Facing right-handed reliever Jake Petricka with one out, Yasiel Puig hit a two-run, walk-off double as the Dodgers scored a 5-4 comeback victory in front of a sellout crowd Wednesday.

The Dodgers won Wednesday thanks to a three-run ninth, and they continue to run away with the top record in baseball at 85-34.

Leury Garcia, Nicky Delmonico and Jose Abreu homered off Darvish, who gave up three runs and eight hits in six innings.

It was the second straight day that the White Sox hit a leadoff home run, and the first time in franchise history that Chicago hit a leadoff home run on the first pitch of the game on back-to-back days.

The victory salvaged the much-anticipated home debut of Yu Darvish, who didn't figure in the decision while pitching on his 31st birthday. Delmonico extended his hitting streak to 11 games and has reached base safely in all 13 career games.

It was a far cry from the last time Rodon faced the Dodgers, a July 19 game in Chicago in which he allowed four home runs. They had yet to settle in their seats when Garcia homered on Darvish's first pitch of the game.

Marcus Stroman pitched 6 1/3 innings, Steve Pearce homered and scored twice and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. It's a slightly different story in the AL, but even there, the team with the fewest allowed, Cleveland, is at 449 - and they haven't scored as many runs as the Dodgers. He struck out a career-low two and walked one in his third game for his new team since being acquired in a deadline deal from Texas last month. The Dodgers salvaged his night by scoring three in the ninth for their major league-leading 10th walk-off victory of the season.

After a single from catcher Austin Barnes moved Forsythe to third, Puig delivered as he became the latest hero in a season of heroes for Los Angeles.

The Dodgers are still on pace to finish with 115 wins, just one shy of the record for the majors.

After an off-day on Thursday, the Dodgers will travel to Detroit for a three-game weekend series with the Tigers.
