Dodgers Go Down Quietly, Fall To Sanchez, Giants 3-0

Hiroki Kuroda was good again tonight, but Jonathan Sanchez was better, and the Giants walked away with a series-winning 3-0 victory on Sunday night baseball.

Kuroda allowed three runs in eight innings while striking out eight. It was a 1-0 game in the seventh when Juan Uribe struck again, launching a two-run shot over the wall in left field, dismissing his bat in a manner a little too similar to Dante Bichette for my tastes. Dodger starting pitchers allowed five earned runs in 23 innings in this series, a 1.96 ERA, but they lost two of three games.

Sanchez was wonderful, striking out nine in his seven scoreless innings. He allowed five baserunners on the evening: three hits, a walk, and a hit batsman.

John Lindsey and his four Isotopian brethren arrive in San Diego tomorrow for the start of a 10-game road trip. Vicente Padilla faces Mat Latos in the series opener with the Padres tomorrow night.

WP - Jonathan Sanchez (10-8):  7 IP, 3 hits, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts

LP - Hiroki Kuroda (10-12):  8 IP, 6 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts

Sv - Brian Wilson (40):  1 IP, 2 strikeouts
