LOS ANGELES (AP) - Wilmer Flores hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off closer Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2. 

Mike Yastrzemski homered early to help the Giants regain a two-game lead in the NL West over the defending World Series champions. 

San Francisco has won two of three in a four-game series between the longtime rivals. The Giants had just four hits before Flores’ drive, which quieted the sellout crowd at Dodger Stadium. 

Jansen fell to 21 for 25 in save opportunities. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was ejected in the ninth.
