MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 5, Arizona 4

Sept. 2, 2012 at 7:37 PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Adrian Gonzalez lashed a game-winning, two-run double in the ninth inning Sunday, rallying the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 comeback win over Arizona.

The Dodgers came into the ninth trailing 4-3 and were looking at the possibility of falling 5 1/2 games behind National League West-leading San Francisco, which had beaten the Chicago Cubs earlier Sunday.

But Mark Ellis delivered a one-out single against Diamondbacks closer J.J. Putz (1-5) and Shane Victorino coaxed a walk.

Gonzalez then came up and laced an 0-2 pitch down the right field line and into the corner, sending both runners home to salvage a victory for the Dodgers.

Ronald Belisario (4-1) earned the win with a scoreless top of the ninth for Los Angeles, which split a four-game series with the D-backs.

Miguel Montero socked a two-run homer and John McDonald added two RBI, including a solo shot, for Arizona.
