LOS ANGELES (AP) Yasiel Puig turned a slow bouncer past the Mets' diving shortstop into a one-out double in the 12th inning then scored on Adrian Gonzalez's two-base hit, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over New York on Wednesday night that extended their winning streak to eight games.

Andre Ethier tied the game with a two-run homer of LaTroy Hawkins in the ninth inning.

Puig legged out a double that glanced off the glove of shortstop Omar Quintinalla and into center field after going hitless in his first five at-bats. Gonzalez hit the next pitch off Pedro Feliciano (0-1) down the left field line, maintaining the Dodgers' 7 1/2-game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Paco Rodriguez (3-2) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings for the victory.

The Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Mets with their sixth walk-off win of the season.
