July 6, 2013 at 11:04 PM

SAN FRANCISCO, July 6 (UPI) -- Madison Bumgarner kept the Dodgers at bay for seven innings and pushed two runs across home Saturday, helping San Francisco top the Dodgers 4-2.

Bumgarner (9-5) won for the fifth time in six starts, limiting the Dodgers to three hits and no walks. The left-hander struck out nine while giving up two earned runs in the 113-pitch performance.

At the plate, Bumgarner drew a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, triggering a three-run Giants outburst enabled by second baseman Nick Punto's error, and added a sacrifice fly in the fourth for a 4-0 lead.

Gregor Blanco and Marco Scutaro also each drove in a run as the Giants snapped a four-game losing streak.

The Dodgers' Stephen Fife (3-3) was the loser, surrendering four runs (only one earned) on seven hits over 4 1/3 frames.

Tim Federowicz belted a two-run homer for Los Angeles.
