“Our serve has been amazing all season and we’ve just been hitting a lot better than we’ve been lately, scoring a lot of runs, allowing them to settle in and dive deeper into the game,” Freeman said. “It’s been like clicking all cylinders for about four or five weeks now.”

It was the big three of Freeman, Betts and Turner that highlighted Saturday’s game.

“It was fun,” Urias said through an interpreter. “We have a very talented group.”

After the Giants closed in in the ninth round, scoring two runs against Reyes Moronta and David Price before a generous third put the game out, the Dodgers ended the day victoriously by clapping their hands again, a ritual they did many times in the beginning of the game. year, and seem ready to continue as they head towards the long run of the season.
