SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27 (UPI) -- Angel Pagan hit a home run leading off the eighth inning Thursday that lifted San Francisco to a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers reached a season-best 28 games over the .500 mark on Sept. 3 and since then have gone 8-13 as they head for the playoffs.

Los Angeles took a early 2-0 lead, but San Francisco tied it in the fifth with the runs scoring on a ground out by Pagan and a double by Brandon Belt.

Pagan opened the eighth against Paco Rodriguez (3-4) and swung and missed at the first two pitches. He then launched his fifth home run of the season to left.

That made a winner out of Santiago Cassila (7-2), who worked the eighth inning in relief of Tim Lincecum. Sergio Romo retired the Dodgers in order in the ninth for his 38th save.
