At the start of Friday night’s game Juan Uribe had 65 RBI in his three years with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Uribe would knock in seven sparking a 10-2 pounding of the last place San Francisco Giants.
Giants’ starter Matt Cain would only last two and a third innings as the Dodgers’ offense beat him up pretty good with six hits and eight runs. Cain, who hasn’t been himself this year, walked four and saw his ERA inflate to 4.85 on the season.
Down 1-0, the career night for Uribe started after a double with the bases loaded in the second inning scored a pair. At the time of that double, it was only the 19th extra-base hit for a Dodgers third baseman all season.
The third inning would be the second highest total scored in an inning as they scored six. Interestingly enough the highest runs in one inning for the Dodgers this season came in San Francisco on May 4th as they scored seven.
With one run in on a Hanley Ramirez single, the Dodgers loaded the bases for AJ Ellis. Coming into the night the Dodgers were 11-for-68 (.162) with the bases loaded. Ellis singled to knock in a run for the second bases loaded hit of the night for the team.
Uribe would follow with a bases clearing triple to knock Cain out of the game and give the Dodgers a commanding 7-1 lead with still only one out in the third. The big hit gave the Dodgers an unprecedented three straight hits with the bases loaded.
The very next batter, Dodgers’ starter Hyun-Jin Ryu, got into the fun with a run scoring single of his own for his fourth RBI.
Ryu was pretty good on the mound as well limiting the Giants to four hits over 6.2 innings. This would be the lefty’s first win against the Giants in four tries this season.
As if Uribe wasn’t already having a great night, he would come to the plate in the seventh inning and smack a two-run shot into the left-center field gap to leave him just a single short of the cycle. He has now moved his average up to .280 and given the Dodgers a big lift hitting .341 in his last ten starts.
The Dodgers, now winners of the last 11 of 13, will look to continue their winning ways tomorrow sending Stephen Fife (3-2, 2.83) to oppose Madison Bumgarner (8-5, 3.08).

Hanley Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 15 and is now 30-for-61(.492) during the streak.
Matt Kemp will likely be out a few days after coming out of the game after only two innings with an irritated AC Joint in the left shoulder. DL is a possibility but for now he is day-to-day.
Yasiel Puig is only 3 for his last 14 but extended his hit streak to nine.Tweet

After swinging and missing at a pitch during his second-inning plate appearance, Kemp grimaced, dropped his bat, and immediately reached for his left shoulder.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia is the latest to say that Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig is not yet deserving of an All-Star selection.
While acknowledging the talent of the 22-year-old the former big league cat catcher stated that he believed Puig’s stint in the majors was not long enough to deserve selection to the mid-summer classic.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to a trade on Saturday night with the Miami Marlins that will net them starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco. The trade had been rumored for the last week with a couple other teams involved but the Dodgers were always seen as the favorite since Nolasco grew up in Southern California.
Nolasco is a career 81-72 with a 4.44 ERA including a 5-8, 3.85 ERA...
Last week, Bruce Bochy was quoting in saying that he didn't believe emerging Los Angeles Dodgers rookie superstar Yasiel Puig deserved a place on the National League All-Star team. This was potentially detrimental to Puig's All-Star hopes considering the fact that Bochy will manage the National League squad later this month in the All-Star Game."Generally, guys that...
Ricky Nolasco is finally coming home.
The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired the right-hander and Southern California native from the Miami Marlins on Saturday in exchange for three minor league pitchers.
The Dodgers sent Steven Ames, Josh Wall and Angel Sanchez to Miami in the deal. Los Angeles also received international signing bonus slot No. 96, which is valued at $197,000.
Jonathan Papelbon made headlines last week when he was asked whether Dodgers rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig should make the All-Star team, despite only having just over a month on the major league roster. Papelbon made no bones about it: he did not consider Puig an All-Star. And he said it...
Remember when the Dodgers acquired Manny Ramirez in 2008?
The man who’s considered by some to be the best right-handed hitter to ever play the game, who propelled the Dodgers to the 2008 NL West Championship and helped take the team to back-to-back NLCSes in 2008 and 2009, the man who found himself caught up in steroid and performance enhancing drug controversies throughout his...
Starting pitcher, Madison Bumgarner (9-5, 3.05 ERA) has proven to be the best and most consistent pitcher so far this season for the San Francisco Giants (40-46). Today’s game against division rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers (41-44), proved it once again, even with a few hiccups along the way.
A new system for the Giants’ reeked havoc on the first inning of the game as all the...
Just when the Los Angeles Dodgers thought they were going to get a weekend in San Francisco without seeing Matt Cain, the weather intervened.
Instead, he'll start Friday's series opener for the Giants against the visiting Dodgers, whom Cain has dominated in recent years. But Cain also hasn't seen a lineup as potent as the one Los Angeles has fielded of late - one that...
The Dodgers announced that they have acquired Ricky Nolasco from the Marlins.
Juan Uribe knocked in seven runs, Matt Cain couldn’t survive the third inning and the Giants continued to slide in their 10-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Cain threw 75 pitches through 2.1 innings, giving up six hits and eight runs while walking four and striking out just one before being replaced. Friday marked the first time since May 26 that Cain had been...
