SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Juan Uribe matched his career high with seven RBIs, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers rout the struggling San Francisco Giants 10-2 on Friday night.
Uribe chased Matt Cain with a bases-clearing triple in the third and also had a two-run homer in the seventh. He also had seven RBIs in a 2004 game when he played for the Chicago White Sox.
The Dodgers won for the 11th time in 13 games. Hanley Ramirez had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 16 games, and Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched into the seventh inning in his first win since May 28.
There was a bit of a downer to the big victory, with center fielder Matt Kemp departing due to an irritated left shoulder.
San Francisco also lost its center fielder when Andres Torres departed with a right calf strain.
The Giants have dropped four straight and 12 of 14. Hunter Pence and Tony Abreu each drove in a run for the World Series champions.
Cain (5-5) was charged with six runs and eight hits in 2 1-3 innings, matching his career low. The right-hander was 5-0 in his previous 11 starts against the Dodgers.
Ryu (7-3) allowed two runs and four hits over 6 2-3 innings. The left-hander was 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA in his previous five outings.
Ryu retired 11 straight between Pablo Sandoval’s double in the third and Brandon Belt’s double leading off the seventh. He also had an RBI single in the Dodgers’ six-run third inning.
Pence had a run-scoring fielder’s choice in the first, but Uribe hit a two-run double in the second before Los Angeles broke it open in the third. Ramirez singled in Yasiel Puig and A.J. Ellis drove in Adrian Gonzalez with a base hit in the big inning.
Uribe’s fifth homer gave him the most RBIs in a game for the Dodgers since James Loney drove in nine in 2006.
Abreu ended the Giants’ 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position with his seventh-inning single.
