LOS ANGELES (AP) - Elian Herrera singled in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night that kept their postseason hopes alive.
The Dodgers' sixth consecutive victory tied a season high and kept them two games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild card. Their win prevented the Cardinals from clinching a playoff berth after St. Louis beat Cincinnati 4-2. The Dodgers and Cardinals each have two games remaining.
Hanley Ramirez led off the ninth with a single off Santiago Casilla (7-6), advanced on a sacrifice by Shane Victorino and was held up at third on Luis Cruz's single. A.J. Ellis was intentionally walked and Herrera lined an 0-1 pitch off the glove of second baseman Marco Scutaro for the winning run.
Brandon League (2-6) got the win.
