Dodgers offense goes quiet in loss

LA is shutout

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The pitching did its part on Saturday night. The offense, not so much.

Seven pitchers combined to throw nine innings of one-run ball, while striking out 11 and allowing only five hits. On the offensive side, they combined for only four hits and zero runs, as they dropped their second straight game to the Giants, 1-0.

The Giants jumped on the board early on, and scored the lone of the game in the top of the first. Kevin Pillar grounded out, bringing in Mike Yastrzemski, giving San Francisco a 1-0 lead. It was a rough first inning for starter Tony Gonsolin, who threw 39 pitches and faced seven batters. Luckily for him, that was the only damage against him.

He finished the game going four innings, striking out five and allowing only one run on two hits. He did walk four, which led to his high pitch count of 88.

Dustin May pitched a scoreless inning of relief, pitching for the first time since being hit in the head by a line drive last week in Arizona. Kenley Jansen also pitched a scoreless ninth.

On the offensive side, it was essentially non-existent. They were 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position and stranded seven runners on base.
