SAN FRANCISCO - Hector Sanchez singled home the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning and the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 Tuesday night after Brandon Belt's tying double in the ninth.

Hunter Pence had four hits for the Giants, who have won three of four.

Brandon Crawford singled off Brandon League (0-1) with one out in the 12th and advanced to second on a groundout by Brandon Hicks. His bouncer deflected off third baseman Juan Uribe to shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who threw to first for the out.

But the Dodgers were unable to get the lead runner on the play, and it cost them.

Crawford went to third on a wild pitch and Sanchez hit a sharp one-hopper that glanced off the glove of diving second baseman Justin Turner and into centre field.

Turner slammed his hand on the ground in frustration.

Yusmeiro Petit (1-1) worked a scoreless inning for the win in a game that took 4 hours, 54 minutes and ended after midnight on the West Coast.

Angel Pagan singled with one out in the ninth and Belt followed with a double into the left-field corner against closer Kenley Jansen. Pagan scored to tie it at 2.

Crawford also drove in a run for the Giants.

Turner's pinch-hit single in the seventh inning gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.

Uribe had three hits, including a home run and a double, and scored twice for the Dodgers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped. Yasiel Puig added two hits, including a triple.

Juan Gutierrez pitched 2 1-3 shutout innings with three strikeouts to keep the Giants close.

Josh Beckett allowed two hits over five scoreless innings in his second start of the season for the Dodgers. He walked five and struck out four.

Giants starter Tim Lincecum gave up one run and five hits in five innings. He did not walk a batter and struck out five.

Los Angeles had the bases loaded with one out in the fourth, but Lincecum struck out Uribe and Tim Federowicz to end the threat.

The Giants also had the bases loaded in the fourth with one out. Beckett struck out Michael Morse swinging before retiring Crawford on a routine grounder.

Beckett walked the bases loaded with two outs in the fifth but got Buster Posey on a fly to centre field.

NOTES: Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez singled in the fourth to extend his hitting streak to 10 games. ... Giants LHP Jeremy Affeldt (right knee sprain) will be activated from the disabled list Wednesday. ... Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (lower back strain) continues to rehab and go through baseball activities. San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said a target date for Scutaro's return has not been set. "He has good days and days he has to back off a little bit," Bochy said. ... RHP Ryan Vogelsong (0-0, 8.00 ERA) pitches for the Giants on Wednesday. He is 4-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 20 games against the Dodgers. LHP Paul Maholm (0-1, 8.10) takes the mound for Los Angeles. He is winless in six career games at AT&T Park. ... Dodgers RHP Chad Billingsley cut short a bullpen session after eight pitches due to discomfort. He was sent to Los Angeles for an MRI. ... Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw (back) threw a bullpen session and manager Don Mattingly said the team is "plodding along with this. We'll see how far he can go. It seems to be going in the right direction." ... Lincecum struck out the side (in the third) for the first time this year.
