SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hyun-Jin Ryu stretched his road scoreless streak to 26 innings, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1 Thursday to avoid a sweep.
Ryu (3-1) struck out three and walked one on a season-high 112 pitches in seven innings, helping his club move into a tie with the Giants atop the NL West at 10-6. Kenley Jansen gave up a two-out RBI single to Adrianza before finishing for his fifth save.
Yasiel Puig returned to the Dodgers starting lineup and went 1 for 4 with a strikeout. He dropped a routine fly ball in right early on but recovered to throw out Brandon Belt at second. He then made a nice over-the-head catch on the next batter and a running grab in shallow center in the eighth with a runner on second.
Madison Bumgarner (2-1) allowed two runs, six hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 4 1-3 innings but threw 99 pitches.
PHILLIES 1, BRAVES 0
