LOS ANGELES (AP) - Giants left fielder Mike Tauchman reached over the wall to rob Albert Pujols of a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning and San Francisco broke through in the 10th to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-5 in a thriller. 

Dodgers pinch-hitter Austin Barnes hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth to make it 5-all. Pujols was up next and hit a long drive that Tauchman caught. 

Three times the Giants had a lead and three times the Dodger tied it. 

In the end, the Giants wound up with their first win over their NL West rivals in five tries this season.
