AT&T Park, San Francisco, California
SAN FRANCISCO -- Earning his first career win against the Los Angeles Dodgers was a big step for San Francisco pitcher Matt Cain. Sweeping a three-game series from the Giants' division rivals was even more critical.
• The Giants swept the Dodgers at home for the first time since a four-game sweep in June 2004.
• Giants starter Matt Cain improved to 1-8 all-time against the Dodgers.
• Edgar Renteria provided all of the game's offense with a two-run triple in the sixth inning.
• The Dodgers have scored just 20 runs in their last 11 games and have a paltry .175 batting average during the strech.
• The Giants picked up their third straight win and are 16-4 in their last 20 games.
LHP Ted Lilly will make his Dodgers debut Tuesday in Los Angeles against San Diego. Lilly, who was drafted by the Dodgers in 1996, was acquired from the Chicago Cubs before the trade deadline. ... Dodgers SS Rafael Furcal batted third for the first time this season after hitting in the leadoff spot most of the year. ... Renteria's triple was the 28th of his career. ... All three games of the series sold out and drew 128,651 fans total, the largest attendance for a three-game set at AT&T Park this season. ... Nine of the Giants' 10 runs in the series came with two outs. ... Theriot went hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts in his first game with Los Angeles.
