Bumgarner (11-12) won his fourth straight start while giving up one run and striking out eight over five innings. The Giants moved 8 1/2 games back of National League West-leading Arizona with 16 games left.

Jeff Keppinger, Aubrey Huff and Mark DeRosa each drove in two runs for the Giants, who scored in the second inning to break an 18-inning scoreless streak.

Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda (11-16) struggled in his second straight start, giving up three runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Hong-Chih Kuo, Josh Lindblom and Scott Elbert followed Kuroda and gave up a combined five runs in 1 1/3 innings.
