Jerry Hairston Jr.'s RBI single scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, Adrian Gonzalez went 4 for 4 and scored four runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Angels 8-7 Monday night in the Freeway Series opener.

The Angels' season-high eight-game winning streak ended after they blew a five-run lead in the first of two games at Dodger Stadium before the series shifts to Anaheim for two more.

Hairston was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day. He was 0 for 2 with a strikeout before he singled off Robert Coello (1-1) with two outs. After Matt Kemp struck out for the third time, Gonzalez singled and Scott Van Slyke struck out before pinch-hitter Andre Ethier walked to set up Hairston.
