LOS ANGELES (AP) - Justin Maxwell and Brandon Belt hit two-run homers and the San Francisco Giants trimmed the Dodgers' NL West lead to a half-game with a 6-2 victory over Los Angeles on Saturday.

Tim Hudson pitched six-hit ball into the seventh inning and got a key single for the Giants, who have won five straight over their archrivals and nine of 11 this season. Los Angeles (38-31) has been alone in first place since May 30, but San Francisco (38-32) could reclaim the top spot with a series sweep Sunday.

Joc Pederson and Justin Turner hit back-to-back homers in the first inning for the Dodgers, who have lost six of eight.
