It marked the first time the Phillies accomplished the feat since May 18, 2004, when Bobby Abreu, Pat Burrell and Jim Thome hit consecutive homers against the Dodgers.
Friday's first-inning fireworks began with two outs and nobody on. Chase Utley started the long ball show with a drive into the right-field bullpen off Todd Wellemeyer for his Major League-leading 22nd homer.
Ryan Howard, returning to his hometown, showed his strength to the opposite field with a 346-foot homer that dropped into the seats near the left-field foul pole. Then Burrell made it three straight with a shot into the left-field stands.
It was No. 16 for Howard and No. 17 for Burrell.
