The Dodgers exploded for 4 runs in the 10th inning on Thursday afternoon at AT&T park and defeated the Giants 4-1. LA split their four games series with San Francisco, with each team winning two games each.
Julio Urias made his 2017 debut, allowing just 1 run in 5 2/3 innings for LA, despite receiving a no-decision. Urias allowed four hits, walked four and struck out four.
Kenley Jansen (1-0) got credit for the victory. He pitched the 9th inning, and struck out the side.
“I felt good, I felt confident,” Urias said. “I felt like what I did last year was able to help me build confidence for this year.”
Giants starter Matt Moore allowed one run and two hits in seven innings, walking three and striking out eight. Corey Gearrin (0-1) took the loss for San Francisco.
The Dodgers got off to a strong start on a solo homer from Corey Seager in the 1st inning. However, the Giants would tie things up in the 6th inning when Christian Arroyo delivered an RBI single that scored Brandon Belt, which tied the game at 1-1.
After losing to the Giants in 10 innings on Wednesday night, the Dodgers turned the tables less than 24 hours later in the 10th inning Thursday afternoon. Andrew Toles drove in pinch-runner Ross Stripling with the bases-loaded, which broke the tie. Kike Hernandez followed with a sacrifice fly, and after an intentional walk to Corey Seager, Justin Turner delivered an RBI single. Chris Taylor capped the rally with a based-loaded walk.
The Dodgers return home on Friday to begin a 3-game set with the Phillies. Kenta Maeda will be on the hill for LA (1-2; 8.05 ERA), while the Phillies will go with Jerad Eickhoff (0-1; 2.55 ERA).
