the All-Star break.
