LOS ANGELES (AP) – Marcus Thames tripled in the go-ahead run during a four-run seventh inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants 7-5 Sunday night, taking three of four from the defending World Series champions.

The Dodgers scored all four runs off reliever Dan Runzler (0-1).

Pinch-hitter Aaron Miles followed Thames’ clutch hit with a single to right, scoring pinch-runner Tony Gwynn Jr. Rafael Furcal doubled deep to right center, scoring Miles and making it 6-3.

They added another run on Andre Ethier’s single.

Hiroki Kuroda (1-0) allowed three runs and six hits — including homers to Pablo Sandoval and Pat Burrell — in seven innings.

He struck out five, walked none and retired 14 consecutive batters during one stretch.

Jonathan Broxton pitched the ninth to earn his third save in as many games, although he gave up a leadoff homer to pinch-hitter Aaron Rowand.
