LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was looking all too familiar to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Another lead lost Youth Myles Jack Jersey , another reliever buckling in a big moment.Only this time, after San Francisco Giants outfielder Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning to tie the game, the Dodgers did not wilt and their bullpen did not collapse.Instead, the relievers came through with four scoreless innings that enabled Brian Dozier’s sacrifice fly to finally drive in the winning run in the 12th for a 4-3 victory that snapped a five-game losing streak Wednesday night.“A big relief to say the least,” Dozier said. “A needed win.”The loss ended a three-game winning streak for the Giants, who were looking to sweep the three-game series against their longtime rivals.“It was a hard-fought series,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s a tough loss, no question. But you have to look at how we came back, and a lot of good things. We just couldn’t quite finish it.”The Dodgers received six scoreless innings from left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu during his first start in more than three months and took their first lead with a run in the sixth after Yasiel Puig led off with a double. Puig, ejected Tuesday after a scuffle with Giants catcher Nick Hundley, went to third on a flyout and scored on pinch-hitter Joc Pederson’s sacrifice fly.The Dodgers added two more in the seventh against reliever Ray Black. Justin Turner walked and scored on Manny Machado’s double. Matt Kemp singled in Machado to give Los Angeles a 3-0 lead.McCutchen’s 14th home run came against rookie reliever Caleb Ferguson, and the Dodgers would have to be forgiven if they thought a repeat of the past five games was in the works, with the bullpen taking the loss in each one.“If that game gets away from us , it’s really tough,” Turner said. “It’s a little bit of a monkey off our shoulders.”Pedro Baez (4-3) threw the final two scoreless innings to earn the win.SPLENDID RETURNRyu had not pitched since severely injuring his groin on May 2, but he was dominant. The left-hander held the Giants to three hits and struck out six. He did not walk a batter.“You win with starting pitching,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Overall our starting pitching has been lights-out. To get him back is a big boost for our team. … The guy is a big-game pitcher.”SEARCHING FOR OFFENSEThe Dodgers scored only three runs in the first two games of the series and left 17 runners on base Wednesday. As much as their bullpen has struggled lately, so has the lineup.Still, they remain confident.“This team is built to win and we’re going to put a hot streak together at some point,” Kemp said.“We’re still playing good baseball,” Dozier said. “Last time I checked, most winning streaks started after a loss.”TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: SS Brandon Crawford returned to the lineup after sitting out one game in concussion protocol. … 1B Brandon Belt (hyperextended knee) returned to the lineup. He was activated Tuesday, entered in the eighth when Hundley was ejected and scored the decisive run on a close play at the plate. … RHP Jeff Samardzija (right shoulder inflammation) threw a 30-pitch simulated game Tuesday and is scheduled to throw to hitters Friday before beginning a rehab assignment.Dodgers: Placed RHP Ross Stripling on the 10-day disabled list with two compressed disks in his lower back, retroactive to Friday. Stripling said he’s had the problem since college. … LHP Tony Cingrani (left shoulder strain) was transferred to the 60-day DL. … RHP Daniel Hudson (right forearm strain) is scheduled to come off the disabled list Friday. … All-Star closer Kenley Jansen (irregular heartbeat) threw a second bullpen. He is scheduled to see his cardiologist on Monday. … LHP Julio Urias (left shoulder surgery) was scheduled to throw two-plus innings in a rehab start, but lasted only 1 1/3 innings.UP NEXTGiants: RHP Dereck Rodriguez (6-1, 2.25 ERA) starts Friday when San Francisco opens a three-game series in Cincinnati. The Giants are 9-3 in his past 12 starts.Dodgers: RHP Walker Buehler (5-4 Youth Yannick Ngakoue Jersey , 3.32) is scheduled to pitch Friday in the opener of a three-game series at Seattle. Buehler has a 2.80 ERA as a starter, limiting opponents to a .211 batting average. The New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners both have their eyes on the Oakland Athletics.For the Yankees, it’s one of those “objects are closer than they appear” in the rear-view mirror. For the Mariners, a blip ahead on the horizon seemingly getting smaller by the day.That’s the state of the American League’s wild-card race as the Yankees enter a three-game series starting Friday night in Seattle.Article continues below ...The Yankees are 87-53 with a 3 1/2-game lead over the surging A’s (84-57) for the first of two wild-card berths. The Mariners at 78-62 are 5 1/2 games behind Oakland with 22 games remaining in the regular season.The Yankees and Mariners both got a close view of the A’s in the past week. The Mariners split a four-game series in Oakland last weekend and the Yankees just lost two of three there to open a 10-game trip.If the Yankees face Oakland in a wild-card game, they certainly hope it’s in New York. The Yankees have lost 18 of their past 25 games in Oakland, including six of the past seven.“I want to get rolling, no question about it,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said after Wednesday’s 8-2 loss, in which ace Luis Severino allowed six runs (five earned) in 2 2/3 innings. “I think we’re doing some things well, but we’re not certainly rolling like we’re capable of. We’re starting to get some guys back, which is really important, but we’ve got to play better if we want to get to where we want to go.”Shortstop Didi Gregorius is expected to return to the Yankees’ lineup Friday after missing 2 1/2 weeks with a contusion on his left heel.Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (10-5, 3.83 ERA) is scheduled to start the series opener against Mariners left-hander James Paxton (11-5 , 3.74). Tanaka is 6-0 with a 2.34 ERA in seven career starts against Seattle; Paxton will be making his second career start against the Yankees after suffering a 4-3 loss June 21 in New York in which he allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits in 5 2/3 innings.The Mariners, who in mid-June led the Athletics by 11 1/2 games, had a skirmish in the clubhouse — reportedly involving shortstop Jean Segura and second baseman/center fielder Dee Gordon — before Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to Baltimore.“Things happen in a clubhouse,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “You’re talking about 25 — or now in this case, now 35 — of the most competitive guys you’re ever gonna be around, and you spend basically every waking moment together all the time.“Certainly with how our season has played out, we just haven’t been consistent. And the frustration mounts from a number of different places.”The Mariners rebounded Wednesday to defeat the Orioles 5-2, taking two of three games in the series.“Sometimes it’ll bring teams together,” Servais said after the scuffle. “Sometimes certain things hit a boiling point and you gotta get something off your chest and you go from there.”
