LOS ANGELES — Wilmer Flores homered and the Giants beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Saturday to give Gabe Kapler his first win as San Francisco manager.
After getting outscored 17-2 in the first two games, the Giants took advantage of Dodgers starter Alex Wood’s struggles to avoid their first 0-3 start since 2012.
They scored in each of the first four innings. Wood had trouble finding the plate, throwing 67 pitches, including 29 balls, in three innings.
Dodgers pitchers didn’t have a 1-2-3 inning until the seventh, by new reliever Blake Treinen.
