The Dodgers 3-2 late afternoon 13th inning victory over the Mets wasn't a typical finish.

Clutch hitter James Loney, who rarely hits for power, crushed his seventh home run of the season, a solo shot off of Mets reliver Oliver Perez (0-4) to walk off a game that had seen sixteen total pitchers across 4:15.

“James saved the day for us,” said manager Joe Torre. “The one thing I can only tell you about Loney: don’t take your eyes off him.”
