LOS ANGELES (AP) Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 while working into the seventh inning and San Francisco Giants hit three home runs in a 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers and Yasiel Puig on Saturday.

Puig started in right field and batted leadoff for the Dodgers a day after he was benched for arriving late for stretching and batting practice.

Michael Morse had a solo shot in the fourth inning and the Giants got back-to-back homers in the fifth from Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey.

Bumgarner (1-0) was charged with two runs and hit hits in 6 1-3 innings and struck out 10 in his second outing.

Paul Maholm (0-1) gave up five runs and seven hits through 4 1-3 innings in his first start for the Dodgers.
