So, the Dodgers took two out of three in San Francisco, much to the surprise of practically everybody, especially the Giants, who fully expected the Dodgers to roll over and die at SBC as they've done so many times in the past. They didn't. Weaver scuffled his way to the win, giving up his usual three runs, including a homer to Bonds, but managing to keep things from getting out of hand. Meanwhile, the Dodgers scored two in the first on Jayson Werth's home run, and after that it was a run here, a run there, never more than a run an inning, but they piled a bunch of those one-run innings up until it was 7-4.
The Dodgers have four games at home with the Rockies, then finish the season with three more against the Jints, who have three with the Padres before they come to LA. If the Dodgers go 5-2, the Giants can't catch them, even if they sweep their remaining six.
