Middle men get it done for LA Dodgers in NL West showdown

first_imgBumgarner has had the Dodgers’ number over the years — and that number has often been a string of zeroes — but not Tuesday night and not this season. The Dodgers have scored 13 runs on Bumgarner with 23 hits in 16 innings over his three starts against them this year (all Dodgers’ victories).They got to him for single runs in each of the first three innings and two in the fifth when Gonzalez stroked a two-run single to break a tie for good.Maeda did the better job of avoiding the land mines. He gave up six hits and walked four (matching his season high) but stranded six of those baserunners and got a big break when catcher Yasmani Grandal threw Eduardo Nunez out at third base on an attempted double steal in the fourth inning.The Giants scratched out a run off reliever Jesse Chavez in the sixth to briefly make it a one-run game. But Dodgers manager Dave Roberts rolled out the left-handers on his bench when Bumgarner left the game. That produced two runs when Chase Utley singled, Toles doubled him home and then scored on Kike’ Hernandez’s single.Toles added a two-run home run in the eighth inning off lefty specialist Javier Lopez.That was more than enough cushion for Adam Liberatore, Joe Blanton and Kenley Jansen who closed it out, retiring 10 of the final 11 Giants hitters. In 34 games since the All-Star break, they have scored 194 runs — an average of 5.71 per game after averaging 4.2 per game before the break.A lot of those runs have come on home runs. They have hit 53 since the All-Star break, including 19 over their past eight games. Rookies Rob Segedin and Andrew Toles hit their first major-league home runs in back-to-back at-bats as part of the Dodgers’ seven-homer barrage in Cincinnati on Monday.They hit their second major-league home runs Tuesday, although not consecutively this time.For Segedin, Tuesday’s homer came while he was awaiting word on the impending birth of his first child. His wife, Robin, went to the hospital earlier in the day and labor was induced with a son (to be named Robinson) expected Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.Robin Segedin wasn’t the only one laboring Tuesday night. Bumgarner and Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda each went just five innings, combining to throw 199 pitches to get there, neither pitcher up to the big moment in the opener of the series. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img LOS ANGELES >> On a day when they placed two more starting pitchers on the disabled list, the Dodgers went out and demonstrated why it hasn’t mattered.The Dodgers’ third, fourth and fifth hitters — Corey Seager, Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez — went 7 for 7 and drove in four runs in the first five innings against ace left-hander Madison Bumgarner as the Dodgers hit their way to a 9-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.The win in the first of nine head-to-head meetings between the two rivals over the final 38 games of the regular season doubled the Dodgers’ lead in the National League West to two games over the Giants. It is only the second day in the past 17 that ended with the two teams separated by more than one game.It is the Dodgers’ largest lead in the division since they were up 2 1/2 games on the Arizona Diamondbacks on April 24.last_img read more
