LOS ANGELES (AP) — Johnny Cueto outpitched Clayton Kershaw, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory Monday night that snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers’ four-game winning streak.
The Giants entered with a National League-low 16 home runs but hit two against Kershaw — a two-run shot by Hunter Pence in the first inning and a solo drive by Buster Posey in the third.
Pence began the night batting .100 in his career against Kershaw without a home run.
Cueto (4-1) held the Dodgers to three runs and six hits in seven innings. He walked one and struck out three.
Kershaw (4-2) went six innings, allowing four runs — three earned — and eight hits. He struck out five and did not walk a batter.
