SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Shohei Ohtani had a solo home run and an RBI double among his three hits, and the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers pounded the rival San Francisco Giants 10-2 on Tuesday night.

Ohtani's 12th homer highlighted a four-run fourth inning that was capped by Gavin Lux's RBI triple. Teoscar Hernández doubled home a run and Max Muncy hit a sacrifice fly in the inning, backing Gavin Stone (4-1). Hernández later contributed a two-run triple.

Ohtani’s 446-foot drive landed above the brick facade in right-center for the longest home run at Oracle Park in nearly two years — since Christian Walker connected for a 461-foot drive against Alex Cobb on Aug. 15, 2022.

“You don’t see many guys hitting the ball (to) that part of the ballpark that far. Fortunately I played with one here,” manager Dave Roberts said of home run king Barry Bonds. “That was pretty impressive. ... That’s Barry territory.”

Ohtani thought he might reach the water of McCovey Cove like he watched Bonds do all those years.

“I thought I hit one today,” Ohtani said, “but I was disappointed it didn’t go over.”

Will Smith hit an RBI single in the fifth in the Dodgers' sixth straight victory in the series dating to last year. Los Angeles has won 14 of 17 at Oracle and 10 of 12 overall against the Giants since being swept at home from June 16-18, 2023.

Heliot Ramos hit an RBI single in the sixth for the Giants, but the Dodgers added on in the seventh when Mookie Betts tripled and scored on Ohtani's double.

Ohtani's new teammates with the Dodgers are loving his fast start at the plate.

“This is the first year where he’s really got to focus on hitting so it’ll be a lot of fun to watch,” Stone said.

Miguel Rojas added an RBI double in the ninth for the Dodgers.

Stone allowed one run and five hits over six innings to win his second consecutive start and fourth straight decision. The Dodgers extended a franchise record by allowing four runs or fewer in 21 straight games, winning 17 of them.

Giants starter Keaton Winn (3-6) allowed five runs and five hits in four-plus innings. The right-hander gave way to Randy Rodriguez with two aboard and no outs in the fifth.

Athletic trainer Dave Groeschner and manager Bob Melvin came out to the mound to check on the rookie right-hander, who lost his third straight start.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Dodgers: OF Jason Heyward (back) had three at-bats for Triple-A Oklahoma City at Sacramento and got through it healthy, according to Roberts. Heyward was hoping to get to the ballpark and check in with the club. ... RHP Bobby Miller will throw two simulated innings in Arizona on Wednesday. He was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with shoulder inflammation.

Giants: An MRI exam of OF Jung Hoo Lee's dislocated left shoulder showed he has structural damage after crashing into the wall Sunday. He met with team doctors Monday night and now will seek a second opinion with Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Thursday in Los Angeles. ... LHP Blake Snell (strained left inner thigh) will pitch Friday for Triple-A Sacramento and then rejoin the Giants. ... Jorge Soler (strained right shoulder) hit live pitching and if he is fine afterward will then join Sacramento for a rehab game. ... C Patrick Bailey was placed back on the seven-day concussion list retroactive to Sunday. He came off the concussion list Saturday but was scratched the past two days with symptoms of a cold.

UP NEXT

The Dodgers will have a bullpen game as the Giants start RHP Logan Webb (3-4, 3.38 ERA) in the series finale as San Francisco concludes a 16-day stretch without a day off.

Rinse and Repeat: T-Mobile Tops 3rd Party Network Report Yet Again

2024-07-18 01:08 Last Updated At:01:10

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 17, 2024--

The Un-carrier is getting the dubs, over and over again. Ookla, a global leader in network intelligence and connectivity insights, today shared a report ranking T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) as the top network performer nearly across the board in its Speedtest ® Connectivity United States 1H 2024 report.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20240717618545/en/

It’s a near identical result — T-Mobile winning most categories — to each network report Ookla has published over the last two years.

"With this report, there should now be no doubt that T-Mobile has reigned as the nation’s network champion for years,” said Ulf Ewaldsson, president of technology at T-Mobile. “As 5G solutions continue to evolve, we will be right there, driving the industry forward as we have done since launching the first nationwide 5G network in 2019."

“But how can I know these results are objective?” asks the average skeptic. Ookla’s reports leverage tests from millions of real-world users from across the country with billions of data points to identify the best performing carrier in each category.

We’ll let the stats do the talking:

The Un-carrier also retains its title as the nation’s fastest network, leading in 45 states and the District of Columbia as well as in 73 of the 100 most populous U.S. cities. For comparison, Verizon was the fastest in just six cities and AT&T was fastest in only one.

T-Mobile is the leader in 5G, delivering America’s largest, fastest and most awarded 5G network. The Un-carrier’s 5G network covers more than 330 million people across two million square miles. More than 300 million people nationwide are covered by T-Mobile’s super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G with over 2x more square miles of coverage than similar mid-band 5G offerings from the Un-carrier’s closest competitors.
