    , Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco Giants acquired veteran
    catcher Erik Kratz from the Brewers on Sunday, sending minor league infielder
    C.J. Hinojosa to Milwaukee.Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi
    had wanted an experienced catcher to provide depth behind Buster Posey, who is
    back from right hip surgery that ended his 2018 season in late August.The
    38-year-old Kratz batted .236 with six home runs and 23 RBIs in 67 games for the
    Brewers last season, hitting .292 in nine playoff games. He joins his eighth
    team over 10 major league seasons.The Giants reassigned catcher Stephen Vogt to
    minor league camp. He is working his way back from surgery on his troublesome
    right shoulder last May and didn’t play for Milwaukee last year.Vogt reached a
    minor league deal before spring training along with Rene Rivera, just released
    by the Giants. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp has had a lot of big hits for the
    Dodgers in his career. Traded back to them this season, he’s regaining his
    rhythm offensively in the heat of a pennant race.Kemp slugged a go-ahead,
    two-strike, three-run homer in the eighth inning, lifting Los Angeles to a 3-2
    victory over Arizona and a tie atop the NL West with the Diamondbacks on
    Saturday night.“Coming into September, we know what every game means,” he said.
    “I don’t think they’re going to quit, so we got to be just as good.”With the
    sellout crowd of
    52 ,394
    on its feet chanting “Let’s go Dodgers,” Kemp took two quick strikes from Archie
    Bradley before launching his 19th homer into center field for a 3-2 lead.“That
    was really fun to watch,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Arizona manager
    Torey Lovullo said, “These kinds of games is what makes baseball great.”Kemp is
    hitting .310 with five runs, two homers and six RBIs in 13 games since Aug.
    15.Justin Turner got the rally going with one out in the inning. He singled for
    the Dodgers’ first hit since his double in the third. Manny Machado followed
    with a 10-pitch walk by Bradley to set up Kemp.“Biggest hit of the year so far,”
    starter Clayton Kershaw said of Kemp’s homer. “J.T. fights off a tough pitch to
    shoot it through the hole and Manny fights off that at-bat. It was an awesome
    comeback win for us.”Bradley (4-5) was leading the National League in holds with
    31 before Kemp’s homer.“I threw a really bad curveball to a really good hitter,”
    Bradley said. “It was supposed to be down and away but I left it over the
    plate.”Kenta Maeda (8-8) worked a perfect eighth. Kenley Jansen put the tying
    run on in the ninth. The All-Star closer gave up a two-out double to Nick Ahmed
    before Ketel Marte popped up to second, giving Jansen his 34th save in 38
    opportunities. Enrique Hernandez got the first out of the ninth on a stellar
    play. He made a diving stop on David Peralta’s grounder and threw from his back
    to first baseman Cody Bellinger just in time.“You can plug him anywhere and he’s
    going to make big plays,” Lovullo said.Neither team has won by more than two
    runs in the first three homer-heavy games of the series. Turner’s homer leading
    off the eighth gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory on Friday. The D’Backs won the
    opener 3-1 on Peralta’s three-run shot.“This is a tough loss, but we didn’t lose
    a playoff game,” Bradley said. “One game does not define this team.”Arizona led
    2-0 after Eduardo Escobar and pinch-hitter Christian Walker led off innings by
    homering on first pitches from Kershaw. Escobar went deep to left field in the
    second. Walker, hitting for starter Patrick
    Corbin Craig
    Gentry Jersey
    , landed one in left-center for his second career pinch-hit
    homer off Kershaw.In between Arizona’s two homers, Kershaw retired 12
    consecutive batters. The left-hander gave up two runs and four hits in seven
    innings, struck out three and walked none.The Dodgers struck out 13 times,
    including six in a row over the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. Corbin retired
    the side in the fifth, striking out the last two batters. Yoshihisa Hirano
    relieved him and struck out the side in the sixth, while Brad Ziegler struck out
    pinch-hitter Bellinger to open the seventh.Corbin allowed three hits, struck out
    seven and walked one. The Dodgers have struck out 31 times in Corbin’s four
    starts against them this season and he’s limited hitters to a .125
    average.Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt singled in the sixth to reach base in his
    club-record 44th straight road game.TRAINER’S ROOMD-backs: 3B Jake Lamb (left
    shoulder contusion) recently had surgery to repair fraying in the rotator cuff
    and is done for the season. He’s expected to be ready by spring
    training.Dodgers: Reinstated LHP Zac Rosscup (left calf strain) and INF Chase
    Utley (left wrist inflammation) from the 10-day disabled list.DODGERS
