Dee Gordon opened the game with a leadoff single to left field and stole second base off Yusmeiro Petit, who’s weakness has been holding runners. However, he was then stranded as Petit struck out the side.

With no outs in the second inning and Hanley Ramirez standing on first base, Juan Uribe shot a center into right field that triggered multiple errors. Ramirez challenged Hunter Pence’s arm by making his way towards third base, where he slid in safely as the throw was off target and got by Pablo Sandoval.

Petit backed up the play and threw home in an attempt to get Ramirez, but short-hopped it, which allowed Ramirez to score. Uribe advanced to third on the play and scored on Carl Crawford’s sacrifice fly to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead.

Clayton Kershaw allowed a two-out double in the bottom of the second, but the Giants were unable to capitalize on it and the Dodgers’ two-run lead remained intact. Gordon reached on a bunt single in the third and Yasiel Puig followed with a single of his own and the Dodgers threatened to add to their lead.
