Kemp’s Walk-Off HR Beats Braves In 12

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp hit his second game-ending homer in five days, connecting in the 12th inning Thursday to lift the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Atlanta Braves 5-3.

Both teams were down to their final strike much earlier.


Ross hit a two-out, two-run single in the top of the ninth to put the Braves ahead 3-2. Casey Blake, who had homered earlier, hit an RBI single in the bottom half to make it 3-all.

Andre Ethier doubled with one out in the Dodgers 12th against Christhian Martinez (0-1). Kemp drove an 0-2 pitch over the fence in left-center for his fourth homer of the season.

On Sunday, Kemp hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to beat St. Louis 2-1.

    You think it is a coincidence that Matt Kemp before Rhianna was on fire and now after Rhianna he is a beast. His focus was not there when he was dating her. Not blaming her but this is a young guy dating a beautiful superstar, of course he lost some focus. Now he is back to normal. Stay away from the Divas Kemp!
