Puig, Dodgers walk off in 11

LOS ANGELES -- Yasiel Puig homered with two outs in the 11th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Redson Sunday.

Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts. Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowiczeach fanned three times as the Dodgers established their highest single-game total for strikeouts since the franchise moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles following the 1957 season.

Puig drove an 0-1 pitch deep into the left-field pavilion against rookie Chris Partch (0-1) for his 10th homer and 23rd RBI in 48 big league games. The excitable rookie circled the bases and slid into home plate, where teammates were waiting for him.
