LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers’ dugout emptied onto the field. Austin Barnes was nearly beaten to home plate by his own team, a group that’s seen this script play out so many times before.

Barnes scored the Dodgers’ third and final run in the ninth inning, the finishing touch on a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Trailing 4-2 when the inning began, the Dodgers (85-34) used a one-out rally to sweep their 16th series of the season.

Pinch hitter Cody Bellinger singled against Gregory Infante and scored on Logan Forsythe’s second double of the game.

Barnes singled to center field, sending Forsythe to third base. Both runners scored on a double to the left-center field gap by Yasiel Puig.

In the home debut of Yu Darvish, the Dodgers’ pitcher hardly figured into the final outcome on his 31st birthday.

Nicky Delmonico hit a solo home run in the fourth inning against Darvish and another in the eighth inning against left-handed reliever Tony Watson. The White Sox scored all four of their runs on solo home runs – a tone that was set on the game’s first pitch.

Leury Garcia greeted the announced crowd of 52,413 – some of whom used the last 16 days to acquire a number 21 Darvish Dodgers jersey – by launching a home run off an advertisement attached to the right field foul pole. That quieted the denizens quickly.

The atmosphere didn’t recover until the ninth inning.

Jose Abreu also hit a home run for the White Sox. The Dodgers will fly to Detroit on Thursday and begin a three-game interleague series against the Tigers on Friday. They’ll conclude the trip with four games in Pittsburgh.

White Sox starter Carlos Rodon made a strong lineup look weak. The left-hander allowed two runs on five hits – four singles and a double – over 7⅓ innings. He walked four and struck out four.

It was a far cry from the last time Rodon faced the Dodgers, a July 19 game in Chicago in which he allowed four home runs. The Dodgers won that game, 9-1.

The birthday boy did not enjoy the same run support Wednesday. It didn’t help that Darvish was not as sharp as his first two starts since the July 31 trade.

Darvish, who is averaging more than a strikeout per inning this season, did not strike out a batter for the first five innings. He finished with two – a career low in his 125th major league game. Of the 22 balls the White Sox put in play against him, nine were hit 97 mph or faster. Eight fell for hits.

A couple double-play balls helped Darvish avoid a worse fate. With a runner on first base and one out in the first inning, Delmonico hit a line drive into the glove of first baseman Rob Segedin, who stepped on the base to end the inning. In the third inning, a leadoff single by Rodon went to waste when Leury Garcia grounded into a double play.

Abreu’s home run to lead off the sixth inning snapped a 2-2 tie. Delmonico’s second home run of the game, in the eighth inning, gave Chicago a 4-2 lead.

More to come on this story.
