Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – Juan Uribe hit a key two-run homer for the second straight game and Jonathan Sanchez pitched seven strong innings, as the Giants took a 3-0 win over the Dodgers in the rubber match of a three-game series.
On Saturday, Uribe hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning as the Giants claimed a 5-4 comeback win. He repeated the feat in the seventh inning Sunday to help San Francisco get another victory and gain more ground on San Diego.
The Giants sit just one game behind the NL West-leading Padres, who lost their 10th consecutive contest Sunday.
Sanchez (10-8) got the win after limiting the Dodgers to three hits and a walk, and striking out nine.
