SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A.J. Ellis hit a three-run double in the ninth inning, All-Star Clayton Kershaw had a third straight stellar start and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the slumping San Francisco Giants 4-1 on Sunday.

Kershaw (8-5), a candidate to start the All-Star game for the National League, wasn't as sharp as he'd been in his previous two starts but still only allowed one run over eight innings. He helped the Dodgers move into second place in the West heading into a three-game series with division-leading Arizona.

Hanley Ramirez doubled and tripled to extend his career-high hitting streak to 18 games while rookie Yasiel Puig added two hits, including a single that started the rally in the ninth.

Guillermo Quiroz doubled and scored for San Francisco, which has dropped 11 of 13.
