Bobby Abreu started the rally in the sixth with a one-out single and Juan Uribe walked. Ellis then knocked home Abreu with a double to right and Uribe came home on a pinch-hit single by Tony Gwynn Jr. coupled with an error by Giants third baseman Conor Gillaspie to make it 3-1.

Kemp ripped a double down the line in right in the seventh and scored from on a throwing error by relief pitcher Steve Edlefsen to push the Dodgers lead to 4-1.

Ellis opened the Los Angeles eighth with a single, Gwynn reached on a fielding error by Buster Posey and Dee Gordon reached on an infield single to load the bases with no outs. Mark Ellis drew a walk to score A.J. Ellis and Kennedy brought home Gwynn with a pinch-hit single to right.
