The big boys step up

Madison Bumgarner beat Clayton Kershaw, thanks to great pitching and 2 RBIs from Buster and a save from Santiago Casilla. The dodgers  had their disgusting 8-game win streak at chavez latrine ended. 

These 3 guys are a big part of why the Giants have won three World Series. 

Read the mlb.com story and see that Kershaw is no longer the unbeatable guy.....
LOS ANGELES -- In a rematch of last week's ace showdown, Buster Posey homered and drove in both runs as the Giants and Madison Bumgarner edged the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw, 2-1, Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.
After his double no-decision duel with Kershaw last week in San Francisco, Bumgarner (2-1) allowed one run on five hits in eight innings with nine strikeouts and one walk. Going seven innings for the first time this year, Kershaw (1-2) allowed both runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and no walks. Both have 3.73 ERAs. Santiago Casilla earned his sixth save. The loss snapped the Dodgers' home win streak at eight.
The only Dodgers run scored in the fourth inning on a fielder's choice grounder by Howie Kendrick after Jimmy Rollins singled and callup Kiké Hernandez doubled off the glove of Giants center fielder Angel Pagan. Hernandez, representing the tying run, was erased in a rundown trying to advance to third on Kendrick's grounder. Hernandez also singled and struck out twice in his Dodgers debut after arriving from Oklahoma City during batting practice.
MOMENTS THAT MATTERED Bumgarner bears down: Bumgarner thrived very simply, by stopping rallies before they started. Only three Dodgers reached scoring position against him.
Not like Kershaw: The fourth-inning home run by Posey was the fourth allowed by Kershaw this season in his fifth start. In 2014, Kershaw didn't allow his fourth home run until his eighth start and allowed only nine in 29 starts.
