Giants Beat Dodgers in Lopsided Affair, 11-6

Donovan Solano and Evan Longoria homered, Logan Webb pitched five sharp innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11-6 Saturday night.

The Giants have won consecutive games at Dodger Stadium, scoring a combined 19 runs, after losing the first four in the season series.

Mike Yastrzemski hit two doubles and Wilmer Flores had three of the Giants’ 16 hits after being reinstated from the injured list before the game.

Webb (4-3) held the Dodgers to just one hit and one earned run. He struck out seven, walked none and retired the final 11 batters he faced.

Webb made the start after a short stint on the injured list with a shoulder strain, so his outing was over after just 62 pitches.

Albert Pujols hit his 669th career home run and doubled, and is tied with Babe Ruth for the fourth most extra-base hits in major league history with 1,356.

Pujols drove in three runs, a day after he was robbed of a game-winning home run in the ninth by a stellar catch from Giants left fielder Mike Tauchman.

Cody Bellinger made his return to the Dodgers lineup after nearly two months on the injured list with a hairline fracture in his leg. He received a nice ovation from the limited capacity crowd. He went 0 for 4 with a walk and scored a run.

Max Muncy also homered for Los Angeles.

Julio Urias (7-2) had his worst start of the season and allowed seven runs — six earned — on 11 hits in five innings.

After making back-to-back errors at second base in the second inning, Solano quickly made up for those miscues. He hit a two-run homer in the third to give the Giants a 5-2 lead.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Giants: INF Flores (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

Dodgers: OF Bellinger (hairline fracture left leg) and INF/OF Zach McKinstry (right oblique strain) were reinstated from the IL and both started … RHP Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) will make one more rehab start and if he reaches about five innings and/or 75 pitches, he could be rejoin the Dodgers after that.
