LOS ANGELES -- Something had to give with two pitchers combining for 20 strikeouts and no walks. In the end, the Giants scratched out a couple of runs that held up and allowed them to regain the NL West lead by a half-game.

Madison Bumgarner scattered four hits over eight scoreless innings, Pablo Sandoval drove in both runs and San Francisco beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Monday night.

Bumgarner dueled Clayton Kershaw through eight innings and emerged with his second scoreless outing of the season for the Giants, who have won six of their past nine games and 11 of 17. They erased the Dodgers' half-game lead in a division race that has seen the rivals frequently swap leads.

Bumgarner (14-7) struck out 10 -- giving him an NL-best 61 strikeouts since the All-Star break -- and walked none to even his road record at 6-6. via ESPN.com
