DSL – The Dominican Dodgers walked off against the Royals on Monday with a 4 to 3 win in 12 innings. Shortstop Moises Perez was a bit of a one man show in this one as he doubled in the tying run in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and the game on the line, then singled to lead off the bottom of the 12th. After Perez was sacrificed over to 2nd, he took it upon himself to steal 3rd base which forced a throwing error by the catcher and allowed Moises to race home for the winning run.
