SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A theatrical Trevor Bauer struck out 11 in his first career start against San Francisco, Chris Taylor hit a two-run homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers extended their winning streak to five by beating the Giants 2-1. 

With the Dodgers down to only four available relievers, Bauer held the Giants to two hits over 6 1/3 innings and threw a season-high 126 pitches.

Bauer, who signed a $102 million, three-year deal with the Dodgers in the offseason, was up for the drama in his first experience of the rivalry.
