San Francisco Giants defeat LA Dodgers 8-0. It's been a rough stretch for the Dodgers closing out the Interleague schedule on the road with a 1-5 record. San Francisco treated them no differently in this game.

Dodger starter Nathan Eovaldi was BABIPed to death: infield single by Ryan Theriot; pop-fly single by Melky Cabrera; double by Angel Pagan on a grounder that bounced off the first base bag; a double by Pablo Sandoval; a single by Hector Sanchez. That's four runs right there, and it was only the first inning.

The second inning was just as horrendous — three hits and a sacrifice fly yielding three hits.

Armed with that many runs, Barry Zito decided to do his best impression of his Cy Young self. He gave up three hits and three walks and also pelted Andre Ethier with his senior citizen speed curveball in the sixth inning during his seven innings of shutout ball. Along with George Contos and Shane Loux, the Giants pitchers handed the Dodgers their fourth shutout of the season all on the road.

The Giants win makes them two games behind the Dodgers making the possibility of the Dodgers coming home in a first place tie all that much more real. Remember the days when we were boasting about the Dodgers Major League-best record? I don't either.
