MLB: LA Dodgers 3, San Francisco 2

Sept. 8, 2012 at 9:10 PM   |   Comments

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Hanley Ramirez delivered a run-scoring double in the ninth inning Saturday, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a crucial 3-2 win over San Francisco.

With the score tied 2-2 in the ninth, Adrian Gonzalez belted a leadoff triple against Jeremy Affeldt (1-2) and Ramirez followed by lining pitch into right-center field for the decisive blow.

The Dodgers had tied it up in the eighth when Giants starter Matt Cain's wild pitch allowed pinch-runner Alex Castellanos to come home from third.

The victory allowed second-place Los Angeles to move back within 4 1/2 games of the National League West-leading Giants following their 5-2 loss to San Francisco Friday.

Ronald Belisario (5-1) earned the victory in relief of starter Chris Capuano, who limited the Giants to two runs on five hits over seven innings.

Cain yielded two runs on six hits over 7 1/3 frames for San Francisco.

Buster Posey and Brandon Belt drove in runs for the Giants.
