SAN FRANCISCO — The Giants closed out an ignominious chapter of their longtime rivalry with the Dodgers on Sunday night.
With a 4-3 loss in 10 innings at Oracle Park, the Giants were handed their third sweep of the year by the Dodgers and hit a historic low by finishing a dismal 4-15 in the season series with their National League West foes. The 15 losses were the most the Giants have suffered in a single season against the Dodgers since moving to the West Coast in 1958.
Los Angeles outscored San Francisco by a 99-55 margin and took 13 of their final 14 games, a stark turn of events from last year, when these two clubs went toe-to-toe in a division race for the ages. The Giants narrowly edged the Dodgers for the NL West crown in 2021, but the gap between the rivals widened into a chasm this year.
