Giants 5, Dodgers 0: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Well that was about the opposite of exciting or dramatic. The Giants jumped out to an early lead in the first on a Matt Duffy two-run homer and never looked back, resulting in relatively easy 5-0 win. The fact that the victory was a breeze was due to the fact that Mike Leake threw a…
