Teoscar Hernandez followed Jason Heyward's grand slam with a three-run homer in a seven-run ninth inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Colorado Rockies 11-9 on Tuesday in Denver.

It was the first time the Dodgers rallied from a five-run deficit in the ninth to win since July 18, 1957, when Brooklyn defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 10-9 in 11 innings.

The Rockies led 9-4 entering the ninth, but Colorado reliever Tyler Kinley loaded the bases with one out on two walks and a single. Heyward, pinch-hitting for Chris Taylor, homered off the foul pole in right to cut the deficit to one.

There were two runners on and two out when Hernandez homered to put Los Angeles ahead. Earlier, Ohtani socked a 476-foot homer, the longest hit in the majors this season.
