League blows ninth inning lead, Dodgers fall to D'backs 5-4

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Willie Bloomquist drove in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded two-run infield single in the ninth inning against Los Angeles closer Brandon League, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks rally for a 5-4 victory over the Dodgers on Monday night.

The D-backs closed to 3-2 on pinch-hitter Jason Kubel's infield single to second base that scored Martin Prado, who singled with one out in the ninth. Gerardo Parra doubled to deep center before League walked pinch-hitter Didi Gregorius to load the bases.

Bloomquist hit a sharp grounder that shortstop Nick Punto stopped with a dive behind second base but couldn't hold onto the ball and Parra and Josh Wilson, running for Kubel, scored to give the D-backs a 4-3 lead, their first of the game.

Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .500 after the first eight games of his career. He singled three times.
