LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rookie sensation Yasiel Puig hit his seventh home run in 20 major league games and added a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning against Madison Bumgarner, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.
Nick Punto led off the eighth with a double. Mark Ellis sacrificed Punto to third and reached safely when Bumgarner threw high to first for an error.
Puig greeted George Kontos with a line-drive single to left that scored Punto. Hanley Ramirez drove in the final run on a liner toward the middle that shortstop Brandon Crawford knocked down with a lunging attempt before getting the out at first.
Paco Rodriguez (2-2) got two outs and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for his fifth save.
Bumgarner (7-5) was charged with three runs - two earned - and five hits in seven-plus innings in his 100th big league start.
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Kyle Blanks singled home the winning run in the 10th inning for his career-high fourth hit, and San Diego rallied from a three-run deficit in the ninth to beat Philadelphia.
Blanks also had a two-run single and scored the tying run on Carlos Ruiz's passed ball in the ninth as the Padres fought back against Cliff Lee and struggling closer Jonathan Papelbon.
Joe Thatcher (3-1) retired Domonic Brown with a runner on third in the 10th.
Chase Utley homered and Ruiz had an RBI single for the Phillies. Justin De Fratus (2-1) took the loss.
