Bradley hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning Tuesday, and the Dodgers rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6.
Bradley has a seven-game hitting streak, hitting .444 (12-for-27). He has at least one hit in each of his 12 starts this year and his only hitless game came as a pinch hitter on April 10 at Arizona.
"If you look at what we've been able to do in one-run games over the past couple of years, it's indicative of a ballclub that understands what it has to do to win games like that," Dodgers manager Jim Tracy said.
It was the biggest comeback for Los Angeles since the Dodgers overcame a six-run deficit at Montreal on Aug. 11, 1999.
Milwaukee, which has lost five straight, scored six runs in the fourth inning after Dodgers starter Elmer Dessens left because of muscle spasms in the back of his right shoulder. Tracy said Dessens was day to day and it was too early to tell whether Dessens would be able to take his next turn in the rotation.
Pinch-hitter Jason Grabowski began the comeback with a leadoff homer in the sixth. Los Angeles closed to 6-5 in the seventh against Jorge De La Rosa on pinch-hitter Jason Phillips' RBI single, pinch-hitter Olmedo Saenz's RBI double and Cesar Izturis' two-run double.
"We got into the ninth inning with a one-run lead and I let the team down," Adams said. "It's as simple as that."
J.D. Drew walked against Tommy Phelps (0-1) leading off the 10th, and Bradley homered one out later on a 1-2 pitch, his fifth of the year.
"It's a tremendous team win," said Tracy, who used all of his position players and five relievers. "When you look at my lineup card and see the number of players involved, I think that would constitute a total team effort."
Milwaukee loaded the bases when J.J. Hardy walked, pitcher Gary Glover was hit by a pitch and Brady Clark walked. After Junior Spivey took a called third strike, Lyle Overbay hit a fly to center that was misplayed by Bradley into a three-run double as the ball rolled to the wall.
Glover allowed three runs and five hits in six innings.
Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said his team needed to quickly get over the loss and prepare for its series against the Astros. The Brewers are 4-1 against Pittsburgh and 1-7 against other teams.
"We have a tough game tomorrow," he said. "These games hurt, but you can't wallow in pity for long."
