Loney delivers after being lifted in key spot
LOS ANGELES -- One night after manager Don Mattingly opted to pinch-hit rookie Ivan De Jesus with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning in place of James Loney, the first baseman delivered offensively to help the Dodgers snap their two-game skid.

Loney collected three hits and two runs in the 6-3 walk-off win against the Astros, as the Dodgers remained the only team in the Majors without a three-game losing streak.

He started things off with a leadoff two-strike single in the fourth inning and scored four batters later on a two-RBI single by Tony Gwynn. He scored again in the ninth on A.J. Ellis' three-run walk-off homer after being intentionally walked with one out and Andre Ethier on second.

As to whether he was shaken the night before after being pinch-hit for with the bases loaded, Loney said: "There's nothing that could ever do that."
