After the Dodgers scored a run in the 6th to cut the deficit in half, Matt Kemp – who went 2 for 4 in the game – brought Yasiel Puig home for the tying run with a single through the hole at short tying the score at 2-apiece.

In the 7th, catcher Drew Butera hit a 2-out double and was then driven in by Dee Gordon putting the Dodgers ahead for good, 3-2. Gordon came home later in the inning when Yasiel Puig hit a ground-rule double down the left-field line and into the seats making it 4-2.

In the 8th, Matt Kemp hit a solo homerun to right off reliever Juan Gutierrez. Kemp’s 5th of the year made it 5-2. Later in the frame, Carl Crawford scored on a Drew Butera sac fly making the score 6-2.

He got into trouble early loading the bases in the second. After Brandon Crawford scored on a sacrifice fly by Hunter Pence, former league MVP Buster Posey singled to right-center scoring Brandon Hicks making the score 2-0, Giants.

Giants starter Matt Cain got a no-decision going 5 innings giving up 2 runs on 3 hits.
