LOS ANGELES -- Mark Ellis singled in the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Ellis lofted the ball over the head of leaping shortstop Derek Jeter to score Andre Ethier, who singled and stole second.

The Dodgers improved to 27-6 since June 21, their best stretch since going 29-5 during a 34-game run from Aug. 7-Sept. 9, 1953.

Kenley Jansen (4-3) struck out two in a perfect ninth for the win.

Shawn Kelley (3-1) took the loss in relief in the Yankees' third-ever series at Dodger Stadium and first since June 2010.
