CHAVEZ RAVINE (CBSLA.com) — Juan Uribe scored on a play at the plate in the 9th inning, and the Dodgers got even with the cross-town rival Angels on Tuesday night in Game 2 of the Freeway Series.

Clayton Kershaw gave up three earned runs through seven innings of work, and Dodger relievers limited Anaheim to one run as Juan Uribe and Matt Kemp supplied the offense in a 5-4 win.

Uribe connected off Anaheim starter Hector Santiago for a 3-run shot deep to left in the 2nd inning, which gave the Dodgers a 3-2 lead.

The Angels tied it in the 3rd inning with an Albert Pujols double to left to score Mike Trout.

After Matt Kemp reached third during a steal attempt at second, off a bad throw by Chris Iannetta, Scott Van Slyke, playing left field, brought him home for a 4-3 lead with a sacrifice fly to center.

The Angels, again behind Pujols, tied the ball game with a solo homer to left field, which reached the back of the Dodger bull pen.

Uribe again singled in the bottom of the 9th, with one out, and was moved to third on a single up the middle by A.J. Ellis — his first hit of the ball game.

Andre Ethier then entered the game as a pinch hitter, and grounded to the infield. Iannetta was unable to handle the throw attempt to home, and dropped the ball on the attempt to score Uribe, who scored to win the ball game.

“He’s been a real good teammate, and has handles (the crowded outfield situation) very well,” Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly said of Ethier after the game.

Brian Wilson had entered the game in the 8th inning, giving up the homer to Pujols, and striking out two.

Kenley Jansen (2-3) got the win, striking out the side in the top of the 9th, off 11 pitches.

The Angels went through four relief pitchers, with Kevin Jepsen (0-1) taking the loss.

The Dodgers will take on the Angels in Anaheim on Wednesday to continue the 4-game Freeway Series.
