The San Francisco Giants needed just three hits to defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers, with a one-run scoreline, in Game 3 of the National League Division Series.
With Monday’s win, the San Francisco team reaches 20 wins per shutout in 2021, the most in all of MLB.
Evan Longoria was the great offensive figure of the night, hitting a home run off Max Scherzer’s deliveries.
On the pitching side, Alex Wood was on the mound for 4.2 innings of work, where he only allowed two hits and had four strikeouts.
Also noteworthy is the Giants’ defensive play, especially for Brandon Crawford’s impressive catch that struck down a dangerous threat from the Dodgers in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Now, the Giants are up 2-1 in the series and on Tuesday’s matchday they will seek their pass to the National League Championship Series.
