LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Adrian Gonzalez doubled in the tying and winning runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday to gain a series split. Gonzalez lined an 0-2 pitch into the right field corner off J.J. Putz (1-5) after Mark Ellis singled with one out and Shane Victorino walked. Ronald Belisario (4-1) pitched a scoreless ninth and struck out three while allowing a double to Chris Johnson. Matt Kemp ran up to Gonzalez and tossed a container of water on him during an on-field postgame interview. Gonzalez had struggled since being traded to the Dodgers from Boston on Aug. 25. Despite blowing two one-run leads earlier in the game, the Dodgers gained the split after winning 2-1 behind Josh Beckett on Saturday night. John McDonald and Miguel Montero each scored a run and drove in two others for the Diamondbacks. Each of the four games in the series was decided by two runs or fewer. Montero's two-run homer with two outs in the fourth inning gave Arizona a 3-1 lead after McDonald's homer leading off the third had tied the score 1-1. The Dodgers took a 3-2 lead in the sixth on Andre Ethier's RBI groundout to second base that scored Kemp, who walked and advanced to third on a double by Hanley Ramirez. Kemp hit his 18th homer leading off the second for the Dodgers' first lead of the game. Arizona extended its lead to 4-2 in the seventh when McDonald reached on an infield single to pitcher Shawn Tolleson, scoring Paul Goldschmidt, who singled, took second on Montero's single, and was sacrificed to third. The Dodgers pulled to 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh on Victorino's two-out RBI single that dropped in right field between Chris Young and Justin Upton. Dodgers starter Chris Capuano gave up three runs and four hits in five innings, struck out four and walked none. He made 78 pitches, his second-fewest of the season. Arizona rookie starter Wade Miley allowed three runs and nine hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out three and walked two. NOTES: Miley hasn't allowed more than two walks in 24 consecutive starts, extending the longest active streak in the majors this season. ... RHP Chad Billingsley is considering having another platelet-rich plasma injection in his injured right elbow. Manager Don Mattingly said Billingsley, who had the first one on Friday, is feeling "a little bit optimistic," but Mattingly said the club won't allow him to start throwing until he's pain-free. ... The Dodgers selected the contract of OF Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Albuquerque and recalled RHP Chris Withrow from Double-A Chattanooga before placing him on the 60-day DL. Abreu returned after hitting .353 in five games with the Isotopes since being designated for assignment on Aug. 1. He struck out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.
