LOS ANGELES -- Hunter Pence's grand slam and career-high seven RBIs helped San Francisco romp past the Los Angeles Dodgers 19-3 Saturday night, the most runs they've ever allowed at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers' magic number for clinching the NL West remained at four.

The last time the Los Angeles allowed 19 runs at home was on Sept. 12, 1961, when Philadelphia won 19-10 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in a game started by none other than Sandy Koufax. Dodger Stadium opened the next season.

Brandon Belt also homered and set career highs with five hits and six RBIs during the Giants' 22-hit attack.
