Link: Juan Uribe doubles in the tying run in the second inning against the San Francisco Giants.

After giving up six runs in the first inning of Friday’s game, the Los Angeles Dodgers again found themselves in an early hole against the San Francisco Giants, trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the second. Madison Bumgarner, who entered the game with a lifetime record of 5-2 and 1.86 ERA at Dodger Stadium was on the mound with Scott Van Slyke on first and Juan Uribe at the plate.

Uribe began the day hitting .385 with four doubles and two RBIs. On a 2-2 pitch, Uribe flared one into left-center, which got past Giants center fielder Angel Pagan, scoring Van Slyke. The Dodger third baseman had a rough two seasons with the Dodgers before turning it around last season. Uribe and the Dodgers agreed to terms in the off-season on a two-year, $15 million contract.
