Giants, Dodgers split pair of games decided by one run

Madison Bumgarner once again got the better of Clayton Kershaw, crushing a solo shot into the left field bleachers on Saturday afternoon. But the Dodgers ended up getting the better of the Giants, stealing a 3-2 win thanks to a Charlie Culberson RBI double in the 10th inning.

“He’s a pretty solid hitter,” Kershaw said of Bumgarner who’s now taken him deep twice since the start of 2015. “But you don’t want to give up a hit to a pitcher — let alone a home run.”

On Friday night, it was the Giants who stole the win despite collecting just two hits, both of which left the yard. Trevor Brown broke up Ross Stripling’s no-hit bid in the eighth and Brandon Crawford walked the Giants off with a win in the tenth.Brandon Crawfordcharlie culbersonClayton Kershawkarl buscheckLos Angeles DodgersMadison BumgarnerMLBross striplingSan Francisco Giantstrevor brown
