San Francisco pounced on their NL West rivals, delivering a stunning 15–0 victory at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers’ loss was their largest defeat during a shutout at home in 125 years, dating back to an 1898 matchup against the Pirates, per ESPN Stats and Info.
The Giants poured in their most runs against the Dodgers in 10 years in the win, despite being held off the scoreboard until the fifth inning. They scored at least three runs in four of the last five innings of the game, powered by a pinch-hit grand slam from J.D. Davis.
