NEW YORK, May 30 (UPI) -- Russell Martin had four hits and played a key role in a five-run eighth inning Friday that rallied the Los Angeles Dodgers past the New York Mets 9-5.
Martin drove in three runs, one of them with a homer in the fourth inning and another with a single during the eight-inning comeback. Martin also scored the final run of the inning on a single by Blake Dewitt.
The Dodgers halted a four-game losing streak.
Chan Ho Park (2-1) worked 3 1/3 innings of relief, his longest outing of the season, to get the win. Park came on to replace Clayton Kershaw, who in his second major league start gave up four runs on five hits in 3 2/3 innings.
The loss went to Aaron Heilman (0-2), who came on to protect a one-run lead in the eighth and did not retire a batter while giving up four runs on four hits.
Los Angeles went six for nine with runners in scoring position.
