I was looking at arrivals into PHL, and I noticed America West flight 7599 departed CVG at 737PM last night (Thurs) and arrived into PHL at 904PM.
Being a Phillies fan, I know that Dodgers are due in Philadelphia for a weekend series with the Phillies, and that they played a day game with the Reds yesterday, so this seems that it may be their flight...

I do know when the Dodgers were in Milwaukee earlier this year, they flew out on an America West 757 because I saw it take off (it was following the Shawn Green 4-homer game). However, the Dodgers were heading to Arizona to play the Diamondbacks. So perhaps that may be a reason why they chartered HP?
But it seems typically teams use one charter for the year.
They obtained the B-720 on January 26, 1971 from American Airlines, reregistered it as N1R, and named it after Kay O'Malley, the wife of Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley. It was operated by the Dodgers until until April 1, 1983, when it was sold to Great American Airways. It was broken up in Tucson.
I don't have any info on the Electra.
