Giants get closer, beat Dodgers 5-2 in 13 innings
LOS ANGELES (AP) Pinch-hitter Andrew Susac singled home the go-ahead run in the 13th inning, and the San Francisco Giants beat the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2 Monday night to climb within 3 1/2 games of the NL West lead.
Susac singled to left field off Kevin Correia (2-4), scoring Brandon Belt. San Francisco tacked on two more runs to take a 5-2 lead on Gregor Blanco's double.
Blanco homered and scored twice for the Giants, who snapped a three-game skid and remained tied with Pittsburgh for the two NL wild-card slots. San Francisco can clinch a playoff berth Tuesday night with a win and a Milwaukee loss.
Santiago Casilla (3-3) got the victory with two innings of relief, and Hunter Strickland pitched the 13th to earn his first career save.
