SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Will Smith hit a two-run double in the 10th inning to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night, marking their fourth straight win over their rivals this season.

Mookie Betts hit his 50th career leadoff homer and Kiké Hernández added a pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning to tie the game at 4 for Los Angeles.

The Dodgers then won it in the 10th when Smith hit a drive to center field off Taylor Rogers (1-2) to give Los Angeles the lead.

Blake Treinen (1-0) picked off pinch-runner Tyler Fitzgerald from first as part of a scoreless ninth to earn the win. J.P. Feyereisen retired the side for his first save as the Dodgers extended a franchise record by allowing four runs or fewer in twenty consecutive games.

Luis Matos, making his first start of the season in place of the injured Jung Hoo Lee, provided most of the offense for the Giants when he hit a first-pitch curveball into the left-field seats next to Yoshinobu Yamamoto for a three-run homer that made it 3-1 in the second.

Yamamoto then retired the next 12 batters before running into trouble in the sixth with back-to-back walks with one out. He retired the next batter before giving up an RBI single to Heliot Ramos, which gave the Giants a 4-3 lead and ended Yamamoto’s night.

San Francisco starter Jordan Hicks allowed Betts’ leadoff homer and then just one more run in five innings, but was given a no-decision when the bullpen couldn’t hold a 3-2 lead.

He was helped by his defense in the fifth inning, with right fielder Mike Yastrzemski robbing Betts of an extra-base hit with a diving catch that helped limit Los Angeles to one run in the inning on an RBI infield single by Shohei Ohtani, who back in the lineup after sitting out Sunday’s game against San Diego, a day after experiencing back tightness.
