BERLIN (AP) - Henrikh Mkhitaryan inspired Borussia Dortmund to a 3-1 win at Schalke in the Bundesliga on Saturday, while Bayern Munich survived a scare to beat Hertha Berlin 3-2.

Mkhitaryan was involved in all three goals after the 143rd Ruhr derby was delayed due to flares set off in the Dortmund fans' stand.

The Armenian midfielder sent through Marco Reus who crossed for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score in the 14th. Mkhitaryan set up Nuri Sahin's fine strike in the 51st, and led the counterattack for Jakub Blaszczykowski to seal the result in the 74th, 12 minutes after Schalke substitute Max Meyer pulled one back.

Bayern had to come from behind to win, as did Bayer Leverkusen to beat Augsburg 2-1.

Mainz defeated Eintracht Braunschweig 2-0 and nine-man Hannover lost 4-1 to Hoffenheim.
