Corey Seager delivered a walk-off RBI double, scoring Yasiel Puig in the bottom of the 9th inning, as the Dodgers got by the Reds 5-4 on Saturday night at Chavez Ravine.
Seager hit a ball to left field which caused outfielder Scooter Gennett to dive for the ball and miss it. The ball bounced up against the fence, which allowed Puig to score easily and win the game for LA.
Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless 9th inning to improve to 4-0 on the season.
The Dodgers built a 4-0 and 4-1 before giving it all back to the Reds. Josh Fields came into the game to relieve Alex Wood in the 6th inning. He came into the game with two on and two out.
Devin Mesoraco greeted Fields with a 3-run homer, tying the game at 4-4. It was his 5th long ball of the season.
The Dodgers built a 3-0 lead against Reds’ starter Asher Wojciechowski in the 1st inning. Seager drove in Chase Utley with an RBI double, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Adrian Gonzales. Cody Bellinger drilled his 13th homer of the season to cap the 1st inning rally.
Former Dodger Jose Peraza got the Reds on the board in the 3rd inning with an RBI single. That snapped a 27-inning scoreless streak by Wood.
Wood went 5 2/3 innings, and was charged with 3 runs on 5 hits. He struck out seven, but did not factor into the decision.
Wojciechowski gave up four runs on 6 hits and 5 innings of work. Drew Soren (1-2) took the loss after allowing two one out singles in the 9th.
The Dodgers will go for the sweep on Sunday afternoon at the Ravine. Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-6, 4.08 ERA) will be on the mound for LA. Tim Adleman (4-2, 4.42 ERA).
