Wade Miley's Effort Wasted In Dodgers' Comeback Win

The Arizona Diamondbacks hit two home runs and got another quality start from rookie sensation Wade Miley, but it was all for not as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied from a pair of two-run deficits to win Sunday's game 5-4 on a walkoff double by Adrian Gonzalez.

The Dodgers got runners on first and second, Mark Ellis and Shane Victorino, off D-backs closer J.J. Putz in the bottom of the ninth with one out. Gonzalez roped a line drive to right field, bringing home Ellis easily. The throw to get the speedy Victorino at the plate never had a chance.

Putz blew his fourth save opportunity of the season. The Diamondbacks (66-69) head to San Francisco next.

Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero got his fourth career hit against Dodgers pitcher Chris Capuano. Three of those are home runs, including the two-run shot Montero hit in the top of the fourth inning to give the D-backs a 3-1 lead.

Arizona trailed 1-0 after Matt Kemp homered off Miley to lead off the second inning. The Dodgers had a chance to add on, but stranded runners at first and third .

John McDonald tied it with a solo home run in the top of the third, and the Dodgers had recorded two out with Capuano ahead on Montero early in the count in the fourth. Montero worked it to 3-2, then launched his home run into the Arizona bullpen.

Diamondbacks made it 4-2 in the seventh, but the Dodgers cut it to one in their half of the seventh and had runners on second and third after D-backs outfielders Justin Upton and Chris Young let Gonzalez's fly ball to deep right-center drop due to miscommunication.

Brad Ziegler got Kemp to ground out harmlessly to shortstop to the end the inning, however.

The D-backs fell to 11-22 in one run games this season.
