SAN FRANCISCO — Juan Uribe matched his career high with seven RBIs, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers rout the struggling San Francisco Giants 10-2 on Friday night.

Uribe chased Matt Cain with a bases-clearing triple in the third and also had a two-run homer in the seventh. He also had seven RBIs in a 2004 game when he played for the Montreal Expos.

The Dodgers won for the 11th time in 13 games. Hanley Ramirez had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, and Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched into the seventh inning in his first win since May 28.

There was a bit of a downer to the big victory, with center fielder Matt Kemp departing due to an irritated left shoulder.

San Francisco also lost its center fielder when Andres Torres departed with a right calf strain.
