Diamondbacks walk past Dodgers in 10th inning

LOS ANGELES -- Late-inning deficits are no problem for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Chris Young scored the go-ahead run on a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning, lifting NL West-leading Arizona to a 5-4 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. It was the Diamondbacks' 44th comeback victory, tops in the majors.

"We get frustrated sometimes, but overall just a good game," said manager Kirk Gibson, a former Dodgers star. "We felt the pressure, but we performed well. We didn't make any big mistakes and finally got a run across."

Gerardo Parra sparked the Diamondbacks with a tying home run off Hong-Chih Kuo with two outs in the seventh, then a leadoff single in the 10th.

After Aaron Hill sacrificed and Justin Upton struck out, Javy Guerra (2-1) issued consecutive walks to Miguel Montero, Paul Goldschmidt and Young, helping Arizona win its second straight and sixth in seven games. The Diamondbacks are 8-4 in extra-inning games.

"It's a pressure situation," Young said of Guerra's jam. "He had been so successful at home and he has great stuff. He lost control. It happens every now and then."

Micah Owings (7-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the victory and J.J. Putz finished for his 40th save in 44 chances.

Arizona starter Ian Kennedy was denied his 20th victory. The right-hander gave up four runs and seven hits, struck out four and walked one in six innings. It was his most runs since July 3, when he allowed seven in a 7-2 loss at Oakland.

"I wasn't commanding it as well. It wasn't as sharp as it had been, especially with two strikes," said Kennedy, who was getting over a cold bug that has hit the team. "I kind of let the team down. It was tough."

Dodgers starter Chad Billingsley allowed three runs and four hits in 6 1/3 innings, struck out two and walked three in his fourth straight no-decision.

"The past few starts have been a rough stretch," he said. "I'm trying to find my delivery again and trying to figure it out, I guess. I'm just going to keep working."

Matt Kemp was hitless in five at-bats, including three strikeouts, for the Dodgers a day after going 2 for 4 with a home run in the series opener. Los Angeles has dropped three in a row.

Montero drove in three runs, including a two-run homer -- his career-best 16th -- in the first that gave Arizona the lead. His sacrifice fly in the third trimmed Los Angeles' advantage to 4-3.

The Dodgers scored four runs on five hits off Kennedy in the bottom of the first.

Kemp hit a sacrifice fly, then James Loney, Aaron Miles and Jerry Sands had two-out hits. Loney doubled into the right-field corner, Miles singled to center and Sands doubled into the left-field corner to complete the scoring in the 34-minute inning.

Notes

  • The Dodgers lost their first extra-inning home game of the season and fell to 8-2 in extra-inning games.
  • Kennedy has allowed one run or fewer 15 times this season.
  • The Diamondbacks are 7-2 at Dodger Stadium with one game remaining.
