Final Score: Los Angeles 2, San Francisco 1
San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Hyun-Jin Ryu hurled seven scoreless innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants to avoid a three-game sweep at AT&T Park.
Ryu (3-1) scattered four hits and a walk while fanning three to earn his second straight win. The 27-year-old southpaw hasn't allowed a run since April 4 (14 innings).
Brian Wilson stranded two in the eighth and Kenley Jansen allowed one run in the ninth before retiring the final batter to secure his fifth save.
Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI and Tim Federowicz added an RBI single for the Dodgers, who will open a 10-game homestand with Arizona on Friday.
"Every game's important, especially when you've lost two one-run games in a row," Gonzalez said.
LA shortstop Hanley Ramirez missed the game with a right hand injury. He was hit in the hand by a pitch in Wednesday's loss. X-rays on his hand came back negative.
Madison Bumgarner (2-1) allowed two runs on six hits while striking out six over 4 1/3 innings to absorb his first loss since Aug. 28, 2013.
"I just felt like I made some pretty good pitches there and it just didn't go my way in some big situations," Bumgarner said. "It just didn't work out in my favor today."
Ehire Adrianza went 3-for-3 and with an RBI single to account for the Giants' only run.
The Dodgers broke through in the second inning. Scott Van Slyke walked, moved to second on a Juan Uribe infield single then scored on Federowicz's base hit to center.
Justin Turner opened the fifth with a double then scored on Gonzalez's single to right to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.
In the eighth, Adrianza doubled and Hunter Pence worked a one-out walk, but Wilson struck out Sandoval before getting Posey to fly out to center to end the threat.
In the ninth, Jansen struck out Michael Morse on a wild pitch that allowed Morse to reach. Brandon Belt then reached on a force out at second. After Hector Sanchez struck out, Gregor Blanco drew a two-out walk to put runners at first and second for Adrianza, who dropped a base hit into shallow left to bring Belt around.
Jansen, however, got Brandon Crawford to fly out to end the game.
Dodgers slugger Yasiel Puig batted third for the first time in his career ... The Dodgers were 2-for-8 with RISP ... Gonzalez has 15 RBI this season ... The Giants were 1-for-8 with RISP ... Pence finished 2-for-3 in the setback.
