Uribe homer beats Dodgers
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Jonathan Broxton in the ninth inning and Brian Wilson escaped a jam in the bottom half to preserve the San Francisco Giants’ wild 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night.
Uribe was hitless in three at-bats before sending a 1-0 pitch into the left-field pavilion with one out. Broxton (5-5) was back as the closer for the first time since Aug. 21 after losing his role following a shaky stretch. But he blew his sixth save in 28 chances.
Los Angeles put runners on first and third with one out in the bottom half but Wilson recovered in time to earn his 39th save. Rod Barajas flied out to right and pinch-hitter Reed Johnson bounced into a fielder’s choice to end the game.
