LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez singled home the winning run in the 10th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.
The Dodgers reduced their magic number to five for clinching their first NL West title since 2009. They won for the seventh time in eight games against the rival Giants, a stretch that began with a three-game home sweep June 24-26.
The loss ended last-place San Francisco’s streak of four consecutive winning seasons.
Carl Crawford opened the 10th with a single off Jeremy Affeldt (1-5). Pinch-hitter Nick Punto sacrificed Crawford to second before Gonzalez stroked a single into center field for the Dodgers’ eighth walk-off win of the season.
