Dodgers reach season-highs in hits and runs, pound Giants in first game of doubleheader

first_imgAll of that made it easier for Walker Buehler to settle down after an erratic first inning.Buehler needed 34 pitches to navigate the first inning of his second big-league start. He walked one, threw a run-scoring wild pitch and did himself some more harm by missing the bag while covering first on what should have been an inning-ending ground ball.The Giants scored twice in that inning but Buehler stabilized after that to get through five innings. The Giants didn’t get another baserunner past first until Pedro Baez entered the game in the seventh inning. He gave up a three-run home run to Alen Hanson.After his first-inning struggles, Buehler threw first-pitch strikes to the next 12 Giants batters and retired 12 of the 15 batters he faced before coming out of the game after throwing 94 pitches (the most in a game as a professional) in five innings.Yasiel Puig made an outstanding catch to end that first inning and save Buehler from any more damage. But Puig suffered some damage of his own, crashing hard into the brick wall in foul territory. He stayed in long enough to bat in the top of the second but then came out.

(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)ExpandSAN FRANCISCO – The Dodgers chased Giants starter Chris Stratton from the game in the second inning, scored eight runs in the first three innings and a season-high for the game as they pounded the San Francisco Giants 15-6 in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday at AT&T Park.The Dodgers finished the game with a season-high 20 hits including nine for extra bases – a solo home run by Chris Taylor in the second inning, back-to-back RBI triples by Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson later that inning and six doubles (three by Chase Utley).The Giants activated Stratton from the paternity list in order to start Saturday’s afternoon game. The new father needed 45 pitches to get through the first inning, walking four batters. Ten of the 14 batters he faced before Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled him from the game reached base. Six of them scored.The Dodgers piled on from there. Utley and Pederson each had four-hit games (the first of Pederson’s career). Taylor and Bellinger had three-hit games. Pederson drove in four runs, Bellinger three. Taylor and Utley each scored four times (the first time the Dodgers had two players score four runs each in the same game since 1994).
