Chapman homers and Giants hit 10 doubles, their most since 1912, in 10-4 win over Dodgers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Matt Chapman homered and drove in three runs, and the San Francisco Giants hit 10 doubles to rout the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-4 on Sunday in front of a sellout crowd of 40,428 at Oracle Park.

It was the team's most doubles since the New York Giants had 12 at Brooklyn on April 11, 1912.

Every starter had a hit for the Giants, and San Francisco finished with a season-high 11 extra-base hits to take the rubber game for its first series win at home against the rival Dodgers since June 2022.

“We’re resilient,” Giants manager Bob Melvin said. “After tough losses, we come out and do stuff like that almost every time. ... We’ve got to roll some games together leading up to the (All-Star) break. This was a good start in what is kind of a tough stretch right now.”

Los Angeles starter James Paxton (7-2) allowed a career-high nine earned runs and 12 hits in four innings, losing for the first time in four career starts against the Giants.

“They were just on the fastball today,” Paxton said. “We tried to go to some other things, but they were just all over it.”

Jorge Soler, David Villar, Heliot Ramos and Patrick Bailey all had run-scoring doubles as San Francisco scored in each of the first four innings to build a 9-0 lead.

Bailey added another RBI double in the eighth.

“It feels really good to take a series from an elite team like the Dodgers,” Soler said through a translator. “After winning the series, it kind of gives us more confidence to know that we can play to that level.”

Spencer Bivens (2-1) impressed in his first career start, limiting the Dodgers to one run and four hits with three strikeouts and no walks in five innings.

“I’ve been waiting my whole life for that,” Bivens said. “It’s really special. To be able to help the team win, to put us in a good position to help the bullpen, whatever they have me do, I’ll do it. I’m just happy I was able to help them out.”

Chris Taylor homered and doubled in a run for Los Angeles, which had won four straight series against the Giants.

Shohei Ohtani went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts.

San Francisco finished a 5-2 homestand with series wins against the Cubs and Dodgers.


Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (left shoulder surgery) is expected to resume playing catch early this week after being shut down last Monday due to lingering soreness.

Giants: RHP Alex Cobb (left hip surgery/right shoulder soreness) began a rehab assignment with Class A San Jose and was scheduled to pitch Sunday night.


The Giants recalled RHP Landen Roupp from Triple-A Sacramento and designated RHP Spencer Howard for assignment. Roupp pitched 2 2/3 innings in relief, allowing three runs and three hits with two walks and three strikeouts.


Dodgers: RHP Bobby Miller (1-1, 6.75 ERA) will open a three-game home series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night opposite RHP Ryne Nelson (5-6, 5.69).

Giants: RHP Hayden Birdsong (0-0, 5.79 ERA) will make his second career start Tuesday night as San Francisco begins a three-game series at Atlanta. The Braves will counter with RHP Reynaldo López (6-2, 1.70), who has won his last three starts and four straight decisions.
