LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Dee Gordon didn’t let his fielding affect him at the plate.

Gordon’s three stolen bases sparked the Dodgers to a come-from-behind victory on Sunday night, beating the New York Mets, 8-3.

Gordon committed back-to-back errors in the third inning, as the Mets staked a 3-1 lead over Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

But Los Angeles battled back in the fifth, thanks to some shaky defense by New York; the Dodgers caught tied the game after A.J. Ellis’ fly ball scored Tony Gwynn.

The Dodgers broke things open in the seventh, with nobody on and one out, Gordon singled, then stole second and third and was later cashed in on a fielder’s choice that scored two runs after an error by Mets catcher Mike Nickeas.

James Loney completed the seventh inning rally and ended his 0-28 drought by doubling home Juan Rivera, giving the Dodgers an 8-3 lead.

Kershaw, who was named to the All-Star team, went seven innings, allowing three runs, one earned, while striking out nine.
