San Fran­cisco 6, Dodgers 2

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: The game was tied, 2-2, un­til the fifth in­ning, when Justin Maxwell blasted a two-run home run off Dodgers starter Car­los Frias. The Giants in­creased their lead to 6-2 in the fol­low­ing in­ning on another two-run homer off Frias, this one by Bran­don Belt.

ON THE MOUND: Frias pitched 51⁄ in­nings for the sec­ond

3 con­sec­u­tive start. He lost again, as was also the case five days ear­lier against the Texas Rangers. This time, Frias was charged with six runs and five hits. He struck out two and walked one. Frias started the game by plunk­ing Nori Aoki and serv­ing up a dou­ble to Joe Panik. Aoki and Panik scored on sac­ri­fice flies to­move San Fran­cisco in front, 2-0. Aoki left the game in the bot­tom of the in­ning with what the Giants called a lower leg con­tu­sion. Right-han­der Matt West pitched two score­less in­nings in his Dodgers de­but.

AT THE PLATE: Joc Ped­er­son and Justin Turner hit back-to-back solo home runs in the bot­tom of the first in­ning to tie the score, 2-2. The Dodgers of­fense fell back into a slum­ber af­ter that, al­low­ing 39-year-old Giants starter Tim Hud­son to pitch into the sev­enth in­ning. Jimmy Rollins had two hits, in­clud­ing a lead­off dou­ble in the fourth in­ning. Hud­son lasted 61⁄ in­nings and was charged

3 with two runs and six hits. He walked two.

EX­TRA BASES: West was re­called from triple-A Ok­la­homa City be­fore the game. The pro­mo­tion to the ma­jor leagues was the sec­ond of the sea­son for West, who was ac­quired from the Toronto Blue Jays on May 4. In a cor­re­spond­ing ros­ter move, right-han­der Josh Ravin was sent down to triple A. Ravin posted a 6.43 earned-run av­er­age in seven ap­pear­ances for the Dodgers.… Joel Peralta, who has pitched in two games for Ok­la­homa City as part of a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion as­sign­ment, could be ac­ti­vated next week when the Dodgers are in Chicago, Man­ager Don Mat­tingly said. Peralta has been side­lined for nearly two months with a nerve-re­lated prob­lem.

UP NEXT: Brett An­der­son (2-4, 3.43 ERA) will face the Giants and Tim Lince­cum (7-3, 3.31) at Dodger Sta­dium on Sun­day at 5 p.m. TV: ESPN. Ra­dio: 570, 710, 1020.
