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.
