The Los Angeles Dodgers weren’t going to go down without a fight on Saturday night, as they hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the ninth against the Philadelphia Phillies to tie the game.
Yasiel Puig started the home-run parade off, followed by rookie Cody Bellinger‘s second mash of the game. Bellinger hit his first career home run just two innings earlier. Justin Turner capped off the comeback with a pinch-hit blast – his first of the year – to tie the game 5-5. Phillies reliever Hector Neris, who entered the game with a three-run lead – was the victim of all three big flies.
It’s the Dodgers’ first comeback win entering the bottom of the ninth inning down three or more runs since 2013, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
For the game, the Dodgers hit five home runs with the other coming courtesy of Andrew Toles in the first inning. It’s the fifth time since 2016 the Dodgers have combined to hit five home runs in one game.
