Abreu boosts Giants over Dodgers
San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Tony Abreu went 2-for-4 with a double, triple and four RBI to lead the San Francisco Giants past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-4, on Wednesday.
Pablo Sandoval added a pair of hits, including a two-run homer, and Buster Posey had two hits and a pair of runs scored for the Giants.
Barry Zito (5-11) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on four hits over five innings in what could be his final appearance with the ballclub.
The Giants have a $7 million buyout or an $18 million club option for 2014 on Zito, whose stint with the Giants has been less than impressive. Zito is 62-80 with a 4.63 ERA in San Francisco since the 2007 season and is 4-11 with a 5.91 ERA in 28 games (24 starts) in 2013.
Sergio Romo stranded a runner in the ninth to notch his 37th save of the season.
Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with two RBI and A.J. Ellis drove in a run for the Dodgers, who fell two games behind the Atlanta Braves for the second seed in the NL Playoffs.
Ricky Nolasco (13-11) was touched for all six runs on eight hits while fanning seven over 5 2/3 innings.
Abreu's three-run triple gave the Giants a 3-0 lead in the second inning.
The Dodgers came back with a pair of runs in the fourth. With two on and no outs, Kemp laced a double to left field to score Yasiel Puig, and Carl Crawford scored three batters later after Jerry Hairston reached on a fielding error.
Sandoval crushed a two-run homer in the home half to make it 5-2.
Ellis' sac fly in the sixth pulled the Dodgers within two, but Abreu doubled home Hunter Pence in the bottom of the frame to make it 6-3.
Kemp's RBI single in the eighth accounted for the final margin.
Since joining the Giants in 2007, Zito is 62-80 with a 4.63 earned run average ... The Giants were 2-for-7 with RISP ... Sandoval has 14 homers this season ... The Dodgers were 2-for-10 with RISP.
