LOS ANGELES -- Hanley Ramirez hit a three-run homer in the 12th inning to lift the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night. Dee Gordon hit a two-out single against Blake Parker (1-1), stole his major league-leading 51st base and came home when Ramirez drove a 1-0 pitch into the Dodgers bullpen in left field for his 12th homer after a full-count walk to Justin Turner. Jamey Wright (4-2) allowed two hits over two innings to get the victory and help the Dodgers increase their NL West lead over San Francisco to 3 1-2 games. Junior Lake pushed a bunt single past the right of the mound with one out in the Cubs seventh and came all the way around on a double to right-centre by Arismendy Alcantara, tying the score 2-all. It was the third hit of the game for the switch-hitting rookie. Teammate Starlin Castro also had three hits, including an RBI single in the first. Matt Kemp gave the NL West-leading Dodgers a 2-1 lead in the fourth against left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada with a drive into the pavilion seats in left-centre after a leadoff walk to Ramirez. It was the 12th homer this season and fourth in five games for the two-time All-Star, who has four homers and 12 RBIs in 11 games since manager Don Mattingly shifted him from left field to right and Yasiel Puig from right to centre. Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs and nine hits through seven innings and struck out six. The left-hander, working on five days rest, was lifted for a pinch-hitter after 108 pitches. That pinch-hitter was Yasiel Puig, who didnt start because of a sore left hamstring. He singled leading off the seventh, but was picked off by right-hander Brian Schlitter. The original ruling by umpire David Rackley was safe, but a replay challenge by Cubs manager Rick Renteria got the decision overturned. Wada allowed two runs and six hits over 5 2-3 innings and struck out six in his fourth major league start. The Dodgers are 12-5 in games started by opponents rookies, including Fridays 8-2 loss to Kyle Hendricks. TRAINERS ROOM Cubs: Right-hander Kyuji Fujikawa, who has yet to pitch for Chicago this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, is scheduled to throw an inning for Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

The Broncos are holding out hope that right tackle Orlando Franklin, who sprained his left knee and ankle Sunday, wont be sidelined for an extended time like All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady, who landed on IR last month with a foot injury. Coach John Fox provided no updates on Franklin, who went for an MRI exam Monday, or defensive lineman Sylvester Williams (neck). At the very least, it looks like Franklin will miss the Colts game, however. He limped through the locker room Monday with a walking boot on his left foot when he came out of the meeting room and was holding crutches, but not using them. He needed a cane to hobble out of the stadium Sunday night after Denvers 35-19 won over Jacksonville. Franklin got hurt early in the third quarter when he was caught in the pile on Knowshon Morenos first of three touchdown runs. Its been a difficult year for the men who protect Manning. The Broncos (6-0) lost centres J.D. Walton and Dan Koppen to injuries last summer, leaving the job to Manny Ramirez, who had never started at centre before this season and whos still working out the kinks. His two bad exchanges with Manning on Sunday were both recovered by the Jaguars (0-6). After Franklin got hurt with 12:16 left in the third quarter, Chris Kuper came in at right guard and Louis Vasquez moved to right tackle for the first time in his career. Franklins absence affected the play calling of offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase and Manning, although Denver had two touchdown drives capped by Moreno runs behind the makeshift offensive line. "I thought Adam did a good job calling plays with Vasquez," Manning said. "Im not sure hees ever played right tackle before.dddddddddddd. It kind of changes the way I think about audibles and things like that when youve got a new right tackle." Despite the revolving door of offensive linemen, Manning has been sacked only five times, the fewest in the league for any QB whos started all his teams games. For however long it lasts, Franklins absence could have a big impact on the Broncos, whose 265 points are the most by a team through six games in league history. They could stick with Kuper-Vasquez again on the right side or they could move Vasquez back to right guard, where hes started all 60 of his career games, and insert eighth-year pro Winston Justice, who was inactive Sunday, at right tackle. Justice, who started 13 games for the Colts last season and signed as a free agent with Denver after Clady got hurt in Week 2, has quickly gotten up to speed and could step in Sunday if needed, Fox said. "Hes had plenty of time to learn our verbiage and our offence," said Fox. Franklin has started all 44 games, including playoffs, since the Broncos made him a second-round pick in 2011 out of Miami. Notes: Walton, who had a setback in his comeback from ankle surgery and underwent another operation in June, is eligible to return to practice this week. ... The Broncos wont have to make a roster move until Saturday to get Von Miller back on the 53-man roster. The team has a roster exemption until then for its star linebacker whose six-game suspension ended Monday. ... With Denver and Kansas City tied atop the AFC West, this marks the first time in 79 years that two teams from the same division started 6-0. The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears, then members of the NFLs Western Division, started out 10-0 in 1934. Neither of those teams went on to win the championship. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
