LOS ANGELES (AP) — Corey Seager, Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez combined for eight hits and four RBIs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers roughed up Madison Bumgarner again to beat the San Francisco Giants 9-5 on Tuesday night.

Rob Segedin and Andrew Toles each homered, and the Dodgers extended their NL West lead to two games.

Bumgarner (12-8) is 0-2 with a 5.63 ERA in three starts against the Dodgers this season. Gonzalez hit a two-run single to center with the bases loaded against Bumgarner in the fifth to break a tie.

Kenley Jansen allowed a homer to Denard Span but still got his 36th save.

The Giants’ Angel Pagan extended his hitting streak to 19 games.

Kenta Maeda (13-7) allowed three runs in five innings.
