SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Madison Bumgarner hit another home run off Dodgers star Clayton Kershaw, but both aces were done by the time Charlie Culberson hit a go-ahead double in the 10th inning to lift Los Angeles over the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Saturday in a second straight extra-inning game in the rain.

Chris Hatcher (1-0) retired pinch-hitter Joe Panik on a called third strike to send the game into extras, then Kenley Jansen finished for his second save. The Dodgers were on the other side of a 3-2 result in 10 innings a night earlier.

Bumgarner struck out eight and Kershaw had five Ks in his eight innings for another impressive duel between the ace left-handers.

Bumgarner hit a solo homer off Kershaw in the second inning, his second in two seasons against his National League West rival.

George Kontos (0-1) gave up a one-out double to Corey Seager before Culberson's extra-base hit.
