Giants 4, Dodgers 2

Now we're talking. Matt Moore looking good, Clayton Kershaw not winning.

Here's the story, part of it ---

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Clayton Kershaw pitched three more hitless innings on Tuesday, but three Giants homered off Dodgers relievers in a 4-2 San Francisco win.
Giants starter Matt Moore was nearly as impressive as Kershaw, striking out five in three scoreless innings while allowing three hits.
"That was probably as free as I've felt this spring, as far as not really thinking about mechanics or a release point or staying at a certain effort level," Moore said. "I think today I just picked the glove up and just [was] athletic."
Kershaw walked Gorkys Hernandez on a 3-2 pitch to lead off the game. Hernandez was thrown out trying to steal second by catcher Yasmani Grandal and Kershaw retired the next eight batters, striking out three. He hasn't allowed a hit in any of the six innings he's pitched this spring.
"He had a little edge from that first pitch on," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "Today obviously was productive for him."
The Giants scored in the fourth inning off Josh Fields, with a single by Joe Panik followed by Brandon Belt's triple past right fielder Yasiel Puig.
The Dodgers scored twice in the fourth off Joan Gregorio, on an RBI single by Logan Forsythe and a fielder's-choice grounder by Puig and error by Panik.
San Francisco tied the score in the fifth on a solo home run by Jae-gyun Hwang off Steve Geltz. Mac Williamson slugged a solo homer off Luis Avilan in the sixth inning for a 3-2 Giants lead, and Chris Marrero homered off Grant Dayton in the seventh.
