LOS ANGELES (AP) - Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.
Rookie left-hander Jake Diekman (2-0) walked Mark Ellis with one out and Kemp drove a 1-0 pitch the other way into the pavilion seats in right-center for his 13th home run and sixth career walkoff homer, capping the 4-hour, 25-minute marathon.
Jamey Wright (4-2), the sixth Dodgers pitcher, worked one inning for the victory as the Dodgers ended a four-game losing streak.
Hunter Pence hit a two-run single in the 10th inning with the bases loaded to give Philadelphia a 3-1 lead.
But the Dodgers responded with two in the bottom half against closer Jonathan Papelbon, whose blown save was his third in 24 opportunities.
