Pitching and defense key for the San Francisco Giants to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 in NLDS Game 3

Brendon Crawford’s 100 mph save saved a run from the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Bates bat and eventually saved the game for the San Francisco Giants in Game 3 of the National League Division Series.

Crawford’s glove, Longoria’s bat and pitching staff’s nine-shot out innings led by starter Alex Wood led the Giants to the road against the Dodgers and Ax Max Scherzer.

The Giants took to the Dodgers Stadium on Monday night and overcame the Dodgers, with a 1-0 victory over Avon Longoria-run solo home that put them on the verge of returning to the NLCS.
