Grandal took a 3-2 pitch for from reliever Tyler Thornburg (3-2) that missed high and outside.
Adrian Gonzalez started the rally with a one-out single to center before moving to second on Trayce Thompson’s single to right. Howie Kendrick later walked to load the bases.
Kenley Jansen (3-2) pitched a scoreless ninth, and the Dodgers won for the sixth time in seven games.
Maeda (6-5) gave up one run on six hits in 6 1/3 innings, with eight strikeouts and three walks.
