LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Adrian Gonzalez doubled in the tying and winning runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday to gain a series split.

Gonzalez lined an 0-2 pitch into the right field corner off J.J. Putz (1-5) after Mark Ellis singled with one out and Shane Victorino walked.

Ronald Belisario (4-1) pitched a scoreless ninth and struck out three while allowing a double to Chris Johnson.

Matt Kemp ran up to Gonzalez and tossed a container of water on him during an on-field postgame interview. Gonzalez had struggled since being traded to the Dodgers from Boston on Aug. 25.
