Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: The Giants blew open the game with a four-run sev­enth in­ning that ex­panded their lead to 9-3. Left-han­der Daniel Coulombe walked Joe Panik with one out, then gave up a sin­gle to An­gel Pa­gan. Coulombe was re­placed by Josh Ravin, who gave up an in­field sin­gle to Buster Posey that loaded the bases. Ravin struck out Bran­don Belt but walked Bran­don Craw­ford to push in the Giants’ first run of the in­ning. Craw­ford’s walk was fol­lowed by con­sec­u­tive sin­gles from Matt Duffy and Gre­gor Blanco that drove in a com­bined three runs.

ON THE MOUND: Five days af­ter pitch­ing only 42⁄ in­nings against the San Diego

3 Padres, Mike Bolsinger was charged with five runs and eight hits over 51⁄ in­nings.

3 By the time he was re­placed by Coulombe in the sixth in­ning, he had al­ready thrown 97 pitches. The most costly of them was a hang­ing curve­ball he threw in the third in­ning that was crushed over the left-field wall by Posey for a grand slam.

AT THE PLATE: The team’s No. 3 hitter for the day, Justin Turner, home­red, dou­bled twice and was hit by a pitch. Turner’s first dou­ble, in the third in­ning, drove in Joc Ped­er­son. Turner scored later in the in­ning on a sin­gle by Adrian Gon­za­lez. Turner hit a solo home run in the eighth in­ning off Ge­orge Kon­tos.

EX­TRA BASES: Mi­nor league short­stop Eris­bel Ar­rue­bar­rena’s sus­pen­sion was re­duced to 30 games as part of a set­tle­ment with the Dodgers. Last month, the team sus­pended Ar­rue­bar­rena for the re­main­der of the sea­son for “re­peated fail­ures to com­ply with his con­tract.” Ar­rue­bar­rena filed a com­plaint with the comis­sioner’s of­fice, which led to an agree­ment with the Dodgers. Ar­rue­bar­rena, who signed a $25-mil­lion con­tract with the Dodgers last sea­son, was re­moved from the team’s 40-man ros­ter over the win­ter. Af­ter spring train­ing, the 25-year-old from Cuba was in­structed to re­main in the team’s Ari­zona camp. … Lance Bass and Lisa Van­der­pump were among the celebri­ties who vis­ited Dodger Sta­dium to take part in LBGT Night fes­tiv­i­ties.

UP NEXT: Car­los Frias (4-4, 4.14 ERA) will face the Giants’ Tim Hud­son (4-6, 4.65) at Dodger Sta­dium on Satur­day at 4:15 p.m. TV: Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
