LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yasiel Puig raced home for the winning run on his own single after center fielder Michael Taylor let the ball skip by him for a three-base error, and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Wednesday night.
Puig broke into a sprint at first base after Taylor overran the rolling single to left-center field. Howie Kendrick scored easily from first base, and Puig dove home to beat the throw from the outfield and give the Dodgers their fifth comeback win in six games.
Taylor was also 0 for 5 with five strikeouts from the leadoff spot.
Wilson Ramos hit a solo homer in the eighth inning of Pedro Baez to put Washington ahead 3-2.
Chris Hatcher (5-3) got one out in the ninth inning and the win.
Shawn Kelley (1-1) allowed the singles to Kendrick and Puig in the ninth.
