Dodgers Vs. Mets Final Score: 5-Run Rally In 12th Gives L.A. 8-3 Win, Sweep

In a game that took nearly five hours and saw 40 players used by both teams combined, the Los Angeles Dodgers completed their sweep of the New York Mets. Matt Treanor hit a go-ahead two-run single as part of a five-run 12th inning, leading the Dodgers to an 8-3 win over the Mets on Sunday afternoon at Citi Field.

Josh Wall pitched a scoreless 11th inning in his major league debut to pick up the win. Wall is the first Dodger to win a game in relief in his major league debut since Tim Belcher on September 6, 1987.

Juan Rivera hit a two-run home run for the Dodgers, who have won four straight games. Matt Kemp went 2-for-6 and scored twice in his fourth straight two-hit game.

With Kenley Jansen unavailable on Sunday, Javy Guerra was brought into the game in the ninth inning with a 3-2 lead. In his first save opportunity since May 6, Guerra allowed a run for a blown save, but was able to pitch through the 10th inning, getting the ball to Wall, who hadn't pitched since getting recalled to the Dodgers on July 14.

"Being here for a few days got me settled down, got the nerves settled down, and got the butterflies out of the way," Wall said.

Mark Ellis and A.J. Ellis each had two hits for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers head to St. Louis for a four-game series with the Cardinals beginning Monday. Chad Billingsley will be activated from the disabled list to start the series opener, facing Joe Kelly for the Cardinals.
