This has been a forgettable week for the Dodgers (3-6), who broke a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over San Francisco at AT&T Park last Sunday.

Kyle Farmer’s two-out, pinch hit double to right in the 10th inning scored Cody Bellinger, who doubled.

Matt Kemp (two hits) had a run-scoring single in the fourth that brought in Yasiel Puig (two hits).

“Kyle’s got that pulse about him,’’ said Clayton Kershaw, who didn’t get the win after working seven innings, allowing six hits with six strikeouts and a run. “We want him up in that situation.’’

Kenley Jansen earned his first save, surrendering one hit with three strikeouts over one inning.

Andrew McCutchen (two runs) collected a career-best six hits, including a three-run, game-winning homer in the 14th and added a run-tallying double as the Giants took a 7-5 decision on Saturday.

Patrick Corbin (2-0) twirled a one-hitter with a career-high 12 strikeouts and one walk over seven and one-third innings in a 3-0 win by Arizona on Wednesday at Chase Field.

The Diamondbacks knocked off the Dodgers 6-1 on Tuesday as Zack Godley bested Kershaw.

Godley (1-0) fanned three and walked one with four hits and one run allowed across seven frames.

Kershaw (0-2) delivered six innings and gave up four hits with two runs while striking out six and walking one.

Chris Taylor had the only run batted in for the Blue Crew on a sacrifice fly in the third that brought home Austin Barnes, who doubled.

On Monday, the Boys of Summer lost 8-7 in 15 innings to Arizona after leading 6-3 heading into the ninth.

Yasmani Grandal (three hits with two runs) had a two-run homer, Corey Seager (three hits with a run and an RBI), Bellinger (four hits with a run and an RBI) and Joc Pederson (two hits with a run and an RBI) led the Dodgers.
