It’s Dodgers over Giants in series opener

LOS ANGELES — Rookie sensation Yasiel Puig hit his seventh home run in 20 major league games and added a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning against Madison Bumgarner, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.

Nick Punto, who replaced third baseman Juan Uribe in a double switch, led off the eighth with an opposite-field double down the right-field line. Mark Ellis sacrificed Punto to third and reached safely when Bumgarner threw high to first for an error.

Puig greeted George Kontos with a line-drive single to left that scored Punto. Hanley Ramirez drove in the final run on a liner toward the middle that shortstop Brandon Crawford knocked down with a lunging attempt before getting the out at first.

Kontos was recalled from Triple-A Fresno before the game, while Jean Machi was sent back to the Giants’ Pacific Coast League club. Kontos was optioned to the minors on June 11, the day he received a three-game suspension for throwing at Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen. But since he is appealing the penalty, Kontos is eligible to play until his case is heard by Major League Baseball.

Paco Rodriguez (2-2) got two outs and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for his fifth save.

Bumgarner (7-5) was charged with three runs — two earned — and five hits in seven-plus innings with five strikeouts in his 100th big league start. The 23-year-old left-hander engaged in another tense duel with Hyun-Jin Ryu in a rematch of their April 2 meeting, when Bumgarner spoiled the Korean-born lefty’s major league debut with eight innings of two-hit ball and retired 18 consecutive batters during a 3-0 win at Dodger Stadium.

Ryu allowed a run, eight hits and four walks in 6 2/3 innings. He was lifted by manager Don Mattingly after Buster Posey reached second on a fly to right field that Puig was just about to catch when his backside made contact with the auxiliary scoreboard and the ball fell behind him. The play was originally ruled an error, then changed to a double by official scorer Don Hartack.

Ronald Belisario came on and struck out Hunter Pence.

The Giants began a 10-game road trip with a familiar face back in the lineup: Pablo Sandoval was reinstated from the disabled list Monday after missing 14 games because of a left foot strain. He was 2-fo- 4.

Puig drove a 1-1 pitch into the lower seats in the right-field corner with one out in the first. It ended Bumgarner’s 16-inning scoreless streak against the Dodgers, and was their only hit until Puig’s two-out single in the sixth.

The Giants tied it in the second inning with an RBI double inside third base by Andres Torres that scored Joaquin Arias from first base — but Arias strained his left hamstring on the play and came out of the game.

Crawford, who replaced Arias at shortstop, flied out with the bases loaded to end the third after Ryu got a visit from pitching coach Rick Honeycutt.

The Giants had the bases loaded again in the fifth, but only because Posey slipped and fell rounding third base on a one-out single by Sandoval before scampering back to the bag. Crawford followed with a comebacker to Ryu, who calmly threw to catcher A.J. Ellis to begin an inning-ending double play.
