Dodgers Vs. Giants Game Recap: Giants Complete The Sweep With 8-4 Win

The San Francisco Giants completed their three game sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday with an 8-4 win.

Matt Cain picked up the win for the Giants after he tossed seven innings, allowing just one run while striking out five. Cain improved his record to 13-5, including his first win against the Dodgers this season. San Francisco gave Cain plenty of run support, led by Joaquin Arias who went 3-4 with 5 RBI.

Chris Capuano took the loss for the Dodgers, allowing six earned runs over five innings. The Giants scored three runs off Capuano in the first inning then plated three more in the sixth inning. The six earned runs were the most Capuano has allowed since he allowed six on July 26 against the St. Louis Cardinals. Capuano has now lost four of his last five decisions.

In the midst of the loss, Andre Ethier made some Dodgers history. He doubled in the sixth inning and by doing so, he became the first Dodger with six straight 30-double seasons. The game also marked the return of Dodgers reliever Rubby De La Rosa. He has not pitched in the Major Leagues since July 31 of last season De La Rosa, who had Tommy John surgery last season, allowed two runs in 2/3 innings pitched.

With the loss, the Dodgers now trail the Giants by two and a half games in the NL West.
