Giants finish off rare sweep of Dodgers in Los Angeles with 7-3 win

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The San Francisco Giants completed a rare rivalry series sweep on the road with a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

It was the sixth time San Francisco swept Los Angeles in a three-game series at Dodger Stadium since both teams moved to California in 1958 and the first such instance since Aug. 20-22, 2012.

LaMonte Wade Jr. and Luis Matos each had two RBIs, Logan Webb (6-6) allowed two runs in seven innings, and the Giants won their seventh straight game.

Tony Gonsolin (4-2) gave up a career-high seven runs in 5 2/3 innings for the Dodgers, who have lost four of five.

The San Francisco lineup couldn’t get a read on Gonsolin through three innings, but they figured things out with a second look. Wade Jr. started the fourth inning by drawing a walk and Joc Pederson was hit by a pitch. Wade would score from third on a long foul out by Michael Conforto to make it 1-0, and the Giants went up 2-0 on Mike Yastrzemski’s single that drove in Pederson.

The Dodgers responded on James Outman’s sharp RBI single in the bottom half of the inning, cutting the margin to 2-1, but that was all they could generate when Blake Sabol tagged out J.D. Martinez at home off Thairo Estrada’s throw.

The Giants went back up 3-1 in the fifth when Wade got his 26th RBI if the season.

Los Angeles made it 3-2 in the bottom of the fifth. Freddie Freeman legged out a double with one out, and he scored on David Peralta’s single up the middle.

Matos pushed the lead out to 5-2 with a two-run double down the left field line in the sixth, and added the sixth run of the afternoon on Sabol’s double.

Wade then capped off the weekend by collecting his seventh RBI in the past two games.

Coming off a humiliating 15-0 loss Saturday night, the Dodgers had a chance to take an early lead in the first, but Outman struck out with the bases loaded.

Los Angeles made things interesting in the bottom of the ninth by loading the bases with one out. Camilo Doval hit Will Smith to make it 7-3 before striking out Peralta and getting Martinez to fly out to right.


Giants: RHP Alex Cobb (left oblique strain) was put on the injured list Sunday. He was placed on the 15-day IL retroactive to Thursday.

Dodgers: LHP Julio Urías (hamstring) is trending toward returning at the end of June during a three-game series at Kansas City, manager Dave Roberts said. Urías, who made his last start on May 18, is set to face live hitters on Tuesday.


Giants: Cobb had been scheduled to start Monday to open a three-game series at the San Diego Padres, leaving the rotation to be determined.

Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (8-4) will get the nod on Tuesday to start a two-game series against the Angels in Orange County. Kershaw has two wins in his past three starts, allowing four earned runs in 20 innings this month.
