LOS ANGELES (AP) - Adam LaRoche came off the bench in the ninth inning and drove in five runs, including a tying homer and later a go-ahead grounder in the 14th that sent the Washington Nationals to a wild 8-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday.
Asdrubal Cabrera added a two-run shot in the final inning for the Nationals, who withstood two late rallies in a game that lasted 5 hours, 34 minutes - the longest at Dodger Stadium this season. Washington took two of three in the series, a potential playoff preview between NL division leaders.
All of LaRoche's RBIs either tied the game or gave his team the lead.
He delivered a pinch-hit, two-run homer that tied it in the ninth and a go-ahead, two-run single in the 12th.
