Dodgers look to sweep the Giants
Rich Hill threw 81 pitches before he was pulled, beating out the Giants Johnny Cueto in a 1-0 pitchers duel. The win extends the Dodgers to a three game lead in the NL West.
“Everything felt solid. Mentally, I felt great, body feels good,” Hill said. “Something that I’ve emphasized throughout the entire season in Oakland and carried over here into L.A. is just stay within the moment, a pitch-to-pitch approach and really just making sure you execute each pitch.”
Hill came to the Dodgers in a last minute trade with the Oakland A’s but had been shelved due to a blister.
The Dodgers have the opportunity to sweep the Giants tonight before beginning a three game series with the Chicago Cubs who beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 yesterday.
