Bases-Loaded HBP In 8th helps Dodgers Beat Royals 5-4

CBS Los Angeles


 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis was facing one of the hottest relievers in baseball with two outs and the bases loaded in a tie game Wednesday night.

Ellis wound up taking one for the team.

He was plunked on the shoulder by Royals reliever Wade Davis, who had not allowed a run since April, and was the go-ahead run in a 5-4 victory over Kansas City.

“Our guys hung in there,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “We got behind. We threw some runs up there. They came back and we kept playing.”

Jamey Wright (3-2) threw 2 2-3 scoreless innings in relief of Dan Haren to pick up the win.

J.P. Howell and Brandon League worked the bottom of the eighth for the Dodgers, and Brian Wilson handled the ninth in place of closer Kenley Jansen for his first save since April 12, 2012.
