San Francisco Giants' Buster Posey swings for an RBI double off Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw in the sixth inning Friday in San Francisco.

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Buster Posey hit a game-ending home run into the left-field seats leading off the bottom of the ninth, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Friday night.

Sergio Romo (2-2) struck out two in the top of the inning and survived Matt Kemp's nine-pitch single for the victory.

Posey connected for his first career game-winning RBI of any kind on a 3-2 pitch from Ronald Belisario (2-3), who hadn't allowed a run in his previous four appearances over six innings.

Clayton Kershaw came off the bereavement list to pitch seven impressive innings for the Dodgersonly five days after the death of his father, Christopher, and 56 hours following the funeral in Texas. Kershaw allowed one run and three hits, struck out five and walked three in a 104-pitch outing.
