Down to their last strike in the ninth inning Wednesday night in Toronto, the Dodgers somehow finished off a perfect road trip coming out of the All-Star break with an 8-3 victory over the Blue Jays, as Mark Ellis and Yasiel Puig homered to trigger a five-run 10th inning.

Ellis, who was 11-for-25 while the Dodgers were going 6-0 against Washington and Toronto, homered off Juan Perez in the 10th after a walk to Juan Uribe.

One out later, Puig homered into the Blue Jays' bullpen, his ninth of the season, but first since July 2. 

Brandon League picked up his second win in as many games after the Dodgers rallied to tie the game with two outs in the ninth and ex-Lookout Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless 10th as the Dodgers won their 10th consecutive road game for the first time since 1954. The franchise record of 12 was set in 1924.

The Dodgers are in first place in the National League West with a 1.0 lead over second-place Arizona.

Bobby Stone, Is It Really A Win? - And Response

It brought a smile to my face this morning when I saw where the case was thrown out of court against Mr. Stone and the domestic violence charge.  I have supported his cause from the beginning, but I do feel heartbreak because his personal life had to be tossed out there for all of us to see.   I truly hope and pray things turn around for him and his wife, while I feel ...
