Ellis, Puig lead Dodgers past Blue Jays 8-3 in 10
TORONTO (AP) — Mark Ellis hit a two-run homer to highlight Los Angeles’ five-run 10th inning as the Dodgers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep.
Yasiel Puig also went deep in the 10th for the streaking Dodgers, who have won six straight and 23 of 28 to go from last in the NL West on June 21 to first place.

Brandon League (5-3) pitched two innings to beat his former team for the second straight game and Kenley Jansen finished for the Dodgers.
Juan Perez (1-2) gave up all five runs and four hits in the 10th inning for Toronto.
