Moore, 27, struck a seven Dodgers and three walks to put his 8-10 record . Jewel acquired lefty Tampa Bay in last boundary changes majors is especially remarkable because a few years ago had a surgery ‘Tommy John’ .
The Dodgers twice came close to breaking the “double-zero” to Moore, but the center fielder Denard Span made great catches, especially the ninth inning with a drive of Kike Hernandez , barriendose center-left.
With the win, the Giants avoided being swept in the crucial series for the Dodgers, whose lead wascut to two games in Division west of the National League .
Blandon Belt produced the first run in the fourth inning with a hit against the opener and defeated Ross Stripling (3-5) . Joe Panik extended to 3-0 with a homer in two runs in that inning.
