Dodgers Vs. Diamondbacks Game Recap: Adrian Gonzalez Hits Walk-off Double In 5-4 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally broke through late against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday afternoon, winning by a score of 5-4. The team trailed most of the game and were two outs away from a series loss, but it was a big hit off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez that saved the day.

Matt Kemp got things going in the second inning with a solo homer to right field, which was his 18th of the season. The D-backs tied things up in the third after John McDonald hit a solo blast of his own off Chris Capuano. Miguel Montero followed in the fourth with a two-run shot, giving Arizona a 3-1 lead.

Andre Ethier grounded out in the sixth inning and plated Kemp to cut the deficit to 3-2. The Diamondbacks battled right back though, scoring a run on an RBI-single from McDonald. Shane Victorino responded in the bottom half of the seventh with a single up the middle that scored A.J. Ellis, which cut the lead to 4-3.

In the ninth inning with J.J. Putz on the mound, Mark Ellis got the rally started with a single. Shane Victorino walked, bringing Gonzalez up to the plate. The slugger took a 0-2 fastball and cracked it down the right field line, scoring Ellis easily and Victorino just ahead of the tag. Dodgers win 5-4.

The two clubs split the four-game series, with both sides taking two games.
