Los Angeles Dodgers' Rich Hill begins new role vs. San Francisco Giants

Los Angeles Dodgers' Rich Hill begins new role vs. San Francisco Giants

It's the first time the Giants have failed to score more than one run in each of their first four games. So here goes: The Dodgers will score a run in 2018. Holland walked both Bellinger and Barnes.

According the ESPN Stats & Information research, the Giants scored six runs in their first four games of the 1920 and 1933 seasons, when the franchise was located in NY. With the 1-0 victory over the Dodgers, manager Bruce Bochy became the first visiting manager to win 100 games at Dodger Stadium.

McCutchen and Evan Longoria - two big offseason acquisitions for the Giants - continued to struggle.

Stratton is 1-1 with a 6.75 ERA in three career games (two starts) against Los Angeles.

Maeda pitched out of a jam in the second. Seager sprinted home as Yasiel Puig, who was on first, ran into a pickle.

Sunday's game also marked just the fourth time during the expansion era that all the games of a four-game series have been shutouts.

Crawford hit a one-out single up the middle off Shane Carle (0-1) and moved to third on a single by Cesar Hernandez, who had two hits and two walks. He struck out four. But he has managed a 3-1 record against the Giants thanks to some timely run support.

Dodgers: Open their first road trip of the season Monday at NL West rival Arizona with LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu making his first start this season. "(The Padres) finished a sweep here to win the division". They lost J.D. Martinez, who had 29 homers and 65 RBIs for them after coming over in a trade with Detroit, but this team still has plenty of weapons in Paul Goldschmidt, Jake Lamb, David Peralta, and A.J Pollock, plus they have added Alex Avila.

Correa and AL MVP Jose Altuve each had four hits and scored twice for the World Series champions. Blach also went 1-1 this spring with a 3.63 ERA in 17.1 innings.

Gibson, Pressly and Gabriel Moya combined on a three-hitter for the Twins.

After Crawford netted the first hit by either team on a soft gr0undball, the Dodgers oddly used their second of six allotted mound visits ahead of a two-out at-bat by Cueto. Why? Even after Posey stole third base without a throw, a Belt line drive was snagged with a nifty slide by none other than Puig to end the inning.
