Ryu (3-1) struck out three and walked one on a season-high 112 pitches in seven innings, helping his club move into a tie with the Giants atop the NL West at 10-6. Kenley Jansen gave up a two-out RBI single to Adrianza before finishing for his fifth save.

Yasiel Puig returned to the Dodgers starting lineup and went 1 for 4 with a strikeout. He dropped a routine fly ball in right early on but recovered to throw out Brandon Belt at second. He then made a nice over-the-head catch on the next batter and a running grab in shallow center in the eighth with a runner on second.

Madison Bumgarner (2-1) allowed two runs, six hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 4 1-3 innings but threw 99 pitches.

Ian Kennedy (1-2) took a one-hit shutout into the seventh before Corey Dickerson reached on a one-out double, Troy Tulowitzki walked and Justin Morneau lined a ball to right field. Chris Denorfia broke in, then retreated as the ball went over him for an RBI double.

Rosario grounded out to shortstop as Tulowitzki scored for a 2-1 lead, and Nolan Arenado followed with a run-scoring single.

LaTroy Hawkins pitched the ninth to remain perfect in four save chances.
