Three straight hits for the Dodgers, by Justin Turner, Corey Seager , and Yasiel Puig led to an early Dodgers lead.
Puig vs Bum 1: With two on and two out, Puig sent a bouncer deep into the left-field corner to score Turner and Seager.
Carlos Ruiz blooped one into short CF to cash in Puig – who was off and running – he was committed to running home, no matter what.
They roared right back with a rally to score before there was even one out. 2-1
By the end of the inning, eight men had come to the plate and the Giants had tied the score. 2-22nd inning 2-2
The Dodgers lost a possible run in the first inning when Justin Turner was thrown out at third, and thus, did not score when Yasiel Puig hit the double behind him.
They lost another possible run in the second when Kiké Enrique Hernandez over-ran second base and was tagged out when he came off the bag. Time will tell if those runs eventually prove necessary.Puig vs Bum 2: A little dribbler that Puig beat out for an infield single on pure hustle.
The teams pushed and shoved, but remained tied through four.
5th inning 2-2
Bumgarner went 1,2,3, to make it seven Dodgers retired in a row.
Rich Hill kept the Giants scoreless.
6th inning 2-2
Puig vs Bumgarner 3: fly out.
Ruiz and Rob Segedin with back to back singles. Kiké added a third single, which drove in Ruiz from second. Dodgers led 3-2
Rich Hill out. Brandon McCarthy in. He gave up a walk and two singles to load the bases with nobody out.
McCarthy then grooved a 2-0 fastball that quickly became a 2-run double into the RF corner. Lead gone. 3-4 with no out.
But that wasn’t enough. He gave up another double for another two runs. 3-6
Josh Ravin in. One pitch. A blast! 3 more runs. 3-9That was the end for the Dodgers, who flailed about and never scored again.Dodgers lose 9-3
Reaching for a silver lining: Rich Hill gave up two early runs, and he let the lead off man get on in every inning, except the fifth. That said, he pitched well enough to win, and the Giants never again scored off him after the first inning. All of that said, it took him 82 pitches to get through five.
Ouch: The Dodgers handed Brandon McCarthy the lead, and he handed the Giants a walk, 3 singles, 2 doubles, and 6 runs. All without recording an out.
Puig vs Bum: Yasiel went 2 for 3 with an RBI double and a single.
Rich Hill went 5 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, 1 walk, 4 Ks ERA 2.12
Team with RISP: 2 for 3
