Giants v. Dodgers, In Game Update: Giants Extend Lead to 8-0 After Big Sixth Inning

After the San Francisco Giants increased their lead in the fifth inning, they came right back in the sixth to extend their lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers by a score of 8-0. The Giants used 8 batters in their half of the sixth, and used the small ball approach to get to their massive lead.

Brandon Belt started it off with a great at bat, drawing a walk. Belt then stole second base and later scored on a Mark DeRosa RBI double. Matt Cain then drew a walk followed by another RBI single for Tejada who’s now 2-3 with 3 RBI for the day. The inning continued with a Freddy Sanchez RBI single, followed by an Aubrey Huff 2 RBI single to finish off the huge offensive inning for the Giants.

Matt Cain continues to cruise with only 4 hits through five innings, as well as 2 strikeouts. The Dodgers have been making contact but have very little to show for it.
