Dodgers rally for 5-4 win over Arizona

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Ronnie Belliard hit the last of Los Angeles' five two-out singles in the eighth inning, breaking a tie and giving the Dodgers a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks last night.

Right-hander Billy Buckner limited Los Angeles to one run and five hits in seven innings before the Dodgers cashed in against the Arizona bullpen for their third victory in a row.

Arizona tied a franchise record with five double plays. The Diamondbacks put the tying run on base when Gerardo Parra singled with two outs in the ninth inning, but Jonathan Broxton got his 34th save by getting Justin Upton to hit a comebacker.

Broxton had his second save in as many days and third in four games.

The Dodgers lead the series 2-0.

Arizona will try to prevent a sweep in tonight's series finale, when right-hander Dan Haren is expected to start against the former Diamondback-turned-Dodgers right-hander Jon Garland.
