Giants 3, Dodgers 2: .500 against the Giants again

No matter how terrible the Giants are or where the Dodgers play them, they are always a tough and annoying matchup for whatever reason. The same applied today as the Dodgers struggled in a 3-2 loss that dropped the to .500 on the year against their rivals.

——

Kenta Maeda pitched well enough, surrendering only two runs in five innings on just three hits and two walks, notching four strikeouts in the process.

Julio Urias took over and walked two, but threw what would’ve been a scoreless inning, except a Chris Taylor throwing error led to a run that eventually proved to be the difference.

Caleb Ferguson got the 7th and 8th, as he seems back on track with two shutout innings, including three strikeouts and allowing just a walk. Yimi Garcia got a 1-2-3 frame of his own to finish that side of things.

Unfortunately, there wasn’t much more to talk about. Max Muncy hit his 17th ding dong of the year…

…and CT3 drove in a run with a grounder, but that was all they could do.

The Dodgers offense struggled, notching just five hits and five walks, not even putting enough men into threatening positions to whine about RISP this time.

So it goes.

Good lord, man.

The Dodgers fall to 48-25 with the loss.
