Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

29 Comments

The Dodgers are back on top in the NL West.

Clayton Kershaw allowed just two hits and a walk over nine shutout innings and Adrian Gonzalez finished 3-for-5 with two doubles as Los Angeles dominated the host Giants on Saturday night in San Francisco. Kershaw now has a 0.69 ERA in 78 2/3 career innings at AT&T Park and his 2014 season ERA is down to an MLB-best 1.76 through 112 1/3 innings this year. Gonzalez had a rough first half but is now 13-for-31 (.420) with five extra-base hits and eight RBI in eight games since the All-Star break.

The Dodgers will look to put some distance between themselves and the Giants in Sunday night’s series finale.

It’ll be Hyun-Jin Ryu versus new Giants starter Jake Peavy.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
