LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hanley Ramirez hit a three-run homer in the 12th inning to lift the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.

Dee Gordon hit a two-out single against Blake Parker (1-1), stole his major league-leading 51st base and came home when Ramirez drove a 1-0 pitch into the Dodgers' bullpen in left field for his 12th homer after a full-count walk to Justin Turner.

Jamey Wright (4-2) allowed two hits over two innings to get the victory and help the Dodgers increase their NL West lead over San Francisco to 3 1-2 games.

Junior Lake pushed a bunt single past the right of the mound with one out in the Cubs' seventh and came all the way around on a double to right-center by Arismendy Alcantara, tying the score 2-all.
