Home runs by Adrian Gonzalez (watch) and Andre Ethier (watch) put the Dodgers ahead 4-3 in the sixth inning, but a possible missed balk call sent the game into extras tied 4-4. The Dodgers won 5-4 in the 14th inning on a bases-loaded single by Gonzalez. Winning pitcher Chris Hatcher called it “probably our biggest win of the season.”

The box score is here. The photo gallery is here.

The Dodgers lead the National League West by 4 ½ games. It’s their biggest lead since July 12 and not far from their season-high of 5 ½ games. Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw are lined up to start their next two.

Kiké Hernandez landed on the 15-day disabled list prior to the game. Afterward he said he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain that felt better compared to the previous day. He’s optimistic he can be activated once his time is up on Sept. 15.

Did Sergio Romo balk in the ninth inning Monday?

Here’s what San Francisco Giants pitcher Sergio Romo did before throwing his second pitch to Dodgers hitter Jimmy Rollins in the ninth inning Monday. Watch Romo’s right knee:

If that knee moved, it’s a balk, and Jose Peraza should have been awarded home plate — the winning run in a 4-4 game.
