DODGERS 4, GIANTS 0
In a complete reversal of the last (horrific) trip to San Francisco, the Dodgers complete a three-game SWEEP(!!!) of the Giants, to climb back into (a tie for) first place in the NL West.
Clayton Kershaw was masterful, pitching a complete game shutout. It was, as Vin noted several times during the telecast, the first time the Dodgers have shut out the Gnats in back-to-back games in SF since the teams moved west.
Today wasn't as much of the Hanley Show as the last two days, but it's clear he's rubbing off on the rest of the lineup. Everybody threw up the above gesture when they got on base!
Luis Cruz continued his attempt to de-Gordon the Dodgers with a double, 2 RBI, and some dazzling glove work. A.J. Ellis had the most A.J. Ellis game possible, walking four times.
Dodgers finish the road trip 7-3 (which is flippin' AMAZING after some of those games in St. Louis), and, perhaps more importantly, Sax evens the Sons' road record at 1-1.
Home tomorrow against the D-Backs. We've got first place back, boys. Let's keep it for good this time.
