A week into the Major League Baseball season, it’s already clear that the new replay rules need some work.
Matt Kemp hit his first two home runs at Dodger Stadium since late in 2012 and Hanley Ramirez slugged his first two homers this season, helping Los Angeles beat the San Francisco Giants 6-2 Sunday night to avoid a three-game sweep.
A.J. Pollock broke out of an 0-for-13 start to the season with three hits, scoring twice and driving in a run, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Tuesday night.
Jorge De La Rosa tuned up for his opening-day start with six shutout innings for the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, but Hector Sanchez hit a game-ending two-run homer to give the San Francisco Giants an 8-6 win.
The right-hander, who will be the Giants’ No. 2 starter behind left-hander Madison Bumgarner during the regular season, threw 59 pitches and struck out seven.
Matt Cain pitched three shutout innings in his first start of the spring and Pablo Sandoval hit a pair of RBI singles as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 Wednesday.
Hyun-Jin Ryu and two relievers combined on a five-hitter that sent the Los Angeles Dodgers past the San Francisco Giants 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Josh Satin hit a two-run single to cap a four-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the New York Mets past the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Wednesday night.
Matt Cain has been very good since a rather forgettable outing against the New York Mets. His chance to exact some revenge is now at hand.
Adrian Gonzalez singled home the winning run in the 10th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night.
