Shohei Ohtani, Mookie Betts lead Dodgers’ rout of Giants

giants, dodgers

Shohei Ohtani came within a triple of a cycle, Mookie Betts collected a triple and a single, and the Los Angeles Dodgers made it two in a row over the host San Francisco Giants with a 10-2 romp Tuesday night.

Rookie Gavin Stone (4-1) extended his unbeaten streak to six games with six innings of one-run ball, helping the Dodgers win for the 10th time in their last 12 games.

Giants rookie Keaton Winn (3-6) matched zeroes with Stone through three innings before Ohtani launched his first pitch of the fourth 446 feet to right-center field for his 12th home run of the season.

The Dodgers didn’t stop there. Two walks set up an RBI double by Teoscar Hernandez and a sacrifice fly by Max Muncy, before Gavin Lux capped a four-run uprising with a run-scoring triple.

Ohtani had a hand in the Dodgers’ next two runs as well, following a Betts single in the fifth with one of his own before an RBI single by Will Smith. Ohtani then hit an RBI double in the seventh after Betts had opened the inning with a triple.

Ohtani took a crack at his second career cycle in the ninth, but grounded out to second to finish 3-for-5 with two RBIs.

The Dodgers completed their scoring without Ohtani’s help in the ninth on an RBI double by Miguel Rojas, a run-scoring single by Freddie Freeman and a two-run triple by Hernandez, his second and third RBIs of the night.

Stone went six innings, allowing one run and five hits. He walked three and struck out two.

The only run he gave up was the product of a Heliot Ramos double in the sixth that scored LaMonte Wade Jr., who had walked.

Smith had two hits and scored twice for the Dodgers, who improved to 5-0 on the season against the Giants. Hernandez also had two hits, while Betts and Freeman also scored twice.

Mike Yastrzemski, Luis Matos and Casey Schmitt had two hits each for the Giants, who have gone 2-3 to start a nine-game homestand. Matos drove in the team’s final run in the ninth with a single.

Winn worked the first four innings for San Francisco, charged with five runs on five hits. He walked three and struck out four.
