PHOENIX (AP) -- Ivan De Jesus hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth to give the Dodgers the lead and Dee Gordon went airborne to turn a game-ending double play as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied past the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-7 on Tuesday night.
The Diamondbacks, who squandered a five-run lead going into the seventh, took a 7-6 lead in the bottom of the eighth on Lyle Overbay's homer off Josh Lindblom (2-0).
J.J. Putz (0-3) couldn't close it for Arizona, allowing De Jesus to drive a double to center and make it 8-7.
With runners on first and third in the bottom of the ninth, Kenley Jansen got Jason Kubel to ground to second and Gordon leaped over a late sliding Justin Upton to make a one-hop throw and complete the double play.
