NL's final wild card spot with two games left in the regular season.
Andre Ethier added a two-run homer for the Dodgers, who have won a season-high
tying six straight games.

Santiago Casilla (7-6) surrendered the deciding run to take the loss for the
NL West-champion Giants, who have dropped two of their last three.
