The Dodgers entered the ninth inning down 5-2, needing a little bit of magic to mount a comeback against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Magic is what they delivered.

Puig, Bellinger, Turner.@Dodgers go BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK for the comeback.

The Dodgers launched three consecutive home runs off the bats of Puig, Bellinger and then Turner to start the ninth inning and tied the game at 5-5.
Adrian Gonzalez then sent everyone home with a single that weaseled its way though the Phillies shortstop and third baseman, scoring Austin Barnes.
The final score was a 6-5 win for the Dodgers, pushing them above .500 with a 13-12 record.
The game gave flashbacks of the legendary “4 + 1” game and was perfectly described by Joe Davis as “absolute madness”.
