Three Run Homer in Ninth Dumps Dodgers 4-1

LOS ANGELES, California-- Less than 24 hours after the Dodgers celebrated their come-from-behind win Saturday night, the Giants turned the tables on them with a ninth-inning rally of their own that resulted in a 4-1 victory. San Francisco took three of four from Los Angeles, who left nine on base, six in scoring position. Jeff Weaver recorded his ninth quality start in his last 10 appearances but is just 2-3 with a 2.36 ERA during that stretch.

With the game tied 1-1 and two out, Michael Tucker hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning off Yhency Brazoban. Brazoban (2-4) came on to start the ninth, retiring Mike Matheny on a spectacular diving catch by Jason Repko, and Pedro Feliz before rookie Jason Ellison bounced a ground-rule double into the right-field corner. The Dodgers' closer then hit pinch-hitter Alex Sanchez with a pitch before Tucker drove a 2-2 pitch into the right field pavilion for his fifth homer and second of the series.

Ray Durham homered off Weaver, who gave up five hits and a single run in his seven innings of work. The shot came in the fourth inning. Durham was 8-for-15 in the series with six RBI

The Dodgers squandered a leadoff double by Ricky Ledee in the second and another in the fourth off the bat of Jeff Kent.

They finally tied the game 1-1 in the fifth when Jayson Werth, suffering with a 1-for-25 slump. drew a walk and stole second. With two out, Oscar Robles slugged a double over the center fielder's head for the only Dodger run.

The Dodgers threatened again in the seventh when Robles drew a two-out walk and scored on a double in the left-center gap by Cesar Izturis. Giants' shortstop Omar Vizquel then fielded Jeff Kent's tap to the left of the mound with his bare hand and threw out Kent by an eyelash to end the inning.

Hee Seop Choi banged another double in the eighth but Scott Eyre, the eventual winner, has not allowed an earned run in 20.1 career innings against the Dodgers, spanning 27 appearances.

The Dodgers hit the road to play three games in Philadelphia and New York before returning home.
