Ellis’ double in 9th lifts Dodgers over Giants

SAN FRANCISCO - A.J. Ellis didn’t have to do much guessing when he came up to face Giants closer Sergio Romo with the bases loaded in the ninth. Having been a part of this rivalry his entire big league career, Ellis knew exactly what to expect.

He was right.

Ellis hit a three-run double off Romo to back a third straight stellar start by All-Star Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat slumping San Francisco, 4-1, on Sunday.

“It’s a great thing about the Dodgers and Giants, there’s no secrets,” Ellis said. “With Sergio right there, you know what his bread and butter is. You know he’s trying to throw a slider. Fortunately for me and for the team I found a ball that I could hit.”
