Jonathan Sanchez pitched seven crisp innings and Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer for the second straight game, leading San Francisco to a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night that put the Giants within one game of first place in the NL West.

The division-leading Padres lost 4-2 to Colorado earlier in the day for their 10th consecutive defeat. The Giants have picked up 5 1/2 games on San Diego during the Padres’ skid, going 5-4 during that span
It’s the closest they’ve been to first place in the division in the last 27 days.

After hitting four home runs in a 5-4 comeback victory on Saturday night, the Giants got just enough offense to get by the slumping Dodgers, who dropped their third straight series to their rivals.

    You guys need to lower ticket prices cut in half all across the board. Attendance will SKY ROCKET, as will everything else. SMARTEST move for your team in L.A. in this economy. Smartest move is NOT to just raise ticket prices every year. Less (actually affordable for most people) is MORE (EVERYTHING dealing with Los Angeles Dodgers). You should start next season, and these final games should have some half off nights to show you what I mean above.
