LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eduardo Nunez and Brandon Belt homered to help the San Francisco Giants overcome injuries to All-Star pitcher Johnny Cueto and shortstop Brandon Crawford in a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
San Francisco pulled into a three-way tie for first place in the NL wild-card standings with the Mets and Cardinals. The Giants are five games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers with 11 to play.
Cueto exited with a strained left groin in the sixth inning. Crawford came out with a dislocated left pinky in the second.
A team trainer checked on Cueto with Andrew Toles at bat. Cueto stayed in and walked Toles, then motioned that he was done.
