SF Giants Brandon Crawford stole a run, saved the game from a gravity catch.

LOS ANGELES – With a slim lead on the line, Brendan Crawford refused gravity to catch him.

The Los Angeles Dodgers had a potential runner to tie the game at the second base of the seventh inning, threatening to erode the San Francisco Giants’ one-run lead. Mookie Bates smokes reliever Jack McGee’s pitch at 100 miles per hour on the left field.

But Crawford, a 34-year-old shortstop, jumped at least a foot into the air to fight him, ending the innings and saving Avon Longoria’s lead at the solo home from a dominant Max Scherzer. The only score of the Giants’ 1-0 win against the Dancers on Monday night gave San Francisco a 2-1 NLDS lead.
