SAN FRANCISCO—The Los Angeles Dodgers are back in first place in the National League West Division after sweeping the San Francisco Giants in San Francisco over the weekend.
Short stop Luis Cruz, who is filling in for the injured Dee Gordon, extended his hitting streak to 12 games after a 2-4, 2 RBI game.
The Dodgers biggest acquisition, Hanley Ramirez, was huge in the series. Friday night, Ramirez broke a 3-3- tie in the 10th inning with a solo home run that gave the Dodgers the lead and eventually the win.
The Giants were without all-star Pablo Sandoval for the entire series.
Since joining the Dodgers, Ramirez is 7-21 (.333) with 7 RBIs and 3 walks in only 5 games. The Dodgers are 3-2 with Ramirez.
