San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) – Pat Burrell smacked a two-out, two-run homer off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth inning to help the Giants steal a 2-1 decision over the Dodgers in the second meeting of a three-game series.

Hong-Chih Kuo plunked Buster Posey with two outs in the eighth and was promptly pulled for Broxton (3-3), who battled back from a 3-0 count to Burrell before serving up a payoff fastball that was redirected over the left- field wall for the go-ahead score.

Guillermo Mota (1-3), who struck out Rafael Furcal and Matt Kemp to strand two runners in the eighth, finished off San Francisco’s fourth win in five games with a 1-2-3 ninth, sending Los Angeles to its fourth straight loss.
