LOS ANGELES, July 21 (UPI) -- Andres Torres stroked a two-run double in the ninth Tuesday to cap a three-run San Francisco rally and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-5.

The heated clash between the National League West rivals included three hit batters and the ejection of Dodgers Manager Joe Torre and starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw.

Jonathan Broxton (3-2) took the mound in the top of the ninth with Los Angeles holding a 5-4 lead. Broxton loaded the bases with one out and found himself out of the game after acting Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly stepped off the mound during a conference with Broxton and then stepped back on.

George Sherrill was hustled into the game and surrendered the game-winning double to Torres. Travis Schlichting took over and gave up an RBI single to Buster Posey.

Santiago Casilla (3-2) recorded the win in relief of Giants' starter Tim Lincecum. Jeremy Affeldt was credited with the save.

The Dodgers got a two-run homer from Andre Ethier in the first inning and took the early 3-0 lead.
