SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- David Wells gave up two earned runs and just four hits in seven innings Saturday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat San Francisco 6-2.
He got all the support he needed on Luis Gonzalez’ three-run homer in the top of the first.
Wells (7-8), signed to provide depth for the Dodgers’ rotation, did not walk a batter and struck out four. He is 2-0 since Los Angeles signed him late last month following his release from San Diego.
San Francisco scored its runs in the sixth on Shea Hillenbrand’s throwing error and Nate Schierholtz’ RBI triple.
No player had more than one hit for the Giants, who had won their previous two games.
Loser Barry Zito (9-12) yielded three earned runs on four hits in six innings.
