Oct. 3, 2012 at 1:59 AM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Marco Scutaro delivered a key two-run double Tuesday and the San Francisco Giants snuffed out the Los Angeles Dodgers' playoff hopes with a 4-3 victory.

Clinging to a 2-1 lead in the fifth inning, the Giants put two runners abroad with two outs against Jamey Wright and Scutaro scorched a pitch down the right-field line, chasing home both runners to double the advantage.

Buster Posey launched a solo homer and Joaquin Arias added an RBI for the National League West champs, who evened their season-ending three-game series.

Barry Zito (15-8) earned the win, yielding a pair of runs on six hits over six frames.

Sergio Romo tossed a scoreless ninth for his 14th save.

Chris Capuano (12-12), absorbed the loss for Los Angeles, which fell short in its pursuit of the St. Louis Cardinals for the second and final NL wild card berth.

A.J. Ellis slammed a two-run homer for Los Angeles.
