Another forgettable week ended for the Dodgers, who dropped three of four games to San Francisco at AT&T Park this past weekend.

Southern California native Evan Longoria clubbed a three-run homer in the first inning and Brandon Belt chimed in with a run-scoring double in the third as the Giants won 4-2 on Sunday.

Enrique Hernandez’s base hit in the sixth and pinch hitter Joc Pederson’s single in the seventh drove in runs for the Dodgers (12-15).

The Giants captured the nightcap of a doubleheader 8-3 on Saturday behind a three-run double from Austin Jackson (two hits with a run) and Kelby Tomlinson (two hits and a run) driving in two.

Corey Seager slapped a two-run homer in the first inning for the Boys in Blue.

Rookie pitcher Walker Buehler collected his first big league win, a 15-6 rout of the Giants in the first game.

Buehler struck out six, walked one, allowed six hits with two runs across five innings.

The Dodgers’ offense was paced by Pederson (four hits), who had four runs batted in and Cody Bellinger (three runs and three hits), who had three RBIs.

San Francisco’s 6-4 win on Friday saw Gorkys Hernandez (two hits with a run) drive in a run while Longoria (two hits) bashed a solo homer.

Miami edged the Dodgers 8-6 on Wednesday at Chavez Ravine as Clayton Kershaw (1-4) gave up five hits, three runs with six walks and seven strikeouts.

J.T. Realmuto (two runs and two hits) walloped a three-run home run for the Marlins, while Yasmani Grandal and Matt Kemp each slapped two-run homers for the Dodgers.

Miami captured a 3-2 decision on Tuesday as Cameron Maybin (two hits) had a run-scoring double and Realmuto added a solo shot.

Austin Barnes delivered a run-producing double and Chase Utley had a bases-loaded walk.

On Monday, the Dodgers pulled out a 2-1 victory as Hernandez had three hits including a solo homer and two defensive gems while playing shortstop.
