Giants score 6 runs in 1st in 8-4 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES - Michael Morse keyed a six-run first inning with a two-run single, and the San Francisco Giants beat Los Angeles 8-4 on Friday, spoiling a Dodgers' home opener played nearly two weeks after they began the season in Australia.

David Huff (1-0) got the victory, allowing two hits in 1 2-3 innings of relief while striking out three.

After retiring the first two batters, Hyun-Jin Ryu got pummeled for six runs while giving up six hits, including four in a row as the Giants batted around. They finished Ryu with two more runs in the second, extending their lead to 8-0.

Ryu (1-1) gave up eight runs - six earned - and eight hits while getting six outs. The left-hander walked three and struck out two while making his third start in six games. He was moved up in the rotation after injured ace Clayton Kershaw went on the disabled list for the first time in his career with a strained muscle in his back. Kershaw may be out a month.
