Series: The Giants lead the Dodgers 2-1 in the NLDS Top 5 after San Francisco Win a game 3 for ages on Monday night.. San Francisco won its regular season games this year 10-9.
The Giants and Dodgers head to Chavez Raven on Tuesday night in the NFL Series Elimination Game 4 after San Francisco’s epic 1-0 win in Game Three on Monday night. Evan Longoria broke the 1 for 35 slip with a home attack from Max Scherzer in the fifth inning for the only match.
San Francisco closed off the Dodgers’ vaunted offense for the second time in the series as debutante Alex Wood (4 2/3 innings, two strokes, four strokes) alongside Tyler Rogers, Jake McGee, and close rookie Camilo Duvall in a five stroke. Be quiet. Duvall made two saves through two goalless rounds, in the process becoming the only rookie to save at least two runs and not let a starting player since saves became an official stat in 1969.
The Giants were aided by an outstanding defense from short-lived Brandon Crawford, whose possession of the Mookie Betts liner ended the seventh inning and stole the Dodgers from the tie round, and quarterback Steven Duggar, who defeated Chris Taylor. Double RBI in sixth place. The Giants also got a break from Mother Nature to finish the game when heavy Los Angeles winds kept Duval 106.9 mph on the field, enabling Duggar to catch her on the warning track to finish the game.
Game 4 will feature Giants right-hand man Anthony Disclavani taking the hill on his first-ever post-season appearance. The 31-year-old has started six times against the Dodgers and is 0-3 with a 7.33 ERA and six home runs allowed. However, DeSclafani’s recent start against Los Angeles produced a six-goal innings to the Giants’ eventual 3-2 win on September 3.
The Dodgers announced late Tuesday morning that they will be going with right-hander Walker Buehler on three days off for Game 4 on Tuesday night. Buehler lost the first game last Friday, giving up three winning runs in 6 1/3 innings as Logan Webb and the Giants prevailed 4-0.
The former Vacaville High School and Saint Mary’s College Tony Ginsulin was also in the process of considering starting the Dodgers. Gonsolin, who has yet to play in this post-season, started 13 games for Los Angeles in the regular season and was 4-1 with a 3.23 ERA.
If the Giants win in Los Angeles again on Tuesday, they will advance to the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2012, with the Braves likely to be their opponent. However, Tuesday’s Dodgers win makes Thursday’s Game 5 winner-takes-all at Oracle Park with Webb on the hill in San Francisco.
