LOS ANGELES -- David Wells capped off his splintered season with a victory and singled home a run, James Loney continued his torrid month with another homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 8-3 on Friday night.
Wells (9-9) allowed three runs and seven hits over six innings with three strikeouts and a walk. The left-hander completed his 21st big-league season with a career-worst 5.43 ERA. But he was 4-1 in seven starts with the Dodgers, who signed him as a free agent two weeks after he was designated for assignment by the San Diego Padres.
Kevin Correia (4-7) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings.
Neither Wells nor Correia escaped the first two innings unscathed.
Never miss a local story.
The Dodgers got RBI doubles from Matt Kemp and Andy LaRoche in the first and an RBI single by Wells in the second to take a 3-2 lead. Wells advanced two bases on Juan Pierre's single and scored the Dodgers' fourth run on a sacrifice fly by Wilson Valdez.
Loney hit his 15th homer into the right-field bullpen to extend the Dodgers' margin to 5-2 in the third.
