Will Smith slugged a pinch-hit, three-run walk-off homer on Tuesday evening, lifting the Dodgers to a dramatic 8-6 comeback victory over the Giants. Wow. Smith came off the bench to complete the Dodgers improbable ninth-inning rally with a majestic 420-foot blast into the left-field seats against righty side-winder Tyler Rogers. It was his 12th round-tripper of the season. The 26-year-old backstop owns a robust .264/.369/.475 triple-slash line with 40 runs scored, 12 homers, 42 RBI and two steals across 290 plate appearances.
