Dodgers 10, San Fran­cisco 2

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Zach Helfand

KEY MO­MENT: The Dodgers scored early and of­ten against Giants starter Tim Lince­cum. When Justin Turner lined an RBI sin­gle to raise the lead to 5- 0 with one out in the sec­ond in­ning, Giants Man­ager Bruce Bochy pulled Lince­cum and left the re­main­ing 20 outs to the bullpen.

ON THE MOUND: Brett An­der­son, who has de­vel­oped into a steady force in the ro­ta­tion, hasn’t given up more than four runs in any out­ing this sea­son, so the early run sup­port was more than enough. An­der­son took a line drive to his right an­kle in the first in­ning, but stayed in the game to col­lect the win. He lim­ited the Giants to one run and five hits over six in­nings de­spite strik­ing out only one bat­ter. “Other than the kick- save off my an­kle, it was good,” An­der­son said of his per­for­mance. Daniel Coulombe al­lowed one run in two in­nings of re­lief, and Matt West threw a score­less ninth in­ning.

AT THE PLATE: The first run was a gift — a wild pitch in the first in­ning that scored Turner. The rest were all well- earned. In the sec­ond in­ning, Yasiel Puig drove in two runs, Joc Ped­er­son dou­bled home another and Turner fol­lowed with his RBI sin­gle that knocked out Lince­cum. Yas­mani Gran­dal added solo home runs in the third and fourth in­ning for his fourth ca­reer multi- home- run game, Adrian Gon­za­lez had a solo shot of his own, also in the fourth in­ning, and Turner hit a two- run home run in the fifth. Jimmy Rollins, who had three hits in four at- bats, had his best per­for­mance at the plate since May 15, when he went four for five. It was his sec­ond straight multi- hit game. “Hope­fully this is the start of some­thing good,” Dodgers Man­ager Don Mat­tingly said.

EX­TRA BASES: A trio of Dodgers pitch­ers made re­hab ap­pear­ances with triple- A Ok­la­homa City on Sun­day. Bran­don Beachy threw 45 pitches and al­lowed one hit with three strike­outs over two in­nings. Bran­don League al­lowed an un­earned run in one in­ning of work, and Pe­dro Baez threw one score­less in­ning. … Joel Peralta, who has been on the dis­abled list for nearly two months with a nerve- re­lated prob­lem, threw at Dodger Sta­dium on Sun­day. He said he could be ac­ti­vated as soon as Mon­day.

UP NEXT: Dodgers left- han­der Clay­ton Ker­shaw ( 5- 4, 3.29 ERA) will face the Chicago Cubs and left- han­der Tsuyoshi Wada ( 1- 1, 3.68) at Wrigley Field on Mon­day at 5 PDT. TV: Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
